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.

mĕsa, ae, f., = μέση, middle, pure Lat. media (post-Aug.).
Of hemp: tria ejus (cannabis) genera: laudatissima est e medio, quae mesa vocatur, the middle sort, Plin. 19, 9, 56, § 174.‡ † mĕsancŭlon, i, n. (mĕsancŭla, ae, f.), = μεσάγκυλον, a javelin, with a thong (acc. to others, a poise or bent handle) attached to the middle, Gell. 10, 25; cf.: mesanculum, teli missilis genus, Paul. ex Fest. p. 125 Müll.
