affătim (also adf- ), adv. Serv. ad Verg. A. 1, 123, cites fatim = abundanter; cf.: fatiscor, defatiscor, fatigo; Corss. Ausspr. I. p. 158, refers fatim to the same root as χατίς, χῆρος.
I. To satisfaction, sufficiently, abundantly, enough (so that one desires no more, therefore subjective; while satis signifies sufficient, so that one needs nothing more, therefore objective, Doed. Syn. I. p. 108 sq.): adfatim edi, bibi, lusi, Liv. Andron. ap. Paul. ex Fest. p. 11 Müll., after Hom. Od. 15, 372 (Com. Rel. p. 4 Rib.): “edas de alieno quantum velis, usque adfatim,till you have enough, Plaut. Poen. 3, 1, 31: miseria una uni quidem homini est adfatim, id. Trin. 5, 2, 61 (where adfatim, as sometimes also satis, abunde, frustra, is constr. as an adj.): “eisdem seminibus homines adfatim vescuntur,Cic. N. D. 2, 51: “adfatim satiata (aquila),id.
