Ciris 80: an emendation


At 66-88 the Ciris recounts several alternative versions of the
origin of the Homeric Scylla. The last one is that Scylla was a
prostitute and was transformed into the sea monster because she
offended Venus (77-88). While the text of the concluding five
lines (84-8) is corrupt almost beyond the point of intelligibility,
the first seven lines of the passage appear generally clear (77-83).
