In a move similar to his suggested revisions to the opening of the Metamorphoses, Ovid suggests at Tr. 33 that his wife could now be placed at the head of the collection of the single Heroides: prima locum sanctas heroidas inter haberes, “you ought to have first place amongst the revered heroines” (Hinds 1999b).
