[746] Tardata Med. a m. p., Pal., Rom., and Gud., ‘tardante’ Med. a m. s., perhaps a reminiscence of 5. 395, “gelidus tardante senecta Sanguis hebet.” Ribbeck has followed Heyne in reading ‘tardata,’ which Wagn. unnecessarily displaced, for ‘tardante,’ against the balance of authority.

[748] Instat for ‘urguet’ Arusianus p. 238 L. “Fervidus instat” 9. 350., 10. 788.

[749] Serv. comp. Apollonius R. 2. 278 foll., a passage modelled on Il. 10. 360 foll., where the pursuit of Dolon by Diomede and Ulysses is described. Virg. was chiefly thinking of Il. 22. 188 foll., where Achilles is pursuing Hector: Ὡς δ᾽ ὅτε νεβρὸν ὄρεσφι κύων ἐλάφοιο δίηται Ὄρσας ἐξ εὐνῆς &c.; but he has varied the situation by representing Turnus as hemmed in between the marsh and the walls, and adapting the simile accordingly.

[750] “Puniceaeve agitant pavidos formidine pennaeG. 3. 372 note.

[751] Venator canis like “bellator equus” 11. 89. Wagn. well quotes Silius 3. 294, “Ceu pernix cum densa vagis latratibus inplet Venator dumeta Lacon aut exigit Umber” &c. Heyne punctuated ‘venator cursu, canis et latratibus,’ as if ‘venator’ did not go with ‘canis.

[752] Insidiis, the ‘formido;’ ‘ripa,’ the river, ‘et’ being disjunctive, as ‘que’ is in the simile 10. 708 note, “(aper) multos Vesulus quem pinifer annos Defendit, multosque palus Laurentia.

[753] Fugit refugitque like “itque reditque viam totiens” 6. 122. ‘Ac’ for ‘at’ Med. a m. p. The description of the Umbrian dog in Gratius (Cyn. 171) would suit a stag-hound: “At fugit adversos idem quos repperit hostes Umber: quanta fides utinam et sollertia naris, Tanta foret virtus et tantam vellet in armis.” ‘Imber’ Pal., and originally Gud.

[754] “Illum ardens infesto volnere Pyrrhus Insequitur, iam iamque manu tenet et premit hasta” 2. 529. ‘Tenens’ Rom., with one of Ribbeck's cursives.

[755] Increpuit malis, makes his teeth sound as they meet. ‘Increpuitelusus est,’ perf., not aorist.

[756] Βράχε δ᾽ αἰπὰ ῥέεθρα, Ὄχθαι δ᾽ ἀμφὶ περὶ μεγάλ᾽ ἴαχον, Il. 21. 9. “Resultant aedesque lacusque” Lucil. Libr. Inc. 140 (Gerlach), quoted by Cerda. ‘Lacus,’ the pools in the marsh.

[757] “Caelum tonat omne fragore” 9. 541, whence Minoraug. has ‘fragore’ here, with some support from another of Ribbeck's cursives.

[758] Simul fugiens like “simul hoc dicens” 10. 856: perhaps an imitation of the Greek construction of ἅμα with participle.

[759] 759—831 is wanting in Rom. “Nomine quemque vocans” 11. 731. Ἐξονομακλήδην ὀνομάζων ἄνδρα ἕκαστον, Il. 22. 415. ‘Efflagito,’ to demand earnestly (see Forc.).

[760] Varied from Il. 22. 205, Λαοῖσιν δ᾽ ἀνένευε καρήατι δῖος Ἀχιλλεύς, Οὐδ᾽ ἔα ἱέμεναι ἐπὶ Ἕκτορι πικρὰ βέλεμνα.

[761] “Quisquam is used with emphasis in other (than negative) propositions to signify any one whatever, any one in general . . . in conditional and relative propositions, where it is intended to express the condition or relative definition in the most general and comprehensive manner possible” Madv. § 494. 2. b. ‘Trementis,’ trembling already: comp. “ne me terrete timentem” v. 875 below.

[762] ‘Exscissurum’ the MS. known as the Parrhasian: see on “excisa Troia” 2. 637. ‘Se’ is omitted, as in v. 654 above (note), “summasque minatur Deiecturum arces.” ‘Saucius,’ ‘in spite of his wound.’

[763] “Inde alios ineunt cursus aliosque recursus” 5. 583. ‘Retexunt,’ weave over again: so “revolvere iter” 9. 391 of going back on one's steps. With ‘explent cursu’ Gossr. comp. Lucr. 2.323, “Loca cursu Camporum complent.

[764] Ἐπεὶ οὐχ ἱερήϊον οὐδὲ βοείην Ἀρνύσθην, τε ποσσὶν ἀέθλια γίγνεται ἀνδρῶν, Ἀλλὰ περὶ ψυχῆς θέον Ἕκτορος ἱπποδάμοιο, Il. 22. 159 foll. ‘Ludicra:’ “vilia, digna ludo” Serv. “Quasi vero clarorum virorum . . . . esse oporteat ludicros sermones” Cic. Acad. Pr. 2. 2. 6.
