Not illustrated. 1857 edition. Excerpt: ...victrices catervas Conjuge me Jovis et sorore. "Ter si resurgat murus aeneus 65 Auctore Phoebo, ter pereat meis Exeisus Argivis; ter uxor Capta virum puerosque ploret.'--Non hoc jocosae conveniet lyrae: Quo Musa tendis? Desine pervicax 70 Referre sermones deorum et Magna modis tenuare parvis. CARMEN IV. AD CALLIOPEN.
