This chapter includes the commentary on books 13 to 15 of Ovid's Metamorphoses. It cites the Pagasae, which was a town on the borders of Magnesia and Thessaly where the Argo was built, and Colchis, which was the destination of the Argonauts. The Tyrrhenian is a Greek word for those called 'Tuscan' or 'Etruscan' by the Romans, which was then given to name the sea between Italy and Sardinia. It also mentions Circe's father, the Sun, who had seen the adultery of Aphrodite (Venus) and Ares (Mars) and had informed her husband Hephaestus (Vulcan). Ovid makes no mention of Croton's death, but he agrees that Hercules had reason to honour him.
