This observation takes serious account of modern writing at the Odes.

Such trees were arranged in neat ranks (Cic. sen. 59, Varr. rust. 1. 7. 2, Colum. 3. 13. 5 ‘ordinent vineam paribus intervallis’); ordinent also suits an army on parade (cf.

Theophr. caus. plant. 5. , Plin. nat. hist. 18. 278. Geminus more sensibly points out that the stars simply mark the wet and stormy times of year (åNóƪøªÞ 17. 10): ‰ò óçìåßïı ÷ÜæØí ðÆæåغçììÝíøí ðæeò ôe ðæïªØíþóŒåØí ™ìAò ôaò ðåæd ôeí IÝæÆ ðåæØóôÜóåØò. 32. nunc hiemes iniquas: hiemes means both ‘winters’ and ‘storms’.
