Abbreviations
as-sentior (ads-, Fleck., B. and K., Halm, Weissenb.; ass-, Merk.), sensus, 4, v. dep. sentio (the act. form assentio, īre, was out of use even in the time of Varro, Varr. L. L. Fragm. ap. Gell. 2, 25, 9; cf. Spald. ad Quint. 1, 5, 55. The middle use of the word corresponds far better with its signif. than the active; for while adsentio prop. signif. only sentiendo accedere ad aliquem or aliquid, to make known one's inclination or feeling toward any object, whether in favor of or against it; the middle, assentior, = sentiendo se applicare, designates a friendly joining of one's self to any one. The act. form, adsentio, is found in Plaut. Am. 2, 2, 192; id. Rud. 4, 3, 36; Att. and Pompon. ap. Non. p. 469, 16 sq.; Verg. A. 2, 130; in Cic. only three times in epist. style (which is worthy of notice; cf. absque), Fam. 5, 2, 9; Att. 9, 9; and ad Q. Fr. 2, 1, 2; cf. Diom. p. 377 P.; but after the time of the poets of the Aug. per. it is often found, particularly in the post-Aug. histt., together with the class. mid. form, used in like manner: assensit precibus Rhamnusia justis, Ov.

Vesp. 6; Curt. 4, 13, 4; Gell. 6, 5, 5 al.), lit., to join one in opinion, to agree with; hence, to assent to, give assent, to approve, give approval; with dat. or absol.: adsensus sum homini, Lucil. ap.
