  1. Apocopic form of fiano, third-person plural future of fire
    • early 14th century, Dante, “Canto XIX”, in Paradiso, lines 130–135:
      Vedrassi l'avarizia e la viltate
      di quei che guarda l'isola del foco,
      ove Anchise finì la lunga etate;
      e a dare ad intender quanto è poco,
      la sua scrittura fian lettere mozze,
      che noteranno molto in parvo loco.
      Be seen the avarice and poltroonery of him who guards the Island of the Fire, wherein Anchises finished his long life; and to declare how pitiful he is shall be his record in contracted letters which shall make note of much in little space.
