[113] Hoc tua; Cassandra the sister of Paris. Apollo loved her; and, when she had promised to yield to his desires, he conferred upon her the gift of prophecy. But finding himself afterwards deluded, and unable to recall what he had once granted, he rendered the gift ineffectual, by adding this to it, that no credit should be given to her prophecies. Oenone now reflects upon that fatality, by which she was so far blinded, as not to hearken to her predictions.
