C. 4, 1, 21 : naribus labrisque non fere quicquam decenter ostendimus, tametsi derisus iis, contemptus, fastidium significari solet, nam et corrugare nares, ut Horatius ait ... indecorum est, etc., to turn up the nose, to sneer, Quint. 11, 3, 80: ne sordida mappa Corruget nares, cause you to turn up your nose, Hor. Ep. 1, 5, 22 : omnis copia narium, sweet-smelling flowers, id. C. 2, 15, 6 : de nare loqui, to speak through the nose, Pers. 1, 33 : Aesopus naris emunctae senex, of a clean nose, i. e. of sharp perception, of fine powers of observation, Phaedr. 3, 3, 14; so, (Lucilius) emunctae naris, Hor.

Non. 427, 32 (Sat. 20, 4): in naribus primoribus vix pertuli, Afran. ib. 33 (Com. Rel. v. 384 Rib.).--
