Identify the meaning of the prefix underlined in the word mutilate?

The word 'mutilate', meaning to permanently damage or severely injure, isn't formed using a prefix. The word begins with the Latin root 'mutil-' (see below), but this isn't identified as a prefix in English, although it forms the beginning of words, usually related to 'mutilate', in other languages, notably Italian and Spanish.The modern English word 'mutilate', first recorded in the 1530s relating to things (including animals) and in the 1560s relating to people, can be traced back to the Latin 'mutilare' (to cut, or lop, off), from 'mutilus' (maimed).There is a suffix involved: '-ate', indicating, as a verb suffix, to 'act, cause, make, and so on', from the Latin, '-are' as in 'mutilare', above.The English term, 'mutilation', from late Latin, dates back to the 1700s.
