TRANSLATE two passages, — I. and either II. or III. Answer all the questions,
I. Pauca tamen suberunt prisca 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

Mutabit merces : omnis feret omnia tellus. ECL. IV.
II. Postera iamque dies primo surgebat Eoo,

Humentemque Aurora polo dimoverat umbram :
Cum subito silvis, macie confecta suprema,
Ignoti nova forma viri miserandaque cultu
Procedit supplexque manus ad litora tendit.
Respicimus. Dira inluvies inmissaque barba,
Consertum tegumen spinis; at cetera Graius,
Et quondam patriis ad Troiam missus in armis. - Æn. III.

. III. Primus equum phaleris insignem victor habeto,

Alter Amazoniam pharetram plenamque sagittis
Threiciis, lato quam circumplectitur auro
Balteus, et tereti subnectit fibula gemma;
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. 1. Give a brief summary of the events in Æneid IV.

2. Divide into feet, marking quantities and ictus (or verse accent), the fifth line in I.

3. How does the metre help to determine the meaning of the fifth line in II. ?
