CYCLOPES
CYCLOPES
Neptuni et Amphitrites filii, ministri autem Vulcani, sic dicti, quod unicum haberent oculum, enmque orbicularem media in fronte situm. Hi, teste Hesiodô, in Theog. v. 142.
----- Τὰ μὲν ἄλλα θεοῖς εναλίγκιοι ἠ̈σαν,
Μοῦνος δ᾿ ὀφθαλμὸς μέςςῳ ενέκειτο μετώπῳ
Κύκλωπες δ᾿ ὄνομ᾿ ὴ̈ςαν ἐπώνυμον, οὕνεκ᾿ ἄρα σφέων
Κυκλοτερὴς ὀφθαλμὸς ἕεις ενέκειτο μετώπῳ.
Ex his tres potissimtim a Poetis celebrantur, Brontes, a tonitru dictus, Steropes a fulmine; Pyracmon ab ignea incude. Virg. l. 8. Aen. v. 424.
Ferrum exercebant vasto Cyclopes in antro
Brontesque, Steropesque, et nudus membra Pyracmon.
Ovid. l. 4. Fast. v. 287.
Hinc mare Trinacrium, candens ubi fingere ferrum
Brontes, et Steropes, Acmonidesque solent.
Stat. l. 1. Sylv. 1. v. 3.
----- Siculis an conformata caminis
Effigies, lassum Steropen, Brontemque reliquit?
Claudian. de 3. Honorii Consulatu, v. 191.
----- Vobis iam Muliciber arma
Praeparat, et Siculâ Cyclops incude laborat.
Brontes innumeris exasperat agida signis:
Altum fulmineâ crispare in casside conum,
Festinat Steropes, nectit thoraca Pyracmon,
Ignifluisque gemit Lipare sumosa cavernis.
Fabulae occasionem dedit, quod primi Siciliae incolae gigantaeâ staturâ horribiles, unde defunctorum ossa saepe inusitatae magnitudinis eruta, et saevi, circa etnam, habitârint. Nic. Lloydius. Vide Hesiod. in Theog. Natal. Com. l. 9. c. 8. Thucyd. l. 1. Iustin. l. 4. c. 1. Leand. descript. Italiae.
