[616] Iubebatur indicere bella implies a constitutional monarchy like that of legendary Rome, in which the king was the first magistrate, and made peace and war by consent of the Comitia Curiata and Senate (see Lewis 1. p. 415), an idea which is not sustained throughout. Latinus makes a covenant with the Trojans on his own authority v. 266, and he is called “tyrannus” v. 342.
