RUBERE
pro eximie candere. Vide infra Rutilare. Apud Senecam, Hippolytô, v. 788. ubi de Luna,
Et nuper rubuit ———
indigitatur Veterum superstitio, qui Lunam magicô carmine sollicitatam rubore suffundi existimârunt, vel ob magarum imprudentiam et scelera; vel laborantem, vi carminis. Horat. l. 1. Sat. 8. v. 35.
———— ———— Lunamque rubentem, Ne foret his testis post magna latere sepulchra.
Sed et in defectu idem illi as veneficiis evenire putabant; qua in re tam superstitiosi Athenienses, ut eos, qui veram eclipseos cansam afferebant, vivos exusserint, teste Plut. in Pericle, ubi hanc in rem multa. Meminit eiusdem ruboris Papinius, l. 1. Theb. v. 105.
——— qualis per nubila Phoebet
Atraciâ rubet arte labor ———
Tuendae igitur Lunae, quosdam tinnitum dedisse, alios clangorem tubarum adhibuisse, nonnullos copisô fletu Lunam prosequi solitos, legimus apud Auctores passim. Vide quoque infra voce Tinnitus, it. Vince Luna.
