The name of the giant who was supposed to be placed under Aetna was variously given in the legends. Pindar l. c. and Aesch. Prom. 354 make it Typhocus or Typhon, Callim. in Del. 143 Briareus. In A. 9. 716, following (though misinterpreting) Hom., Virg. places Typhoeus under Inarime or Pithecusa. ‘Semustum’ is found here in most of the MSS., including Med., which has the same form in 11. 200. See on v. 244.
