This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1910 edition. Excerpt: ...Cr. Ap. 86. This verse is quoted by Cic. Ep. Ad. Fam. 7. 10. 4; cf. And. 319, Plaut. Ps. 19. 87. qua: by attraction for quam; cf. Hor. Serm. 1. 6. 15 iudice, quo nosti, populo. 88. rastros: a toothed hoe or rake. A neuter plural rastra is also found, though rarely. 89. adpone: put down; cf. And. 725, Plaut. Poen. 857; deponere is the common verb with this meaning. 90. vocivom, not vacivom, is the reading of A, and this is the only occurrence of the word in the Mss. of Terence (it is read by editors in And. 706). Vocivos is found, however, in Plautus and in inscriptions of 123 and 45 B.c. (C. I. L. 1. 198. 77, 206. 93). These forms became the later vacuus. That va was often pronounced as vo is shown by such a pun as that in Plaut. Cas. 527 on vacare ' to be empty' and vocare 'to call': Fac habeant linguam tuae aedes. Al. Quid ita? Ly. Quoin veniam, vocent. 92. hos: sc. rastros.--meritum: substantive. 93. nunc: Chremes has taken away his rake. 94. Cf. Plaut. Bud. 1321 Miserum istuc verbum et pessumumst 'habuisse et nil habere.'1 96. Corintho: perhaps the most licentious city in Greece, and proverbial as a resort of courtesans. Aphrodite was its patron 97. amare coepit perdite: cf. Ph. 82 hancamare coepit perdite.--perdite: desperately. 98. Cf. Cr. Ap. 110. istuc aetatis: colloquial; so Plaut. Mil. 618; cf. Mil. 659 illuc aetatis, As. 71 id aetatis, Amph. 154 hoc noctis. Istuc has the final syllable long as in Ad. 386. 111. in Asiam: i.e. Asia Minor. This was one of the wars among the successors of Alexander the Great (Siddoxoi), who were constantly fighting among themselves over the empire they had divided; cf. v. 117. 112. belli: loc. gen. Belli in this construction is usually found contrasted with domi, but it is used alone also in Cic. Bep. 2....show more
