arva in its strict sense of ‘ploughed land’ would be inappropriate, but the word, though it kept that sense, as in Hor. Epp.I. xvi. 2, was also used generally, as in I. 598 of woodland. Cf. Hom. Od.IX. 107: “θεοῖσι πεποιθότες ἀθανάτοισιν οὔτε φυτεύουσιν χερσὶν φυτὸν οὔτ᾽ ἀρόωσιν, ἀλλὰ τάγ᾽ ἄσπαρτα καὶ ἀνήροτα πάντα φύονται.
