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.

ālium, i, n., v. allium.

allĭum (better alium; v. Plaut. Most. 48 Ritschl, and Corp. Ins. tit. iv. 2070), i, n. [cf. ἀλλᾶς, seasoned meat], garlic (much used for food among the poor).

  1. I. Lit.: oboluisti alium, Plaut. Most. 1, 1, 38; so id. Poen. 5, 5, 34 al.; Hor. Epod. 3, 3; Plin. 19, 6, 32, § 101.
    Plur. alia, Verg. E. 2, 11.
  2. II. Trop.: atavi nostri cum alium ac saepe eorum verba olerent, tamen optime animati erant, Varr. ap. Non. 201, 6 (where the double trope olereanimati is worthy of notice).
