III. WORKS OF OVID. The following list contains all the works usually attributed to Ovid now extant, arranged in the order in which they were composed, in so far as this can be ascertained. Doubts have been entertained with regard to the three last of the series, numbered IX, X, XI, but they are generally received as authentic: I. Heroides.

The pieces rejected are attributed to Aulus Sabinus, a contemporary poet, the author of several epistles in answer to those composed by Ovid, three of which have been preserved, and are frequently appended to complete editions of the works of the latter. We find an allusion to both in Amor. 2. 18,19 ' Quod licet, aut Artes teneri profitemur Amoris, (Hei mini! praeceptis urgeor ipse meis,) Aut, quod Penelopes verbis reddatur Vlyxi, Scribimus; aut lacrimas, Phylli relicta, tuas; Quod Paris, et Macareus, et quod male gratus I'ason, Hippolytique parens, Hippolytusque legant: Quodque tenens strictum Dido miserabilis ensem Dicat, et Aeoliae Lesbis amica lyrae. Quam celer e toto rediit meus orbe Sabinus, Scriptaque diversis rettulit ille locis! Candida Penelope signum cognovit Vlixis: Legit ab Hippolyto scripta noverca suo. lam plus Aeneas miserae rescripsit Elissae: Quodque legat Phyllis, si modo vivit, habet. Tristis ad Hypsipylen abliisone litera venit: Det votam Phoebo Lesbis amata lyram.' II. Amores, ...
