Words by William Whitaker - Latin dictionary with about 30,000 entries, with a few hundred prefixes and suffixes that further enlarge the range; these will generate tens of thousands of additional words - some of which are recognized Latin words, some are perfectly reasonable words which were never used by Cicero or Caesar but might have been used by Augustine or some monk at Jarrow, and some are nonsense.
Humanum Arts Latin-English Dictionary - The present dictionary is an improvisation based on a word-list originally from Lynn H. Nelson of the University of Kansas, containing about 8,000 headwords.
Latin Lexicon - Search for words or parts of words e.g. "trad" or "traditio". The search engine will return matches for as many letters as you enter; all searches are carried out on the usual lexical entry, i.e. the nom. sing. for nouns (traditio) or the 1st sing. pres. ind. act. for verbs (moneo).

Latin-English Dictionary Program - Words - Version 1.97FC - "Download a free Latin-English-Latin dictionary program for your PC or MAC... The dictionary contains over 39000 entries and, through additional word construction with hundreds of prefixes and suffixes, may generate more, leading to many hundreds of thousands of 'words' that can be formed by declension and conjugation. Present emphisis is on classical Latin and late Latin, but medieval Latin entries are increasing. WORDS provides a tool to help in translations for the Latin student and a memory jog for researchers."
William Smith's A Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities.1875. - "This single volume, of 1294 pages in rather fine print set in two columns and amounting to well over a million words, is a treasure trove of information on the ancient world, and was for many years a standard reference work, carried thru several British and American editions from the first in 1842 to the last in 1890-91 with relatively few alterations. It shares one of its selling points with the Web: many illustrations. They are woodcuts, but often rather good ones, and sometimes clearer than photographs could be."
