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.

pectĭno, āvi, ātum, 1, v. a. [pecten], to comb, card, heckle.

  1. I. Lit.: caudae setas, App. M. 6, p. 185, 18.
  2. II. Transf., to harrow: segetem, Plin. 18, 21, 50, § 186.
    Hence, pectĭnātus, a, um, P. a., combed, i. e. sloped two ways like a comb: pectenatum (so, not written pectinatum) tectum dicitur a similitudine pectinis in duas partes devexum, ut testudinatum in quatuor, Fest. p. 212 and 213 Müll.
