- n. Plural form of septemvir.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
For we all agreed with him and annulled the acts of the septemvirs.
And although all these proceedings cannot be ratified, if you annul his laws, still I think that they ought all to be separately taken note of, article by article; and that we ought formally to decide that the appointment of septemvirs was null and void; and that nothing is ratified which is said to have been done by them.
Ant.P. 394-396, v. _Equites_] [Footnote 37: He had been one of the septemvirs appointed to preside over the distribution of the lands.] [Footnote 38: Janus was the name of a street near the temple of Janus, especially frequented by bankers and usurers.
