John Conington, Commentary on Vergil's Aeneid, Volume 1, P. VERGILI MARONIS, line 119 (search)
Urbis opus is a singular expression for urbis instar. Stat. Theb. 6. 86 imitates it, calling a funeral pile montis opus, if the reading is certain, and again Silv. 2. 2. 31, Inde per obliquas erepit porticus arces, Urbis opus, which however the commentators explain opus urbe dignum. Gossrau comp. Cic. Verr. 5. 34, Quae (navis) si in praedonum pugna versaretur, urbis instar habere inter illos piraticos myoparones videretur. Cerda comp. 8. 691, of the battle of Actium, pelago credas innare revolsas Cycladas, aut montis concurrere montibus altos, where however see note. Versus of a tier of oars, Livy 23. 30. Virg. has been guilty of an anachronism, as triremes were not invented till the historic period (Thuc. 1. 13), about B.C. 700, at the same time that he must have failed to impress a notion of vastness upon his readers, who had known ships of ten tiers at the battle of Actium, and had heard of others of sixteen, thirty, and even forty. See Dict. A. Ships.
