or uti, meaning 'as;' see apparently; see vidi;

passive infinitive: videri 'to be seen; to seem, to appear'

person 2 videris 'you seem' videmini 'you (pl.) seem'

person 3 videtur 'he, she, it seems' videntur 'they seem'
- ut videtur (adv. phrase), as you will, as it seems, apparently.

- sed sphaerulae nigrae sunt, virore quodam (heterogeneo,ut videtur) interdum obductae, at numquam canae (S&A), but the sphaerules are a [shining] black, sometimes covered with a certain greenness (heterogeneous, it seems), but never grayish-white.
