Concubuere, quia toro Aencam vidimus acéumbentem : quin et altera ratio, fcil. conticuere et ora tenebant, tautologice di&um. In manuscripto perquam rariffimo in patris museo legitur, òre gemebant; sed magis ingeniose quam vere. Satur Aeneas, quippe qui jamjam a prandio surtexit: pater nihil ad rem.

11. VER. 3
İnfandum, Regina, jubes renovare dolorem.

Infantum, Regina, jubes renovare dolorem. Sie häud dubito veterrimis codicibus fcriptum fuiffe : quod fatis conftat ex perantiqua illa Britannorum cantilena vocata Chevy-Chace, cujus autor hunc locum fibi afo civit in haec verba,

111. VER. 4.
Trojanas ut opes, et lamentabile regnuiti
Eruerint Danai.
Trojanas ut oves, et lamentabile regnum

Diruerini Mallem oves potius quam opes, quoniam in antiquiffimis illis temporibus oves et armenta divitiae regum fuere, Vel fortasse oves Päridis innuit, qua's super Idam fuperrime pafcebat, et jam in vindictam pro Helenae raptu a Menelao, Ajace, (vid. Hor. Sat. ii. 3-] aliisque ducibus, merito occisas.

IV. VER. 5
Quaeque ipfe miserrima vidi,

Quaeque ipse miserrimus audi, Et quorum pars magra fui. Omnia tam audita quam visa re&ta diftin&tione enarrare hic Acneas profitetur: multa, quorum nox ea fatalis sola confcia fuit, vir probus et pius tanquam visa referre non potuit,

V. VER. 74

Quis talia fando
Temperet a lacrymis ?

Quis talia flendo
Temperet in lacrymis ?
Major enim doloris indicatio, abfque modo lacrymare,
quam folummodo a lacrymis non temperare.

VI. VERi 9.
Ét jam nox humida coelo
Praecipitat, suadentque cadentia fidera fomnos.

Et jam nox lumina coelo
Praecipitat, suadentque latentia fidera fomnos.
Le&tio, humida, vespertinum rorem folum innuere vide-
tur. magis mî arridet lumina, quae latentia poftquam
praecipitantur, Aurorae adventum annunciant.

Sed fi tantus amor casus cognoscere noftros,
Et breviter Trojae fupremum audire laborem.
Sed fi tantus amor curas cognoscere noctis,

Et breve ter Trojae fuperümque audire labores.
Curae noclis (scilicet noctis excidii Trojani) magis com-
pendiose (vel, ut dixit ipfe, breviter) totam belli catastro-
phen denotat, quam diffusa illa et indeterminata le&tio,
casus noftros. Ter audire gratum fuisse Didoni patet ex
libro quarto, ubi dicitur, Iliacosque iterum demens audire
labores exposcit : Ter enim pro faepe usurpatur. Trojae, sua
perümque labores, recte, quia non tantum homines fed et
Dii fefe his laboribus immiscuerunt. Vide Aen, ii. ver.

Quamquam animus meminiffe horret, luctuque refugit,
Incipiam.
Quamquam animus meminiffe horret, luctusque resurgit.

Refurgit multo proprius dolorem renafcentem notat, quam, ut hactenus, refugit.

VII. VER. 13.
Frasti bello, satisque repulfi
Ductores Danaûm, tot jam labentibus annis,
Instar montis Equum, divina Palladis arte,
Aedificant

Tracti bello, fatifque repulfi. Tracti et repulsi, Antithesis perpulchra! Fracti frigido et vulgariter.

Equum jam Trojanum (ut vulgus loquitur) adeamus; quem fi Equam Graecam vocabis, lector, minime pecces; folae enim femellae utero geftant. Uterumque armato milite complent - Uteroque recuso Infonuere cavas-Atque atero fonitum quater arma dedere-Inclufos utero Danaos, etc. Vox foeta non convenit maribus-Scandit fatalis machina mut OS. Focta armis-Palladem virginem, equo mari fabricando invigilare decuiffe, quis putet ? Incredibile

prorfus! quamobrem exiftimo veram equae le&tionem paffim reftituendam, nisi ubi forte, metri caussa, equum potius quam equam, genus pro fexu, dixit Maro. Vale! dum haec paucula corriges, majus opus moveo.
