tormenti. This simile is used also in VIII. 357, utque volat moles adducto concita nervo, IX. 217 (where Hercules hurls Lichas into the sea), terque quaterque rotatum mittit in Euboicas tormento fortius undas. It is taken from Virgil Aen.XI. 615, excussus Aconteus fulminis in morem aut tormento ponderis acti, ib. XII. 921 (of Aeneas hurling his spear) murali concita nunquam tormento sic saxa fremunt nec fulmine tanti dissultant crepitus.
