reddidit . . . votis. [Constantius of Fano seems substantially right in explaining (In Ovidii Metamm. Assumenta 1508) bene voventibus bona vovisse Circen, ‘replied to our (good) wishes with presages of good luck.’ Yet as omina is slightly forced in this sense, and omnia is found in Can.7 and other good MSS., I should prefer to retain this, and explain ‘replied (responded) to our good wishes by wishing us all the same,’ or perhaps in a more general sense ‘met our wishes with complete accord.’ R.E. ]
