2. g. by Gronovius and Fantham, explains that Achilles interrupted the progress of the day by a moment of darkness, before re-entering the underworld. It is doubtful, however, whether Sen. would have expressed such an idea with divisit. Baden compared Var. 5 aestivum diem si non diffinderem meo insiticio somno meridie, but diem there refers to the whole day as a unit that can be subdivided, which is not the sense of diem here. Nor is it clear that Achilles in particular has such power over the darkness.

For the poetic use of dividere with an ablative of separation cf. V. Ecl. 66, Prop. 3, Stat. Silv. 54. Zw. objects (1991 119) that 197 taken so would be the result of the actions of 198–99, and could not therefore precede them; but this is excessively logical.
