patriae, ‘of their city.’ The meaning of the word is frequently thus restricted; ‘fatherland’ is too large a term. Cf. V. 652, “patria est clarae mihi, dixit, Athenae”, Liv.i. 18, “cremata patria”, id. IV. ii. 13, “minari se proditurum patriam, oppugnari atque capi passurum”, Cic. de Legg. II. ii. 5.
