yS<> NUMISMATA
MINERVA ILIAS
CUM
CANE TEMPLI CUSTODE

Se sistit. Minervam Uiada, inquit ARCH/EOPHILUS, non negavero; Con-
stat enim ab Ilio ejus Simulacrum aDiomede ablatum fuisse. Ita & Roma? eam
hoc nomine cultam, ex Strabone docemur. An autem Canes templi custodes
habuerit, de eo valde dubito. Canis potius ad Dianam speftare videtur, aut
si mavis ad Lares, aut ad ^Esculapium, aut Sylvanum; His enim Canem jungi,
Antiquorum suffragiis constat; Quis autem unquam Minerva? eum addixit ?
Nonne potiiis Dex tam procax animal displicuisse credam ? cum ex PJutarcho
constet,Canem ab arce Atheniensi ideo fuisse rejeftum,quod iri propatulo coiret.
Hoc opinioni mea?, regessit DULODORUS, contrariari non videtur;
Idem enim etiam de DeJo, insula Diana? sacra, memorat Plutarchus, cui tamen
Canes nemo negaverit: Scilicet ipso Cheronensi docente, non propter Numen
arcebanturCanes,sed propter suppJices,nonubique,sed in Asylis. Csteriimde
Cane, Minerva: IJiadis apud Romanos custode, fateor apertum testimonium me
hactenus hon observasse. CiimautemCanesMinerva? &Uiacai& Achaica; templa
alibi custodivisse, ex idoneis Authoribus conflet; idemque animal inproposito
Romanorum Numismate occurrat, & insuper Romanos ab Uio descendere ne-
minem lateat, haud arbitror abs ratione opinioni mea? inhresero. De Miner-
va Uiade observatCadiusRhodiginus Lib. XXIII. c. 30. Caterum, inquit, & in
Daulia ejje memorant lliados Minerva templum,in quo alanturCanes, quibus in-
jitum planejit, perinde ac ratione qutidam adventantihm abblandiri Gracis, Bar-
baros autem, ubije ojlentarint, latratu infeBari. De Minerva Achsea testatur
