Euboicam. Cumae or Cyme owed its origin to a joint settlement, first upon Aenaria (cf. 89 n.) and subsequently upon the opposite mainland, of colonists from Cyme in Aeolis and Chalcis in Euboea. It derived its name from the former, but recognised the latter as its metropolis, and so is called Euboean or Chalcidian (cf. Virg. Aen.VI. 2 and 17). Tradition placed the foundation of the city a century after the Trojan war, 1050 B.c.

emergit. [Emersit, Can.7 perhaps rightly, as M has emersus. R. E.].
