non impune feres. This phrase, which seems not to be noticed in Lewis and Short, is something like our ‘to carry it off.’ Cf. XI. 207, XII. 265, VIII. 494, (without a negative) ergo impune feret. But it is also found with the ordinary sense of permitting or enduring, as in VIII. 279, at non impune feremus, quaeque inhonoratae, non et dicemur inultae. Cf. Ellis on Cat. LXXVII. 9, XCIX. 3, and Key, Lat. Dict. s.v. aufero 11.

reddere, fut. pass.

Canenti. The repetition in the same position is effective.
