[103] Altera coniux; a suspicion very common among women, when they find themselves in any degree slighted. Penelope, in the preceding letter (1.75 ff), suspects the same cause for her husband's absence. Ovid was a great master in the art of love, and writes as if the case of those who are supposed to dictate each letter had been his own.
