This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1879 edition. Excerpt: ...a goddess. No more wars for me: take Aeneas your presents: we have cause to know his prowess. Two more such as he, and Greece would have been where Troy is. He and Hector were the bravest: and he the most pious. Make peace, not war'. Such was the answer. 220. super, adverbially, 'moreover'. Venulus and others had been sent (vm. 9) to Argyripa (Arpi) in Apulia, to announce the coming of Aeneas, and ask aid for the Latins against him. The city was founded (acc. to the legend) by Diomede, who, as a hero of the Trojan war, would be likely to give aid against his old enemies the Trojans. 230. petendum. This seems the best supported reading. If so it is the older construction: 'petendum est pacem', which afterwards got by attraction into 'petenda est pax'. Cf. Lucret. I. 112, 'poenas in morte petendum est'. 231. deficit, 'falters', 'his heart fails'. 232. 'that fate, by the gods' plain will, was bringing Aeneas on'. 236. olli, ancient form of illi: compare olim, 'at that time'. fluunt, 'stream, ' plenis viis, 'along the crowded ways' (abl. of place): plenis is probably aproleptic adj., i.e. an adj. which expresses the result of the verb (fiuttnt), and not a permanent quality. The common use of the adj. is e.g. 'a yellow dog', 'a fat cow'. The proleptic use, 'I pressed it flat', 'we drank it dry'. 238. sceptris is perhaps best taken as instrumental. 'First with the sceptre' meaning 'marked by the sceptre as king'. 239. Diomede was Aetolian by birth: (AetoliainN.W. of Greece). 240. referant, subj. of indirect interrogation. 241. Unguis, dat. of recipient, 'their tongues are silenced'. 142. farier, old form of pass. and dep. inf., for fari: the origin of it is disputed. 246. patriae, for Diomede was king of Argos. 247. victor: he joined more
