Ἔρως ἀνίκατε μάχαν -> O love, invincible in battle!
Sophocles, Antigone, 781

Latin > English (Lewis & Short)

ab-rŏgo: āvi, ātum, 1, v. a.
I Lit., polit. t. t.: to annul in all its parts a law now in force, to repeal, to abrogate wholly (whereas derogo means to abrogate partly and abrogo to counteract;
v. these verbs), = ἀποκυρόω: rogando legem tollere, Front. Diff. 2195 P.; v. rogo (very freq. in Cic.): huic legi nec obrogari fas est, neque derogari ex hac aliquid licet, neque tota abrogari potest, this law cannot be invalidated by an opposing one, nor modified by restrictions, nor wholly repealed, Cic. Rep. 3, 22, from which example (cf. also id. ib. 2, 37; id. Att. 3, 23, 2, and many others in Liv.) it is evident that abrogare was constr. in the classical period with acc., and not, as later, with dat.; cf. Liv. 9, 34 Drak.—
   B Of a civil office: magistratum alicui, to take it from one, to recall it: si tibi magistratum abrogāsset, Cic. Verr. 2, 2, 57; id. Dom. 83; so id. Off. 3, 10: Cato legem promulgavit de imperio Lentulo abrogando, id. Q. Fr. 2, 3, 1 (so the correct read., not Lentuli).—
II Trop., in gen., to take away, to deprive of: male fidem servando illis quoque abrogant fidem, deprive others of credit, Plaut. Trin. 4, 4, 41; so Cic. Rosc. Com. 15; id. Ac. 2, 11; Auct. ad Her. 1, 10.
