Lenten, 1) used in Lent: “a hare in a l. pie,” Rom. II, 4, 139 (much quibbling).
2) much less than sufficient, spare, scanty, poor, answering very modest expectations: “a good l. answer,” Tw. I, 5, 9. “what l. entertainment the players shall receive from you,” Hml. II, 2, 329. Such is perhaps also the l. pie in Rom. II, 4, 139.
