John Conington, Commentary on Vergil's Aeneid, Volume 2, P. VERGILI MARONIS, line 459 (search)
The Homeric heroes are said to throw their swords round their shoulders, which means that the sword-belt passed over the right shoulder, while the sword itself hung beside the left hip (Dict. A. Balteus). This explains the combination lateri atque humeris here. Evander as an Arcadian has naturally a sword of Tegea: but the commentators have not collected any other passages speaking of Arcadian swords.
