est aliquid, ‘it is no slight thing.’ This phrase, which occurs frequently in Ovid, varies in force like its English equivalent, as may be seen by contrasting Trist. V. i. 59, “est aliquid fatale malum per verba levare”, with Fast.VI. 27, “est aliquid nupsisse Iovi, Iovis esse sororem”, and this passage. Cf. Liv. VI. xli. 2, “est aliquis, qui se inspici, aestimari fastidiat”.
