FOR C.BATHURST, J. BUCKLAND, W.STRAHAN, J. RIVING-
Out of the EIGHTH Book of
CONNECTION to the former STORY.
Ovid, having told how Theseus bad freed Athens from
the tribute of children, ruhich was imposed on them by Minos king of Creta, by killing the Minotaur, here makes a digreffion to the story of Meleager and Ata. lanta, zubich is one of the most inartificial, connations in all the Metamorphoses : for be only says, that Theseus obtained such honour from that combat, that all Greece had recourse to him in their necesities; and, amongst others, Calydon ; though the hero of that country, prince Meleager, was then living.
ROM him, the Caledonians fought relief;
Though valiant Meleagrus was their chief.
