There is another, son of Corybas, and native of Crete, for which island he is said to have contended with Jupiter himself. A third, who came from the regions of the Hyperborei to Delphi, is the son of the third Jupiter and of Latona. A fourth was of Arcadia, whom the Arcadians called Nomio, because they regarded him as their legislator. There are likewise many Dianas.
This will correspond to our saying that hell is paved with good intentions. An averia carrucae capta in vetito nomio sint irreplegibilia. We can well understand how even the devil might be puzzled by such questions. Professor Brander Matthews aptly calls this story “diabolically philosophical.” The modern devil is an accomplished gentleman. He is the most all-round being in creation.
