Translation for the word "menace"?


I've looked in the Oxford Latin dictionary and online for the Latin

Thanks a bunch,

I've been skipping around the Loeb Baebrius & Phaedrus (ed. Perry) which is an ornament to the series: it contains an excellent introduction to the entire tradition of fable writing and a 100+ pg. appendix titled "An Analytical Survey of Greek & Latin Fables in the Aesopic Tradition" that gives a summary and references for nearly every fable that has come down to us in Greek or Latin.

Phonetic Confusion
