1 Conway, R. S., On the delicacy of Vergil's diction, a paper read to the Cambridge Philological Society on Thursday, II May, 1933, as recorded by Cambridge University Reporter, 30 May, 1933. The illumination of this subtle question is owed to the late Professor Conway's unique understanding of Vergil.
