Abbreviations
agilis, e, adj. ago. Pass., that can be easily moved, easily movable (mostly poet.; not in Cic.): qui restitissent agili classi naves tormenta machinasque portantes? Liv. 30, 10: haec querulas agili percurrit pollice chordas, Ov. Am. 2, 4, 27: factus inops agili peragit freta caerula remo, id. H. 15, 65; so, agilis rota, id. P. 2, 10, 34: aer agilior et tenuior, Sen. Q. N. 2, 10 al.

— Act. That moves easily or quickly; nimble, agile, quick, rapid: sic tibi secretis agilis dea saltibus adsit, swift or fleet-footed Diana, Ov. H. 4, 169: sic super agilis Cyllenius, swift-flying, id. M. 2, 720.

— With the accessory idea of activity, quick, hasty, or precipitate in action; prompt, active, busy (with direct reference to the action, and hence used of inanimate things; while sedulus, diligent, assiduous, regards more the state of mind; both, however, refer to the simple idea of mobility, Doed.
