[123] Qui me coiere, querentes. Some read in me, after qui: others, me cupiere, or petiere. But the common reading is the best, if we omit the preposition in, upon the authority of the best copies. The construction is, querentes me praeposuisse, 'complaining that I have preferred,' &c. Coire has, in this passage, the same signification with convenire; as in book VIII. of the Metamorphoses. “Lecta manus juvenum, coiere cupidine laudis.
