Oranti: comp. 10. 96, “Talibus orabat Iuno.” This use of the word (nearly i. q. “loqui”) appears to be an archaism. See Plaut. Most. 3. 1. 152. The etymology is doubtless from “os,” as Freund remarks. As usual, some MSS. have ‘subito.’ Heins. introduced ‘subitos’ from a correction in Mentel. pr., but this would not be in Virg.'s manner. “Tremor occupat artus” 11. 424.
