[114] τίς πόθεν εἶς ἀνδρῶν; πόθι τοι πόλις ἠδὲ τοκῆες; Od. 1. 170. ‘Qui genus’ is variously corrupted by thinferior MSS. into ‘quod’ or ‘quid genus,’ ‘quo genere.’ The construction is perhaps from the Greek, e. g. Od. 15. 267, ἐξ Ἰθάκης γένος εἰμί. Comp. 5. 285, “Cresa genus Pholoe.” ‘Unde domo’ is a phrase, as in Hor. 1 Ep. 7. 52, “quaere et refe, unde domo, quis, Cuius fortunae.” or Plaut. Cist. 4. 2. 6,haec cistella numquam hinc a nobis domo est,” comp. by Forb., from which we see that the abl. means ‘in respect of domicile.’ For ‘domus’ of place of extraction comp. 10. 141, “Maeonia generose domo,” ib. 183, “Qui Caerete domo.”
