Lewis & Short

Parsing inflected forms may not always work as expected. If the following does not give the correct word, try Latin Words or Perseus.

gangraena, ae, f., = γάγγραινα, a cancerous, eating ulcer on the body, a gangrene.

  1. I. Lit., Cels. 5, 26, 34; Lucil. ap. Non. 117, 22; Varr. ib. 25.
  2. * II. Trop.: mali gangraena, Varr. ap. Non. 117, 28.
