exsiliō (present infinitive exsilīre, perfect active exsiluī); fourth conjugation, no passive

  1. I spring, bound or leap out, up or forth
    • c. 125 CE – 180 CE, Apuleius, Metamorphoses 8.25:
      Accepto tali sermone cogitabam subito velut lymphaticus exsilire, ut me ferocitate cernens exasperatum emptionem desineret.
      Hearing that, it crossed my mind to start leaping around like mad, so he’d give up the whole idea of buying me when he saw how savage I was when roused.
