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.

Dārēus (so the best editt. of Cicero and Curtius; cf. Zumpt, Gramm. § 2) or Dā-rīus (Dărĭī, Sid. Carm. 9, 51:

  1. I. Dărīos, Aus. Ep. 5, 23, v. no. II.), ii, m., Δάρειος [a Persian word, from R. dar-, to hold: "the sustainer of the empire," Max. Müller, Science of Lang. 2, 220], the name of several Persian Kings, Cic. Fin. 5, 30 fin.; Plin. 6, 13, 16, § 41; Curt. and Just. passim; Ov. lb. 317; Claud. Epist. 1, 17.
  2. * II. Meton. for the gold coin stamped under Darius, a daric, Aus. l. l.
    Hence, Darīus, a, um, adj. (late Lat.), of Darius, opes, Mart. Cap. 6, § 578.
