Pauca tamen suberunt priscæ vestigia fraudis,

Quæ temptare Thetim ratibus, quæ cingere muris
Oppida, quæ iubeant telluri infindere sulcos.
Alter erit tum Tiphys, et altera quæ vehat Argo
Delectos heroas; erunt etiam altera bella,
Atque iterum ad Troiam magnus mittetur Achilles.
Hinc, ubi iam firmata virum te fecerit ætas,
Cedet et ipse mari vector, nec nautica pinus

Postera iamque dies primo surgebat Eoo,
Humentemque Aurora polo dimoverat umbram :
Cum subito e silvis, macie confecta suprema,
Ignoti nova forma viri miserandaque cultu
Procedit supplexque manus ad litora tendit.

III. Primus equum phaleris insignem victor habeto,
Alter Amazoniam pharetram plenamque sagittis

Tertius Argolica hac galea contentus abito.
Hæc ubi dicta, locum capiunt, signoque repente
Corripiunt spatia audito, limenque relinquunt,


Effusi nimbo similes, simul ultima signant. -ÆN. V.
