Ante annos: Gossrau comp. Ov. A. A. 1. 184, “Caesaribus virtus contigit ante diem. Ingenium caeleste suis velocius annis Surgit.” ‘Animum gerens virilem’ is from the lines quoted Cic. Off. 1. 18, “Vos etenim, iuvenes, animum geritis muliebrem, Illa virago viri,” where, as here, ‘gerere’ may indicate that the character is not natural: see on 1. 315. ‘Curam gerere’ for “curare” occurs 12. 48.
