Aeneid is in Virgil.

Aeneid is a Latin epic poem, written by Virgil between 29 and 19 BC that tells the legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who fled the fall of Troy and travelled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans.

It is widely considered Virgil's finest work, and is regarded as one of the most important poems in the history of Western literature

Virgil's Aeneid Book 1 Lines 198-207

"O socii-neque enim ignari sumus ante malorum-

O passi graviora, dabit deus his quoque finem.

Vos et Scyllaeam rabiem penitusque sonantis

accestis scopulos, vos et Cyclopea saxa

experti: revocate animos, maestumque timorem

mittite: forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit.

Per varios casus, per tot discrimina rerum

tendimus in Latium; sedes ubi fata quietas

ostendunt; illic fas regna resurgere Troiae.

Durate, et vosmet rebus servate secundis."

Theodore C. Williams, 1910.

"Companions mine, we have not failed to feel

calamity till now. O, ye have borne

far heavier sorrow: Jove will make an end

also of this. Ye sailed a course hard by

infuriate Scylla's howling cliffs and caves.

Ye knew the Cyclops' crags. Lift up your hearts!

No more complaint and fear! It well may be

some happier hour will find this memory fair.

Through chance and change and hazard without end,

our goal is Latium; where our destinies

beckon to blest abodes, and have ordained

that Troy shall rise new-born! Have patience all!

And bide expectantly that golden day."

John Dryden ...

"Endure, and conquer! Jove will soon dispose

To future good our past and present woes.

With me, the rocks of Scylla you have tried;

th' inhuman Cyclops and his den defied.

What greater ills hereafter can you bear?

Resume your courage and dismiss your care,

An hour will come, with pleasure to relate

Your sorrows past, as benefits of Fate.

Thro' various hazards and events, we move

To Latium and the realms foredoom'd by Jove.

Call'd to the seat (the promise of the skies)

Where Trojan kingdoms once again may rise,

Endure the hardships of your present state;

Live, and reserve yourselves for better fate."

Ecce autem gemini a Tenedo tranquilla per alta— horresco referens—immensis orbibus angues incumbunt pelago, pariterque ad litora tendunt; [205] pectora quorum inter fluctus arrecta iubaeque sanguineae superant undas; pars cetera pontum pone legit, sinuatque immensa volumine terga. Fit sonitus spumante salo; iamque arva tenebant ardentisque oculos suffecti sanguine et igni, [210] sibila lambebant linguis vibrantibus ora. Diffugimus visu exsangues: illi agmine certo Laocoönta petunt; et primum parva duorum corpora natorum serpens amplexus uterque implicat, et miseros morsu depascitur artus; [215] post ipsum auxilio subeuntem ac tela ferentem corripiunt, spirisque ligant ingentibus; et iam bis medium amplexi, bis collo squamea circum terga dati, superant capite et cervicibus altis.

Look now, from Tenedos across the tranquil deep, (I shudder recalling it) with huge coils twin snakes are breasting the sea and are making for the shore together. Their breasts [are] raised up among the waves and their blood-red crests are towering over the waves, the remaining part skims over the sea behind and arches their back with a huge coil. A sound is made as the salt sea surges; and now they are reaching the fields, and, their burning eyes flecked with blood and with fire they are licking their hissing mouths with flickering tongues. We scattered, pale at the sight. They, in a straight line, made for Laocoon; and first, each serpent having embraced the small bodies of his two sons, twined round them, and fed on their wretched limbs with a bite. Next, they seized upon him, himself, coming up with help and bringing weapons and bound him with huge coils; and now having coiled twice round the middle, twice having surrounded his neck with their scaly backs they towered over him by a head and lofty necks.

'Cuncta equidem tibi, rex, fuerit quodcumque, fatebor vera,' inquit; 'neque me Argolica de gente negabo; hoc primum; nec, si miserum fortuna Sinonem finxit, vanum etiam mendacemque improba finget.'

