John Conington, Commentary on Vergil's Aeneid, Volume 2, P. VERGILI MARONIS, line 36-65 (search)
The river-god assures him that he has found a home, promises him the appearance of a white sow by way of confirmation, advises him to apply at once for help to a neighbouring colony from Arcadia under Evander, and enjoins him to propitiate Juno.

Virg., as Heyne remarks, has imitated the reminiscences of the Homeric heroes, e. g. Il. 3. 205 foll., where Antenor recollects having entertained Menelaus and Ulysses. Dido's recollection 1. 619 foll. is of the same kind. Anchises was connected with Arcadia in legend, his tomb being shown at Mount Anchisia near Orchomenos, Pausanias 8. 12. Hesione was married to Telamon. Hesionae, which is virtually the reading of Pal., Rom., and Med., was restored by Heins. for Hesiones. Visentem on his way to see. Forb. comp. Catull. 11. 9 foll., Sive trans altas gradietur Alpes Caesaris visens monumenta magni.

Gossrau states, but without citing his authority, that Anchises was honoured in Arcadia and elsewhere as the patron of horses. If this is so, Virg. may have alluded to it here, as perhaps in 3. 470, 537. The separation of aurea from frena can hardly be ascribed to any other cause than poetical variety and metrical convenience, though there may be some force in the epithet in its present position as showing the store which Pallas set by the gift. Gossrau is wrong in saying that frena bina aurea would have been non satis Latinum: but it is true nevertheless that the Augustan poets seem generally to avoid connecting an epithet with a substantive that has any other adjunct. See on G. 2. 147.

Called after the Parrhasian (Arcadian) custom the place of Lycaean Pan, i. e. dedicated to Pan, the god of Arcadia, and called by his Lycaean name, Lupercal being supposed to be connected with lupus as Lycaeus with lu/kos. Panos is the possessive gen., and dictus seems to include the two notions of naming and dedicating, for which see on 6. 138. Schrader conj. monte, which is actually found in two inferior MSS., and supported by Ov. F. 2. 421, Quid vetat Arcadio dictos de monte Lupercos? Fauns Lycaeus with lu/kos. Panos is the possessive gen., and dictus seems to include the two notions of naming and dedicating, for which see on 6. 138. Schrader conj. monte, which is actually found in two inferior MSS., and supported by Ov. F. 2. 421, Quid vetat Arcadio dictos de monte Lupercos? Faunus in Arcadia templa Lycaeus habet. Panos, the Greek gen., seems to be found in all the MSS. Parrhasius is applied to Evander 11. 31, the name of the town Parrhasia being put for the whole of Arcadia.
