« Prev Neptune. Next »

X.—Neptune.

Ye make Neptune a god descended from Saturn; and he wields a trident that he may spear the fishes.  It is plain by his being thus provided that he is a sea-god.  Did not he himself with Apollo raise up walls for the Trojans?  How did that poor stone-mason become a god?  Did not he beget the cyclops-monster?  And was he himself when dead unable to live again, though his structure admitted of this?18441844    We have changed marhus et into mortuus, and de suo into denuo.  Thus begotten, he begot who was already once dead.
