APPENDIX C
D ISJUNCTIONS OF
D EMONSTRATIVES IN
AUGUSTAN POETRY

I have collected in this APPENDIX a series of cases of disjunction involving demonstratives, from a representative corpus of Latin poetical texts (Lucretius, Catullus, Horace, Vergil, Ovid, Lucan, Manilius, Senecan traged y, Valerius Flaccus, Statius, Silius, Martial, Juvenal), through database-assisted word-searching (using PHI 5.3). The examples are intendedto test the linguistic plausibility of the conjecture proposed by Zwierlein at Oct. 262–3, illos soluto crine, succincta anguibus, | ultrix Erinys uenit ad Stygios toros, where illos replaces the MS illo.

I shall start with a list of all occurrences of prepositional constructions of the types ill- … ad, ill- … in and ill- … a (b) in this or in the reverse ord er, with or without intervening word s, out of a total of over 5,500 cases of ille in the corpus of texts searched.

ill[o/a/u]-…ad (=illos…ad, illa…ad, illas ad, etc.), 1 case:

Ov. Fast. 2.323 armillas non illa ad bracchia factas

ad… ill[o/a/u]- 4 cases:

Ov. Pont. 4.9.3 missaque (sc. salus)d i faciant Auroram occurrat ad illam

Sen. H. O. 1706–7 sed ire ad illos umbra quos uici deos, | pater, erubesco,

Juv. 8.167–9 Lateranus ad illos | thermarum calices inscriptaque lintea uad it | maturus bello

Juv. 14.84–5 progenies festinat ad illam | quam primum praed am rupto gustauerat ouo

ill[o/a/i]-…in (=illo…in, illis…in, illas…in, etc.), 6 cases:

Verg. Aen. 1.140 illa se iactet in aula

Ov. Rem. 789–90 illo Lotophagos, illo Sirenas in antro | esse puta

Ov. Met. 14.176 aut tumulo aut certe non illa cond ar in aluo

Sen. H. O. 128 illo Thessalicus pastor in oppid o…

Stat. Silu. 1.3.74 illa recubat Tiburnus in umbra

Juv. 4.93 his armis illa quoque tutus in aula

in… ill[o/a/u/i]- (=in… illo, in… illam, in… illis etc.), 54 cases (exclud ing here cases of ill- used pronominally), of which I give a selection:

Ov. Her. 18.197 optabo tamen ut partis expellar in illas

Ars 1.175 quis non inuenit turba quod amaret in illa

Met. 2.332 aliquisque malo fuit usus in illo

Met. 5.428–9 quarum fuerat magnum mod o numen, in illas | extenuatur aquas

Met. 9.109–10 'officio'que 'meo ripa sistetur in illa | haec' ait 'Alcid e. tu uiribus utere nand o'

Met. 9.297–8 subsed it in illa | ante fores ara

Met. 14.233–4 ind e Lami ueterem Laestrygonis' inquit 'in urbem | uenimus. Antiphates terra regnabat in illa'

Fasti 6.297 ignis inextinctus templo celatur in illo

Pont. 3.2.41–2 forte senex quid am, coetu cum staret in illo, | red didit ad nostros talia uerba sonos
