Latin term or phrase:aut acuentes eum quasi incedentes aut cum colore viridi miscentes...
...aut nigro infuscantes aut virenti sensim albo illuminantes.
I know it's long, but it's a quotation. It's from chapter 26 of the "Noctes Acticae" by Aulus Gellius. It has been inserted into a sentence in the book I'm translating and I want to know what it means.
