oppidan, op′i-dan, n. at Eton, a student who is not a foundationer or colleger.

On the other hand while 'meridian' and 'quartan' are French, 'publican', 'veteran', and 'oppidan' are Latin.
The convivial entertainments of Check nights and oppidan dinners had already become institutions of a past age.
From the absence of his name on the college lists, it may be inferred that he was an oppidan.
