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.

rĕ-nīdĕo (perf. reniduit, ἐμειδίασεν, Gloss. Philox.), ēre, v. n. [perh. kindr. with νίζω], to shine again, shine back; to glitter, glisten, be bright or resplendent (poet. and not freq. till after the Aug. period).
