[26] Nunc scopulus. Some copies have hinc; Vossius reads huic. Helvetius prefers nunc, the common reading; explains it as autem, and observes that it is often used in that sense by some of the best Latin poets, who place a particular elegance in it.

Pendet; mari imminet; hangs over the sea, forms a precipice.

Adesus; Corrosus et cavatus; eaten away, undermined.
