If in Moria's phrase e Trophonii specu reversi may be heard not only 'come from' the cave, as translations have had it,43 but 'turned around' or 'reversed' from the cave, she refers to the initiatory ritual. 44 From those cavernous depths sprang Lethe, from which the mystic drank to forgetfulness, to make Mnemosune's oracular draught unforgettable. 47 Lethe will figure importantly in the unravelling of Moria's secret.
