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.

hālo, āvi, ātum, 1, v. n. and a., to breathe (poet.; cf.: feo, spiro).

  1. I. Neutr., to breathe, to emit vapor or fragrance, be fragrant: invitent croceis halantes floribus horti, Verg. G. 4, 109: ture calent arae sertisque recentibus halant, id. A. 1, 417.
  2. II. Act., to breathe out, exhale: et nardi florem, nectar qui naribus halat, Lucr. 2, 848; 6, 221; 391; Mart. 10, 48.
