    Webster's unabridged doesn't know everything either, but it knew this:

    Main Entry:auctor
    Pronunciation:**k*t*(*)r, *a*k-
    Function:noun
    Inflected Form:plural auctors \-rz\ ; also auctores \**t**r*z\
    Etymology:Latin, author * more at AUTHOR

    : the author or source (as a vendor or assignor) of a right or title : PRINCIPAL

    :wink:
