[76] Peregrino amore. Penelope here only intimates the suspicions that were sometimes apt to rise in her mind As she was ignorant of what had happened to Ulysses since his departure from Troy, we can in no wise suppose that she alludes here to Calypso and Circe, as some have injudiciously imagined. A later tradition says that Ulysses and Circe had a son, Telegonus, and that Ulysses and Calypso had a son, Auso, from whom Italy received the name Ausonia.
