[753] “Turbamque sonantem” 12. 248. See on v. 709 above.

[754] “Tumulum capit” 12. 562. ‘Posset’ is restored by Wagn. from Med., Pal., Rom., and others for ‘possit,’ which has the support of fragm. Vat., and Gud. Either might stand in point of grammar (Madv. § 382, obs. 3), nor can much be made of the external evidence, as the words are constantly confounded in MSS. (Madv. Emendationes Livianae, p. 302, Munro pref. to Lucretius, p. vi.). The MSS. of Nonius s. v. ‘legere’ have ‘possent.

[755] Neither Forc. nor Freund quotes any other instance of this use of ‘legere,’ which however differs from that of reading only as the object of the latter is more restricted. Our word ‘to scan’ appears to express it exactly. ‘Perlegere’ has occurred in a similar sense above v. 34.

[756-787] ‘Anchises shows Aeneas the long train of Alban kings, his future descendants, ending in Romulus, the founder of Rome.’
