Européan. n.s. [europæus, Latin.] Belonging to Europe.
Mean while the Spaniards in America,
Near to the line the sun approaching saw,
And hop'd their European coasts to find
Clear'd from our ships by the autumnal wind. Waller.
What was the waste of war, what fierce alarms
Shook Asia's crown with European arms! Dryden's Æn.
He alone defy'd
The European thrones combin'd, and still
Had set at nought their machinations vain. Phillips.
