Saluete omnes, I just started reading some Roman poetry this semester, but it’s been a few months since I did any scansion and I’m a bit confused about one thing. I read that a final -us is usually short by nature. So in the following examples, both taken from Propertius 1.3, are the -us syllables both short? Before I reviewed that page I had been marking them as long. Cynthia non certis nixa caput manibus hac Amor, hac Liber, durus uterque deus Thanks for any help.
