[361] Sequi may have the sense of ‘petere;’ in other words it may be used of seeking a stationary object. “Si spes erit, Epirum, sin minus, Cyzicum aut aliud quid sequemur” Cic. Att. 3. 16. Here however the word is probably chosen to express the difficulty of finding Italy, which seems to retire as he advances, as in 5. 629 (comp. 3. 496., 6. 61), “Italiam sequimur fugientem.” Comp. also Dido's words in Ov. Her. 7. 10,Quaeque ubi sint nescis, Itala regna sequi.
