[35] Pudor deiecit ocellos; the usual effect of shame; a description that all poets agree in giving of it. Virg. aen. lib. 3, says, “Andromache
Dejecit vultum, et demissa voce locuta est.

In like manner Statius, Theb. 2; “Candida purpureum fusae super ora ruborem,
Dejectaeque genas; tacite subit ille supremus
Virginitatis amor, primaeque modestia culpae
Confundit vultus.
