To Face. v.n. [from the noun.]
- To carry a false appearance; to play the hypocrite.
Thou needs must learn to laugh, to lye,
To face, to forge, to scoff, to company. Hubberd's Tale.
- To turn the face; to come in front.
Face about, man; you a soldier, and afraid of the enemy! Dryden's Spanish Fryar.
Then thrice the mounted squadrons ride around
The fire, and Arcite's name they thrice resound;
Hail and farewel they shouted thrice amain,
Thrice facing to the left, and thence they turn'd again. Dry.
