Note to Anon Pl 19VII

[All]: The description of the fate of Plácitus’ wife comes earlier in the narrative sequence in both Pl and the C text of the saga than in the Lat. and A text (Louis-Jensen 1998, cxxiii). This restructuring has the effect of increasing the dramatic tension concerning Theopista’s suffering at the hands of her captor.
