1 “Achilles slew fifty out of a hundred,” or “a hundred out of fifty.” Translated from a Greek line in Arist. Soph. El. i. 4. (πεντήκοντ᾽ ἀνδρῶν ἑκατὸν λίπε δῖος). Quinquaginta is the object of occidit. Faulty reading might make it go with ubi erant, leaving centum as the object of occidit, and making nonsense of the line.
