OXFORD EXAMINATION PAPERS.

EXAMINATION IN LIEU OF RESPONSIONS.

I.

For Latin Prose.

So now in the hour of danger the geese heard the sound of the enemy, and they began to cry in their fear and to flap their wings; and Marcus Manlius, whose house was in the Capitol hard by the temple, was aroused by them; and he sprang up and seized sword and shield, and called to his comrades, and ran to the edge of the cliff. And behold a Gaul had just reached the summit, when Marcus rushed upon him and dashed his shield into his face and tumbled him down the rock. The Gaul as he fell bore down those who were mounting behind him; and the rest were dismayed, and dropped their arms to cling more closely to the rock, and so the Romans, who had been roused by the call of Marcus, slaughtered them easily, and the Capitol was saved.
