Transcript NEMEA. " There is a temple of Nemean Jupiter in this place well worthy of inspection, though the roof of it has fallen off, and no statue is left. About the temple there is a grove of cypresses; and they report, that Opheltes, being placed here on the grass by his nurse, was destroyed by a dragon. The Argives sacrifice to Jupiter in Nemea, and choose a priest for Nemean Jupiter. They propose, besides this, a contest of the course to armed men, which is celebrated in the winter. The sepulchre of Opheltes too is in this place, about which there is an inclosure of stones; and there are certain altars within the inclosure, There is also a tomb raised from turf, of Lycurgus the father of Opheltes. The fountain Adrastia is so called, because Adrastus discovered it, or for some other reason. The region, it is said, was denominated from Nemea, the daughter of Asopus. Above Nemea, the mountain Apesas presents itself to the view, in which they report Perseus first sacrificed to Jupiter Apesantius." Paus. Vol. I. 176, 177. st Nemea is more characterised by gloom than most of the places I have seen. The splendour of religious pomp, and the busy animation of Gymnastic and Equestrian exercises, have been succeeded by the dreary vacancy of a death-like solitude." " Ilium nee calido latravit Sirius astro, Nee gravis aspexit Nemees frondentis alumnus." Stat. Silv. 1.3. " Him neither Sirius, with his sultry sign, Nor leafy Nemea's nursling, smote malign." u Tu nubigenas, invicte, bimembres Htflaeumque Pholumque manu, tu Cressia mactas Prodigia, et vastum Nemeae sub rupe 0onem.'' f< VlRG. iEN. VIII. •* The cloud-born monsters of the double form, Thee, hero, felt, and thy resistless arm ; The Cretan portents sank beneath its shock, And that dread lion, couched neath Nemea's rock." J. P.
