[449] εἴδωλον (‘idol’): a wraith. — Vergil amplifies: tum dea nube cava tenuem sine viribus umbram| in faciem Aeneae — visu mirabile monstrum —| Dardaniis ornat telis clipeumque iubasque| divini adsimulat capitis, dat inania verba,| dat sine mente sonum gressusque effingit euntis:| morte obita qualis fama est volitare figuras| aut quae sopitos deludunt somnia sensus.| at primas laeta ante acies exultat imago Aen. x. 636 ff.
