De Sene


I'm using some new crossword puzzle software (online, fast, easy) to create new puzzles to go with the new Aesop's fables I'm posting at

Today's fable at Latin Via Fables is De Sene ob impotentiam libidinem carnis relinquente: The Old Man who gave up his carnal pleasures on account of impotence. You can visit the Latin Via Fables page for this fable to see the Latin text, English translation and some grammar help.

Word List. Here is an alphabetical word list of the Latin words included in the puzzle:
amor, erigere, impotentia, insudare, libido, obesse, pater, poena, praeditus, sanctitas, sanctus, senex, singularis, tandem, Venus, vir, virga, virtus, vitium
