Among the Virgilian commentators who interpret the verse in the way of Servius, there is also G. Pascoli,
who glosses silvas ‘reflected in water'; also in Alexandros, Pascoli engages with some of the previous
Virgilian reworkings (Stat. silu. I 3,16 ff. and G. Carducci, Alle fonti del Clitumno vv. 77-88) thus adding to
