The great bulk of MSS. give adversi, aversi being apparently only found in two or three inferior copies, including MS. Ball. Serv. and the earlier commentators, reading adversi, understood tergum of the shield, with reference to which they also explained fisso ligno: but though tergum might perhaps stand for a shield (see on 10. 718, Serv. on 11. 619), tergum Sulmonis could hardly mean the shield of Sulmo. Aversus and adversus are confused in MSS., which on a matter like this are not more authoritative than on a question of orthography. Serv. regards this as one of the insoluble passages in Virg. (see on v. 364).
