‘Mucroni’ Pal. originally, Rom.: ‘Mucrone’ Med., Pal. corrected, Gud., and two other of Ribbeck's cursives: and so Serv. and Priscian (1199, 1205). ‘Sese mucrone induat’ = throw himself upon his sword. Virg. has used the abl. where a prose writer would have used the dat. or “in” with acc. In Caesar B. G. 7. 73, “sese ipsi acutissimis vallis induebant” (Pierius) the subst. is probably in the dat.: so ib. 83, Ov. 2 Am. 10. 31 (Forb.).
