[711] The Nile is represented G. 3. 38 on the doors of the temple which Virg. speaks of erecting: there however the representation seems to be of the actual river, like those which were carried in triumphal processions, here of the river god. ‘Contra’ facing Cleopatra in the picture of the rout. ‘Magno corpore’ with ‘Nilum,’ perhaps hardly with ‘maerentem.
