Here's a link to TWL's hypertext, Carrol, that provides the requisite translation:

Can anyone look up and post a translation of the lines from Ovid quoted (in
Latin) in Eliot's note to TWL 218?

Eliot's comment, "of great anthropological interest," is pretty vague. Ovid,
so far as I know, was at some distance from the 'original' sources of his
material, which makes the anthropological interest of his lines a bit
doubtful.
