CONNECTION to the former STORY.
Ovid, having told how Theseus had freed Athens from
the tribute of children, which was imposed on them by Minos king of Creta, by killing the Minotaur, here makes a digression to the story of Meleager and Atalanta, zubich is one of the most inartificial connections in all the Metamorphoses : for he only says, that Theseus obtained such honour from that combat, that all Greece had recourse to him in their necessities; and, amongst others, Calydon ; though the hero of that country, prince Meleager, was then living.
FROM him, the Caledonians fought relief;
Though valiant Meleagrus was their chief.
Beginning from the rural Gods, his hand
part he churns, and part befoams the ground.
