1. 1. 35, Lucr. 2. 47, Prop. 1. 1. 37, Fraenkel 24. dolor was widely used of unhealthy mental and spiritual states, including anxiety, cf. Varro, Men. 36, Lucr. 4. 1067, Cic. Tusc. 3. , 4. 23 ff. Phrygius lapis was a white marble with purple markings; cf. Strab. 12. 8. 14, Stat. silv. 1. 5. 37 f. ‘(purpura) cavo Phrygiae quam Synnados antro / ipse cruentavit maculis lucentibus Attis’, Juv. 14. 307 with Courtney, D.

119. 7 ‘numquam parum est quod satis est’. As H’s countryman is assumed (not wholly realistically) to have quod satis est, he does not need to worry about survival. Ancient moralists of various schools preach on this text; cf. Epic. fr. 473 Usener ¼ V 68 Bailey ˇPäbí ƒŒÆíeí ﬁøﬄ Oºßªïí ôe ƒŒÆíüí, G. A. , Krenkel on Lucil. 205 ff. (¼ 203 ff. M). desidero, like the English ‘want’, can mean either ‘desire’ or ‘need’; here it has to mean the former. 25–6. neque / tumultuosum sollicitat mare: though H professes to be talking of the contented man, he goes on to give two vignettes of the opposite, as so often in the Satires.
Et> / post equitem sedet atra Cura: et has negligible authority (cf. Fraenkel 317 n. 5), but the two weak line-endings well convey unremitting pursuit (N–H on 2. 6. 2); Bentley less plausibly proposed postque equitem. RN, following Barwick, thinks that H is referring to a military review, as with the parallel turmas equitum at 2. 16. 22 (quoted in the previous note); as in that passage, the point would be that Care keeps up with a display of power and speed (for a possible reference to the equestrian Maecenas see the introduction above).
