1. casnar, in the lang. of the Osci, an old man, Varr. L. L, 7, § 29, p. 86 Bip.; Paul. ex Fest. p. 47 Müll. Here belongs the fragment of Varr. ap. Non. p. 86, 20: cum more majorum ultro carnales arripiunt, where others prefer the reading casnares; cf. Momms. Unt. Dial. p. 268 (carnales is perh. a euphonic form for casnares, from a Lat. sing. carnal = casnar, as foedesum, plusima, asa, asena = foederum, plurima, etc.; cf. the letter R).
