Tellus extrema refuso Oceano, the farthest land against which Ocean beats, or, from which Ocean is beaten back:—refuso Oceano being taken as an ablative of quality or attributive ablative with tellus. The Ocean, as in Hom., is supposed to encircle the earth, the extremity of which accordingly repels it. For refuso see note on G. 2. 163, Iulia qua ponto longe sonat unda refuso. Virg. had in his mind Britain or Thule, though of course he could not put those names into the mouth of Ilioneus.
