E. T. Merrill, Commentary on Catullus (ed. E. T. Merrill), Poem 7 (search)
Libya, called Cyrenaica, that bordered upon the Syrtis major. It was founded, according to tradition, about the middle of the seventh century B.C., by Battus, otherwise called Aristotle, a Greek from the island of Thera, and attained great reputation as a centre of trade, and as the birthplace of Eratosthenes, Aristippus, and Callimachus. oraclum Iovis: the Egyptian deity Ammon, or Hammon, originally worshipped in Thebes under the form of a ram, or of a human figure with a ram's horns, had his most famous temple and oracle in the oasis of Siwah in the Libyan desert, 400 miles from Cyrene (Plin. l.c.). He was identified by the Greeks and Romans with Zeus and Jupiter; cf. Prop. 4.1.103 hoc neque harenosum Libyae Iovis explicat antrum. aestuosi: of glowing heat, as in Catul. 46.5

simply ‘Cretan’; cf. v. 172 Gnosia litora. nam perhibent: the poet drops the thread of his story for a moment to relate the circumstances that led to the present condition of Ariadne; cf. v. 2 n. dicuntur. Androgeoneae caedis: Androgeos, son of Minos and Pasiphae, conquered all his competitors at wrestling in Athens, and was through jealousy assassinated while on his way to the games at Thebes. According to another story, King Aegeus himself caused his death by sending him against the fire-breathing Marathonian bull. Minos thereupon besieged the Athenians, who were compelled to yield to him by a pestilence sent by the gods, and to accept his hard conditions of peace. electos: cf. v. 4 lecti iuvenes. The number is commonly given as seven of each sex (as also, perhaps, in Verg. A. 6.20ff.).

esh grief of the writer carries him away from his theme into an apostrophe to his dead brother. vita amabilior: cf. Catul. 64.215n. Daulias: so the transformed Philomela (Ov. Met. 6.424 ff.) was called, according to Thuc. 2.29, from Daulis, the town of Phocis, where Tereus lived; Homer, however (Hom. Od. 19.518 ff.), represents Itylus as the only son of Zethus, king of Thebes, by Aedon, daughter of Pandareus, king of Crete, and slain unwittingly by his own mother, who was jealous of the motherhood of Niobe, and supposed herself to be killinig Niobe's eldest son. sed tamen: after the long parenthesis the poet returns to his theme, sed, as often, being resumptive. haec: probably Catul. 66.1ff. is referred to. expressa: translated; cf.
