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

1. lŭto, āvi, ātum, 1, v. a. [2. lutum], to bedaub with mud or clay.

  1. I. Lit., Cato, R. R. 92: nidosque reversa lutabit hirundo, Calp. Ecl. 5, 17: lutati tituli statuarum, Lampr. Elag. 14.
  2. II. Transf., to bedaub, besmear: ne lutet immundum nitidos ceroma capillos, Mart. 14, 50, 1: crassis lutatus amomis, Pers. 3, 104.
