quis locus. For this adjectival use of quis see R. § 207, Madv. § 88, obs. 1, and cf. X. 651, “docuique quis usus in illis”, Virg. Georg.II. 178, “quis color”, Hor. C. I. xxix, “puer quis ex aula”, ib. II. i. 29, “quis non Latino sanguine pinguior campus?” The distinction seems to be that quis simply asks for identification, qui for description and characterisation also. See Reid on Lael. VI. § 22, and cf. de Or. II. viii. § 34.

Phthiam, sc. to Peleus.
