Parsing inflected forms may not always work as expected. If the following does not give the correct word, try Latin Words or Perseus.

  1. I. a person who sells goods for another, a factor, broker, agent; a huckster, hawker, peddler (cf.: circulator, negotiator): amata nautis multum et institoribus, Hor. Epod. 17, 20: mercis, Liv. 22, 25: hibernae tegetis, Juv. 7, 221.
