    Yes, indeed. How the situation has changed! No “venator” in the Oxford but “venation” means the arrangement of veins on a leaf or on the wing of an insect. I wonder if, given that “-or” indicates the doer of an action, “venator” might mean the arranger or organiser of what needs to be done. Then there is “venter” (as in “speaker”) n. : a speaker who expresses or gives vent to a personal opinion or grievance

    Venator is the Latin word for hunter. Paul.

    Thank you to Paul Star and Ken Sims for the meaning of ‘venator’.
