[237] Pal., Gud., and another of Ribbeck's cursives have ‘procubuere,’ as in v. 190, Gud. however giving ‘conticuere’ as a variant. In v. 190 however the fact of silence is mentioned immediately afterwards. Virg. is fond of repeating himself partially, and here he also thought of 2. 252, “fusi per moenia Teucri Contienere.” Heins. retained ‘procubuere.’ ‘Insidiis’ with ‘locum:’ comp. Sall. Jug. 50,uti locum castris antecaperet.
