Latin term or phrase: quibus quibusque cursus cardinis
Greetings,

Please see http://la.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venti
In mythologia Romana, Venti (-orum, m.), Graece Anemoi (Άνεμοι), erant di ventorum quibus quibusque cursus cardinis, unde sui venti venerunt, tributi sunt, et quibus quibusque anni tempora diversa tempestatisque status tributi sunt. Ventis Romanorum et Anemois Graecorum nomina dissimilia erant, sed aliter di ventorum Romanorum, mutati propria, simillimi dis ventorum Graecorum.

Many thanks,

to each of whom the points of the compass
Explanation:
'In mythologia Romana, Venti (-orum, m.), Graece Anemoi (Άνεμοι), erant di ventorum quibus quibusque cursus cardinis, unde sui venti venerunt, tributi sunt' = 'In Roman mythology, the Winds, Anemoi in Greek, were gods to each of whom (lit., to whom each) were assigned the courses of the (earth's) axes [we would say 'points of the compass'] whence his own winds came, etc.'

The first 'quibus' is the relative pronoun, the second (with the enclitic -'que' appended) is the indefinite adjective 'quisque', 'each, every'.
