[341] Aeneadae includes the Romans, Lucr. 1.1; indeed they must have been the chief burden of the prophecy, as the connexion of Troy with Pallanteum really began with the foundation of Rome. ‘Nobile Pallanteum’ probably refers not only to the glories of the place under Evander and his successors, but to those of the Palatine in more historical times. Rom. has ‘nomine,’ and ‘nobine’ is the reading of Pal. and (originally) Gud.
