previous next

ab his, ‘next after these,’ a common expression in Ovid Cf. III. 273, IV. 329 and 612, IX. 764, VI. 63 ab imbre, Liv.xxii. XL. 4, “ab hoc sermone profectum Paullum tradunt”, id. XLIV. xxxiv. 6, “ab his praeceptis contionem dimisit”, id. VII. ii. 8 (where the idea of abandoning is prominent) “qui ab saturis ausus est primus argumento fabulam serere”. With this temporal sense is easily combined the idea of causation, of which many examples occur in Livy, as I. i. 4 and 5, II. lxv. 7, “iam inde ab infelici pugna castrisque amissis ceciderant animi”, V. xliv. 6, “ab secundis rebus magis etiam solito incauti”. For the same use in Propertius see Hertzberg, Quaest. Propert. p. 134. Cf. 105 n.

regnata. Cf. 713 n.

vati Phrygio, Helenus. Cf. 99 n. The visit to Buthrotum is given at great length by Virgil, Aen.III. 294-505.
