simulata Troia, ‘mimic Troy’ (King), with its Simois, Xanthus, Scaean gate and Pergama, Virg. Aen.III. 302 and 349. With the same feeling Aeneas had named his settlements in Thrace (ib. 18) and Crete (ib. 133). Notice that simulata means ‘made in a likeness,’ as in Virg. Aen.III. 349, “simulataque magnis Pergama”. Cf. XIV. 765 n., Shakespeare, Hamlet, III. iv. 54, ‘the counterfeit presentment of two brothers,’ Milton P.l. II. 510, ‘with pomp supreme and godlike imitated state.’ Cf. similar uses of mentior, as XI. 253.

tenetur. Cf. 706 n.
