‘With oars and sails.’ “Vento petere” 2. 25. “Ventis remisque” or “velis remisque” is a regular phrase for ‘using every effort.’ “Ventis, remis in patriam omni festinatione properavi,” Cic. Fam. 12. 25. “Res . . . . omni contentione, velis, ut ita dicam, remisque fugienda,” Id. Tusc. 3. 11. These passages may lend some support to the original reading of Med., ‘ventis remisque:’ Plaut. Asin. 1. 3. 5 however has “Remigio veloque, quantum potis es, festina et fuge.”
