& The o in cupressifero is not cut off, although the ensuing

Erymantho begins with a vowel. This frequently happens, if the word which begins with the vowel, be of Greek extraction; because in Greek verses, vowels are not dropt in scauning, unless they are omitted with an apostrophe. This hiatus, or retaining the vowel, how, ever, sometimes occurs, though the following word be purely Latin; as, in Virgil, Eclog. iii, 6,

Et succus pecori, et lac subducitur agnis." And in both the above examples, it is to be observed that the vowel retained is long; in the latter instance, the vowels are generally intercepted by a stop or pause in the reading. If this pause be a period, or colon, it sometimes prevents even a short vowel from being cut off, as Virg. Ecl. ii, 53. Addam cerea pruna: honos erit huic quoque pomo." And Æn. i, 405.

Et vera incessu patuit dea: ille ubi matrem.” Both these readings however are susceptible of alteration by inserting et in the former, and at in the latter.
