curvata, like tortilis in 915, is of the sweeping curves of the shape of fish.

novissima, ‘at their extremity,’ R. § 521. Cf. Ibis, 181 (of Tityos), “iugeribusque novem qui distat summus ab imo”. For the ablative pisce the nearest parallels I have found are Virg. G. I. 180,neu pulvere victa fatiscat”, Liv. XXVI. 4,ad proximum ostium Rhodani (pluribus enim divisus amnis in mare decurrit) castra locat”.
