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.

1. nāsīca, ae, comm. adj. [nasus], who has a large or pointed nose, Arn. 6, 196; 3, 108.

2. Nāsīca, ae, m., a surname in the Scipio family. So P. Cornelius Scipio Nasica, who was declared to be the most virtuous man in the state, and on that account was sent to accompany the image of the Mater Idaea to Rome, Liv. 29, 14, 8; cf. Cic. Brut. 20, 79; Val. Max. 3, 7, 3.
