Comp. Geor. ii. 80, Nec longum tempus et . . . exiit . . . arbos, C. But as these are the only two instances of the construction adduced it is perhaps safer to take et = even.
51 nil iam, etc.] The father is making vows to heaven in his son's behalf, but the son is gone where vows are neither made nor paid.
55 haec mea magna fides] 'Is this the end of all my promises ?' Magna may be taken as 'solemn,' or 'boastsul.'
pudendis volneribus] All his wounds are on his breast.
56 dirum optabis funus = morti devovebis. Compare the meaning of dirae, xii. 845.
59-99] A description of the funeral rites. Aeneas bids his last farewell.
59 Haec ubi deflevit] ‘His moan thus made.' De in composition has two opposite meanings : (1) cessation from or removal of the fundamental ideas, as in decresco, dedoceo, etc. ; (2) (as here) in intensifying, as debello, demiror, desaevio.
61 honorem] Honos is used by V. for (1) a sacrifice, iii. 118; (2) a hymn, Geor. ii. 393; (3) beauty, Aen. X. 24; (4) the ‘leafy honours' of trees, Geor. ii. 404 ; (5) funeral rites, vi. 333, and here. See below, l. 76.
63 solatia) In apposition to the whole sentence ; whether it is nom. or acc. depends on how we resolve the principal sentence; here, though solatia applies to the whole sentence, its construction probably depends on the last clause, which we may paraphrase, ut praesentes (TÒ Meteivai) sint solatia ; therefore it is nom.
64 crates et molle feretrum] The hier of pliant osier : cf. l. 22.
μήκων δ' ώς ετέρωσε κάρη βάλεν, ήτ ένι κήπο
Even as a flower,
Languidly raises its encumbered head.'-MILMAN. 69 languentis hyacinthi] The rhythm is Greek. The drooping hyacinth' is probably the Lilium Martagon or Turk’s-cap lily, 'the sanguine flower inscribed with woe.'
70] “That hath not yet lost its gloss nor all its native loveliness.' Recessit must apply to both clauses. “If we suppose the two parts of the line to contain a contrast, the following line will lose much of its force,' C. Compare the well-known lines from the Giaour, 'He who hath bent him o'er the dead,' etc.
71] Contrast the force of neque adhuc, nec dun, and non iam ; "the brightness not all gone,' "the lines where beauty lingers,' and 'the support and nurture of mother earth cut off once and for all.'
36. iva páyn] In modern Greek, which properly speaking has no infinitive, the sense of the infinitive is expressed by vá (iva) with subjunctive (as in this passage), e.g. élOvuc và vpád, 'I wish him to write;' see Corfe's Modern Greek Grammar, p. 78. This extension of the force of iva to oblique petition, and even to consecutive clauses, may be partly due to the influence of the Latin ut; cf. ch. xvi. 27, épwtw oủv, mátep, iva néuyys : see note on ch. iv. 3. . The following incident is recorded by St. Luke alone. Simon the Pharisee is not to be identified with Simon the leper, Matt. xxvi., Mark xiv. 3.
åverlíon] The Jews had adopted the Roman, or rather Greek, fashion of reclining at meals—a sign of advancing luxury and of Hellenism, in which however even the Pharisee acquiesces.
37. yuvn] There is no proof that this woman was Mary Magdalene. But mediæval art has identified the two, and great pictures have almost disarmed argument in this as in other incidents of the gospel narrative.
38. áráßaotpov] The neuter sing. is Hellenistic. The classical form is αλάβαστρος with a heteroclite plural αλάβαστρα, hence probably the late sing. αλάβαστρον. The grammarian stage of a language loves uniformity, Herod. iii. 20; Theocr. xv. 114 :
. Συρίω δε μύρω χρύσει’ αλάβαστρα. στάσα παρά τους πόδας αυτού] This would be possible from the arrangement of the triclinium.
39. évívwo kev äv] Would (all the while) have been recognising.'
40. Xpewbedéral] A late word; the form varies between χρεωφειλέται and χρεοφειλέται.
41. Onvápia] The denarius was a silver coin originally containing ten ases (deni), afterwards, when the weight of the as was reduced, sixteen ases. Its equivalent modern value is reckoned at 7d. But such calculations are misleading; it is more to the point to regard the denarius as an average day's pay for a labourer.
42. un éxóvrwv] Because he saw that thev bad nos éxapícarol Cf. v. 21.
eckoned at whateen ases. Its when the weight alloy
