[127] Theseus nisi nomine. The poet artfully makes Oenone speak with diffidence, and as if uncertain of the name. But though she brings out one at a venture, it proves to be right. Theseus, as we learn from Apollodorus and Hyginus, carried off Helen, when she was yet very young, but restored her, untouched, to her brothers Castor and Pollux.
