Carried Away

Filed under: General — m759 @ 7:00 AM

"The word 'ablative' derives from the Latin ablatus ,
the (irregular) perfect passive participle of auferre 'to carry away'.[1]"

Etymology of 'profane'

Example —

See as well Cicero, In Verrem II. 1. 46

He reached Delos. There one night he secretly 46 
carried off, from the much-revered sanctuary of 
Apollo, several ancient and beautiful statues, and 
had them put on board his own transport. Next 
day, when the inhabitants of Delos saw their sanc- 
tuary stripped of its treasures, they were much 
distressed . . . .
Delum venit. Ibi ex fano Apollinis religiosissimo 
noctu clam sustulit signa pulcherrima atque anti- 
quissima, eaque in onerariam navem suam conicienda 
curavit. Postridie cum fanum spoliatum viderent ii 
qui Delum incolebant, graviter ferebant . . . .
