Aeolon. Cf. 86 n. Ovid combines the Virgilian account of Aeolus as the divine gaoler of the winds ( Aen.I. 52-63, cf. I. 262-4 Aen., IV. 663), who keeps them imprisoned in a mountain cave, with the Homeric ( Od.X. 1-27), in which he is the human “ταμίας ἀνέμων”, who can help Ulysses driven to his island by raising a west wind and giving him the other winds tied in a skin.

Tusco profundo, ‘in the Tuscan sea,’ the Mare Tyrrhenum. Profundum is frequently so used; cf. V. 439 (of Proserpine), omnibus est terris, omni quaesita profundo.
