Ovid apparently makes the Trojans pass the strait; cf. XV. 706, evincitque fretum Siculique angusta Pelori, of the voyage through the strait of the ship bearing the sacred serpent of Aesculapius. In Virgil by the advice of Helenus ( Aen.III. 412) they adopt the course round Sicily (ib. 686, 715). Here also is introduced by Virgil the death of Anchises at Drepanum.
