Word Wednesday

Standard

Today’s word is SYBARITE. It comes from the Greek which is a person from the ancient Greek colony of Sybaris and also comes from the Latin Sybanta which also means someone from that area.

A sybarite is someone devoted to luxuries and pleasures. It also, in our time, means someone who is sensual and loses themselves in sensuality.