"O king, I'll tell you the whole truth, whatever happens, and indeed I'll not deny that I'm of Argive birth: this first of all: if Fortune has made me wretched, she'll not also wrongly make me false and a liar."

Fando aliquod si forte tuas pervenit ad auris Belidae nomen Palamedis et incluta fama gloria, quem falsa sub proditione Pelasgi insontem infando indicio, quia bella vetabat demiscere neci, nunc cassum lumine lugent.

If by any chance some mention of Palamedes's name has reached your ears, son of Belus, and talk of his glorious fame, he whom the Pelasgians, on false charges of treason, by atrocious perjury, because he opposed the war, sent innocent to his death, and who they mourn, now he's taken from the light.

Illi me comitem et consanguinitate propinquum pauper in arma pater primis huc misit ab annis.

Well my father, being poor, sent me here to the war when I was young, as his friend, as we were blood relatives.

Dum stabat regno incolumis regumque vigebat conciliis, et nos aliquod nomenque decusque gessimus.

While Palamades was safe in power, and prospered in the kings' council, I also had some name and respect.

Invidia postquam pellacis Ulixi (haud ignota loquor) superis concessit ab oris, adflictus vitam in tenebris luctuque trahebam et casum insontis mecum indignabar amici.

But when he passed from this world above, through the jealousy of plausible Ulysses (the tale's not unknown) I was ruined, and spent my life in obscurity and grief, inwardly angry at the fate of my innocent friend.

Roman Books, Virgil, Aeneid Book 2 Lines 387-391

Atque hic successu exsultans animisque Coroebus,

“O socii, qua prima” inquit “fortuna salutis

monstrat iter, quoque ostendit se dextra, sequamur

mutemus clipeos, Danaumque insignia nobis

aptemus: dolus an virtus, quis in hoste requirat?

And here Coroebus, exulting in success and with spirited mind, says,

'O comrades, wherever the first fortune of safety points out the way,

and wherever the right hand shows itself, let us follow.

Let us change our shields, and let us take the insignia of the Greeks:

who would seek for trickery or courage in an enemy?'

Aeneid Book 8 Lines 306-336

Exim se cuncti divinis rebus ad urbem

perfectis referunt. Ibat rex obsitus aevo

et comitem Aenean iuxta natumque tenebat

ingrediens varioque viam sermone levabat.

miratur facilisque oculos fert omnia circum

Aeneas capiturque locis et singula laetus

exquiritque auditque virum monimenta priorum.

Tum rex Euandrus, Romanae conditor arcis:

"Haec nemora indigenae fauni nymphaeque tenebant

gensque virum truncis et duro robore nata,

quis neque mos neque cultus erat, nec iungere tauros

aut componere opes norant aut parcere parto,

sed rami atque asper victu venatus alebat.

Primus ab aetherio venit Saturnus Olympo,

arma Iovis fugiens et regnis exsul ademptis.

Is genus indocile ac dispersum montibus altis

composuit legesque dedit Latiumque vocari

maluit, his quoniam latuisset tutis in oris.

Aurea quae perhibent illo sub rege fuere

saecula. Sic placida populos in pace regebat,

deterior donec paulatim ac decolor aetas

et belli rabies et amor successit habendi.

Tum manus Ausonia et gentes venere Sicanae,

saepius et nomen posuit Saturnia tellus;

tum reges asperque immani corpore Thybris,

a quo post Itali fluvium cognomine Thybrim

diximus, amisit verum vetus Albula nomen;

me pulsum patria pelagique extrema sequentem

Fortuna omnipotens et ineluctabile fatum

his posuere locis matrisque egere tremenda

Carmentis nymphae monita et deus auctor Apollo.

Theodore C. Williams, 1910

Such worship o'er, all take the homeward way

back to the town. The hospitable King,

though bowed with weight of years, kept at his side

Aeneas and his son, and as they fared,

with various discourse beguiled the way.

Aeneas scanned with quick-admiring eyes

the region wide, and lingered with delight

now here, now there, inquiring eagerly

of each proud monument of heroes gone.

