FOR C.BATHURST, J. BUCKLAND, W.STRAHAN, J. RIVING-
Ovid, having told how Theseus had freed Athens from
the tribute of children, zubich was imposed on them by Minos king of Creta, by killing the Minotaur, here makes a digresion to the story of Meleager and Atalanta, jubich is one of the most inartificial conneftions 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 necessities ; and, anongj 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.
