1 The bold accusative (Styga) in this passage, —which the Oxford editor is inclined to emend,—is probably to be explained as modelled on the Virgilian ‘Itque reditque viam’ (Aen. vi. 122), just as the ‘eadem dea turbida’ of Thebaid, ii. 208, at which so many critics ride a tilt, is a mere reminiscence of Virgil's ‘Eddem impia Fama’ (Aen. iv. 298). Statius is full of such reminiscences as these.
