nostrum sinum: Note how deposuit is placed in “nostrum sinum” just like Cerinthus in Sulpicia's “sinus”. Is “sinus” more likely to be literal or figurative here? The usual constructions would be “in sinu deponere” or “ad sinum adferre”; since Sulpicia has both verbs in this sentence, she compromises on “in sinum”. Nostrum refers to Sulpicia alone.
