John Conington, Commentary on Vergil's Aeneid, Volume 2, P. VERGILI MARONIS, line 475 (search)
Comp. qa/rsos plh=se fre/nas, Il. 17. 573. Macrob. Sat. 5. 17 and others have objected to the incident of the stag as too trivial, as if there were anything unnatural in a small spark causing a large train to explode, or as if the contrast itself were not an element of greatness. Heyne suggests that Virg. may have thought of Soph.'s story of Agamemnon and the stag at Aulis.
