Definition of egregious:
I was astonished that a high functionary, of thirty- three years' experience in these countries, should have committed such an act of egregious indiscretion, exposing the life of a fellow countryman to such increased danger, who was already without any kind of guaranteed protection.- "Travels in the Great Desert of Sahara, in the Years of 1845 and 1846", James Richardson.
