[4] Priamus; the son of Laomedon, and king of Troy at the time of the Grecian expedition.

Tanti totaque Troia fuit. Commentators differ as to the meaning of this passage. The most general opinion will have it thus: Tota iactura, quam Priamus caeterique Troiani acceperunt, non fait tanti, quanti mea, quod te marito ob bellum Trojanum carui. The reader will see, however, that I have given a different turn to it in the translation.
