[140] Quamlibet iralis ipse dat arma dolor. This is the most approved reading, though others think that we ought to have quaelibet instead of quamlibet. Dolor, in this verse, signifies indignation, or a resentment of wrongs: for the Lemnian wives had been slighted by their husbands, who, going to the wars of Thrace, brought home with them, at their return, women from that country.
