[10] Thesea; a Greek accusative. Theseus was the son of Aegeus king of Athens.

Prensuras semisupina manus. Some copies have semisopita; but the other is the preferable reading, as it prevents tautology. It is moreover a phrase by no means unusual with our poet. Thus we find,

Purpureo jacuit semisupina thoro;


Cum jacet in dextrum semisupina latus.
