Question
Quis hic locus, quae regio, quae mundi plaga

Answer
Hello,

“Quis hic locus, quae regio, quae mundi plaga?”, which in the Latin text has a question mark,  means:”
"What place is this, what region, what area  of the world?" .
It is a quotation from Seneca's Hercules Furens (The Mad Hercules), Act 5, line 1138 , where Hercules is wondering where he is and just  says :”Quis hic locus, quae regio, quae mundi plaga ?
Best regards,
Maria
