Did You Know?
A cunctator has a habit of postponing or delaying action, often out of laziness. When you come across this unusual word, it’s very often capitalized — in this case, it refers specifically to the Roman statesman Fabius Maximus, who became well-known for his cautious military strategy against the Carthaginians during the Second Punic War in the 200s BCE. He was called the Cuncator, Latin for “delayer.”
[Latin cūnctātiō, cūnctātiōn-, from cūnctātus, past participle of cūnctārī, to delay; see konk- in the Appendix of Indo-European roots.]
