Lewis : claudeo

claudeo, claudeo, ēre, or claudo, no perf., sum, ĕre, v. n. claudus, ground form of the more common claudico, to limp or halt, to be lame, to falter (mostly trop.). Claudeo: an ubi vos sitis, ibi consilium claudeat, Caecil. ap. Prisc. p. 889 P.

Claudo: neque ignorantia res claudit, Sall. ap. Don. ad Ter. Eun. 1, 2, 84 (id. H. 3, 61, 25 Dietsch): conjuratione claudit, id. ap. Prisc. p. 889 P. (id. H. 3, 80 ib.): claudat amor erga te meus, Front. Ep. p. 122 Nieb.

Of dub. form (yet it may be supposed that the passages in Cic. belong to claudeo as the regular form; cf. albeo = albico, candeo = candico, etc.; while the passages in Sall. infra belong to claudo): beatam vitam, etiam si ex aliquā parte clauderet, Cic. Tusc. 5, 8, 22: quid est cur claudere aut insistere orationem malint, id. Or. 51, 170 Meyer N. cr.: in quācumque enim unā (parte) plane clauderet, orator esse non posset, id. Brut. 59, 214: nihil socordia claudebat, Sall. Fragm. ap. Don. ad Ter. Eun. 1, 2, 84; and id. ib. 2, 3, 39 (id. H. inc. 107 Dietsch): si alterā parte claudet respublica, Liv. 22, 39, 3 Weissenb. ad loc.; Gell. 1, 7, 20; 13, 20, 10; App. Flor. 18, p. 359; id. de Deo Socr. 17, p. 51; Symm. Ep. 1, 27.
