ABORIGINES


ABORIGINES
ABORIGINES
Italiae populi qui in Siculotum agros successerunt, Nomen eorum unde originem coeperit, ostendere voluit Festus Pompeius his verbis: Aborigines appellati sunt, quod errantes convenerint in agrum, qui nunc est populi Romani; fuit enim gens antiqussima Italiae. Eandem, simulque duas alias adferthuius vocabuli originationes Dionys. Halicarn. l. 1. c. 10. Aborigines, inquit, auctores, conditoresque Romani generis, Italiae indigenas; alii sui corporig gentem adserunt, nomenque zis impositumesse, διὰ τὸ γεοέςεως τοῖς μεἰ αν᾿τοὺς ἄρξαι, i. e. quod posteris suis orginis ab se furerint auctores. Aliimalunt, errones quosdam incertis vagantes sedibus, et e multis regionibus canvenas, forte fortunâ in sis locis iunxisse inter se coptets, etc. Hitorquent vocabulum ad conditionem hominum istorum. Α᾿βεῤῥιγῖνας λέγονιες, ὥςε δηλοῦαρ τοὺς πλάνητα???, i. e. quasiat erroribus vocantes Aberrigines. Priman erymologiam Virg. inavere videtur Aen. l. 7. v. 177. in his:
Quin etiam veterum effigies ex ordine avorum
Antiqua ex cedro, Italusque paterque Sabinus
Saturnusque senex, Ianique bifrontis imago
Vestibulo adstabant, aliique ab origine Reges.
Ubi Servius, Ab origine reges pro Aboriginum reges, sed est metrô prohibitus. Tertiam originationem tradit idem Dinysius aliquanto post, his verbis; κληθην̑αι δ᾿ ο ἴομαι Α'βοριγῖνας εὐιὸ τῆς ἐν τοῖς ὄρεςιν οἰκήςεως. Quam etiam Virg, firmare videtur Aen. l. 8. v. 321. ubi de Saturno,
Is genus indocile, ac dispersum montibus altis
Composuit, legesque dedit. ------
