In their editions of Servius’ commentary ad Aen. 7, 490 (which includes Virgil’s description of Silvia’s pet stag) both Thilo and Ramires kept the reading dominum, here to be interpreted as synonymous with erus. An alternative understanding of the text, in which dominum is replaced with hominum, was suggested by Rabbow and accepted by Friedrich in his entry erus for the ThlL. Despite having been neglected by later scholarship, this suggestion seems compelling insofar as it accounts for the nouitas of the phrase, beside being attested by two important Servian codices. A further confirmation is provided by Servius himself in another passage of his commentary (ad Aen. 7, 278), where the same phrase non nisi hominum is referred to monilia.
