Webster's 1913 Dictionary 

 Definition:  
\Pi\ (p[imac]), n. [Gr. pi^.]
1. A Greek letter ([Pi], [pi]) corresponding to the Roman
letter {P}.
2. Specif.: (Math.) The letter [Pi], [pi], as used to denote
the number or quotient approximately expressing the ratio
of the circumference of a circle to its diameter; also,
the quotient or the ratio itself. The value of the
quotient pi, to eight decimal places, is 3.14159265. The
quotient pi cannot be expressed as a root of an algebraic
equation; and from this fact follows the impossibility of
the quadrature of the circle by purely algebraic
processes, or by the aid of a ruler and compass.
\Pi\, n. [See {Pica}, {Pie} magpie, servicebook.] (Print.)

and disarrange the type of; as, to pi a form. [Written also
{pie}.]
