Richardson (1977) offers the more literal interpretation ‘with countenance uplifted’; although he qualifies “with the head thrown back the attitude characteristic of one singing a loud song to the cithara”. Fedeli (2005) suggests without explanation that the expression defines the attitude of the epic poet from the viewpoint of love. Neither mention Propertius’ usually downcast expression.
