Venus,-us (s.m.IV), or venum,-i (s.n.II): occurs only in the declensional forms venui (dat.sg., ‘for sale’), veno (dat.sg. ‘for sale’) and venum (acc. sg.): sale. Used with the verb ‘do’ [dare], sometimes spelled as one word: venumdo or venundo (acc. or dat., pred.) ‘for sale;’ dare aliquem venum, to sell something; venum dare, to put up for sale; also veno dare. In late Latin, fero (ferre) ‘to bring, to carry’ has been used.

- [fungi] Haec est species, quam nunc solam, nunc sequenti intermixtam, nomine Champignon insignitam venum ferre solent ruricolae (S&A), this is the species, which sometimes alone, sometimes intermixed with the following, distinguished [i.e. designated] by the name Champignon, the country-people are accustomed to put up for sale.

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
