The longest word of classical Latin is the word subductisupercilicarptor [24 characters], meaning “a person who criticizes and raises his eyebrows upwards” – literally, this term was for extremely critical critic. Aulus Gellius (2nd century CE) also mentions other long word in his “Attic Nights”: trisaeclisenex, which literally means “an old man living for three generations”.
