[18] Ut caderet, &c. This verse is thus explained by Helvetius. Ut Jason, qui tanquam agricola dentes serpentis in terram misisset, ab hostibus armalis, qui ex illo semine nascerentur, interficere-

tur: 'Till Jason, who had cast the serpent's teeth into the ground, after the manner of a sower, should perish by the armed enemies who sprang from the seed thus sown.'
