Et nobis: we too have our story of divine deliverance to tell, as well as others. But possibly it may be, as he was aided by Vulcan, we were helped by Hercules. ‘Optantibus,’ praying for it: comp. 9. 6, “quod optanti divom promittere nemo Auderet, volvenda dies, en, attulit ultro.” ‘Aliquando’ may either mean ‘in our time,’ like ‘et nobis,’ or it may have nearly the force of “tandem,” as in Cic. ad Quint. 13. 43, “Sero, verum aliquando tamen.” For this latter sense Mr. Long refers to Cic. De Sen. 26, Sall. C. 52.
