SPUERE

SPUERE
prohibitum Romae, ubi sacra Romana defossa fuêre, excidiô urbis Gallicanô, Liv. l. 5. c. 48. Alias efficaces sputi usus in vita, uti Veterum superstitio credidit. Hinc Plinius Despuimus comitiales morbos, h. e. contagia regerimus. Simili modo et defascinationes repercutimus, dextraque clauditatis occursum. Veniam quoque a Diis spei alicuius audacioris petimus, in sinum spuendo. Eâdem ratione terrâ despuere deprecatione in omni medicina mos est atque effectus adiuvare etc. l. 28. c. 4. Vide et supra Excreare, it. infra Sputum.
