carmine fix vivax virtus...Correct fix to fit (carmine fit vivax virtus...). The mistake persists in the Digital Loeb Classical Library, as this screen capture shows:
By verse virtue lives on...
The first edition (1924) is correct here (I checked the 1939 reprint), and the error crept in with Goold's revision. Oddly, the same mistake occurs in Eton Selections from Ovid and Tibullus. Electa ex Ovidio et Tibullo, ed. William Gifford Cookesley (Eton: E.P. Williams, 1860), p. 204.
