No translation is given in Benson, nor Wells, nor Vikivortaro. Here is the link to the entry in the free online dictionary of Merriam-Webster: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/reiver

  • Or do you mean raver as a rave dancer? That could be something like rejvulo or -dancanto based on pronunciation. Jan 4 '20 at 14:50

I couldn't find anything either for reive (nor reave), but the word


comes to mind, which with rab/ expresses the looting of cattle or goods and with atak/ the suddenness and violence of it. There are also sereval entries in Tekstaro of forms of this word.

So reiver would be rabatakanto or rabatakisto.
