A Palaeographical Corruption in Ovid, Ex Ponto 4.6

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  11 February 2009

Mark Akrigg


In lines 35–8 Ovid compliments the poem's recipient Brutus on his skill as a forensic orator. The transmitted text is as follows:

hostibus eueniat quam sis uiolentus in armis

sentire et linguae tela subire tuae,

quae tibi tam tenui cura limantur ut omnes

istius ingenium corporis esse negent.
