- Obsolete form of antigo.
From Old Spanish antigo, from Latin antīquus (variant form antīcus). The form antiguo in Spanish was probably the result of influence from the feminine form antigua on the older antigo. Compare Ladino antigo, Portuguese antigo, Catalan antic, Italian antico. Cf. Old French antif, which was also influenced by its feminine form antive (both replaced in modern French by a borrowed form antique).
