  • The next, but tho’ the next, yet far disjoin’d, Came Salius, and Euryalus behind; Then Helymus, whom young Diores plied, Step after step, and almost side by side, His shoulders pressing; and, in longer space, Had won, or left at least a dubious race.
  • Swift she descends, alighting on the plain, Where the fierce foes a dubious fight maintain.
  • So, when the sun by day, or moon by night, Strike on the polish’d brass their trembling light, The glitt’ring species here and there divide, And cast their dubious beams from side to side; Now on the walls, now on the pavement play, And to the ceiling flash the glaring day.

  • There are no more uses of "dubious" in the book.
