Subject:        Venus and Adonis Query

I believe the two lines of Latin poetry that are printed above the
Dedication to Southampton on the title page of Venus and Adonis, come
from one of Ovid's poems. Judy Craig (SHS. 11.0707 Sonnet 20) gives
their translation as 'Let base conceited wits admire vile things; fair
Phoebus lead me to the Muses springs. ' Can some kind soul tell me where
in Ovid's works these lines are found?

My thanks,
Rainbow
