Original Text

Arcadum Carmina: Pars Prior. Rome: Antonius de Rubeis, 1721, p. 68.


Ad eandem.

Astra quid ostentas Coelum1 Vestigia Virgo       Imprimit en astris lucidiora tuis.

1 Coelum is a vocative here, and quid indicates that this is a question. Coelum also ends this phrase; vestigia is the direct object of imprimit and is modified by lucidiora in the second line.
