Personatus, a masker, or he that weareth a visour. Seneca
Personatus, tus, a maske.
Personatus, a, um. That hath a part in a play, a masker, or mummer, one disguised, that weareth a vizor, that taketh on him that he is not, counterfetted, hidden, that which seemeth faire outwardly, and, inwardly is verie deformed.
