[253] Cursu petere of a speedy journey 1. 157., 2. 399, E. 6. 80. ‘It is for Italy that you are crowding all sail.’ As Donatus remarks, Celaeno shows them that she knows the present, that they may believe her prophecy of the future. ‘Vocatis’ is understood by Wagn. ‘duly invoked,’ and therefore favourable. Perhaps the sense rather is ‘the winds shall come at your call,’ as if any stress were laid on due invocation, Celaeno would be inadvertently giving profitable advice where she intends only to terrify. Comp. 5. 211., 8. 707, where the words recur, and see on 4. 223.
