Silvanus, a god presiding over rural life generally, arvorum pecorisque deus ( Virg. Aen.VIII. 601), tutor finium ( Hor. Ep.II. 22). Cf. Virg. Ecl.X. 24: “venit et agresti capitis Silvanus honore, florentis ferulas et grandia lilia quassans.”

641. [poterentur Can.1 potirentur Can.7 Bod. M. As Can.1 is an early MS. this is a signal proof of its importance. It has not admitted an error which has infected even the excellent M and the always considerable Bod., as well as Can.7 R. E.].

sed enim, ‘but for sure.’ Cf. xiii.141 n.
