Ou. Met. 5.417

The author argues that the reading of the manuscripts of Ovid’s Metamorphoses is no sufficient reason to postulate the existence of the alternative spelling of the name of Anapus, a river in Sicily, viz. Anapis, as all the modern editors of the Metamorphoses do. All the adduced parallels are weak. A Renaissance conjecture Anapus is to be printed in Ou. Met. 5.417, perhaps first attested in the 14th cent. MS Laurentianus Plut. 36.17.