Then King Evander, he who builded first

On Palatine, spoke thus: "These groves erewhile

their native nymphs and fauns enjoyed, with men

from trees engendered and stout heart of oak.

Nor laws nor arts they knew; nor how to tame

burls to the yoke, nor fill great barns with store

and hoard the gathered grain; but rudely fared

on wild fruits and such food as hunters find.

Then Saturn from Olympian realms came down,

in flight from Jove's dread arms, his sceptre lost,

and he an exiled King. That savage race

he gathered from the mountain slopes; and gave

wise laws and statutes; so that latent land

was Latium, 'hid land', where he hid so long.

The golden centuries by legends told

were under that good King, whose equal sway

untroubled peace to all his peoples gave.

But after slow decline arrived an age

degenerate and of a darker hue,

prone to insensate war and greed of gain.

Then came Sicanian and Ausonian tribes,

and oft the land of Saturn lost its name.

New chieftains rose, and Thybris, giant King

and violent, from whom th' Italians named

the flooding Tiber, which was called no more

the Albula, its true and ancient style.

Myself, in exile from my fatherland

sailing uncharted seas, was guided here

by all-disposing Chance and iron laws

of Destiny. With prophecy severe

Carmentis, my nymph-mother, thrust me on,

warned by Apollo's word."

John Dryden

The rites perform'd, the cheerful train retire.

Betwixt young Pallas and his aged sire,

The Trojan pass'd, the city to survey,

And pleasing talk beguil'd the tedious way.

The stranger cast around his curious eyes,

New objects viewing still, with new surprise;

With greedy joy enquires of various things,

And acts and monuments of ancient kings.

Then thus the founder of the Roman tow'rs:

"These woods were first the seat of sylvan pow'rs,

Of Nymphs and Fauns, and salvage men, who took

Their birth from trunks of trees and stubborn oak.

Nor laws they knew, nor manners, nor the care

Of lab'ring oxen, or the shining share,

Nor arts of gain, nor what they gain'd to spare.

Their exercise the chase; the running flood

Supplied their thirst, the trees supplied their food.

Then Saturn came, who fled the pow'r of Jove,

Robb'd of his realms, and banish'd from above.

The men, dispers'd on hills, to towns he brought,

And laws ordain'd, and civil customs taught,

And Latium call'd the land where safe he lay

From his unduteous son, and his usurping sway.

With his mild empire, peace and plenty came;

And hence the golden times deriv'd their name.

A more degenerate and discolor'd age

Succeeded this, with avarice and rage.

Th' Ausonians then, and bold Sicanians came;

And Saturn's empire often chang'd the name.

Then kings, gigantic Tybris, and the rest,

With arbitrary sway the land oppress'd:

For Tiber's flood was Albula before,

Till, from the tyrant's fate, his name it bore.

I last arriv'd, driv'n from my native home

By fortune's pow'r, and fate's resistless doom.

Long toss'd on seas, I sought this happy land,

Warn'd by my mother nymph, and call'd by Heav'n's command."

Roman Books, Virgil's Aeneid Book 8 Lines 310-312

310 miratur facilisque oculos fert omnia circum Aeneas, capiturque locis et singula laetus exquiritque auditque virum monumenta priorum.

Admiring, Aeneas turned his ready eyes all around, seized by the sights, he joyfully took in each and every one of the legacies of the men of old.

[685] Ac veluti montis saxum de vertice praeceps

cum ruit avulsum vento, seu turbidus imber

proluit aut annis solvit sublapsa vetustas;

fertur in abruptum magno mons improbus actu

exsultatque solo, silvas armenta virosque

involvens secum: disiecta per agmina Turnus

[690] sic urbis ruit ad muros, ubi plurima fuso

sanguine terra madet striduntque hastilibus aurae,

significatque manu et magno simul incipit ore:

And as when a rock falls headlong from a mountain peak,

Torn off by the wind, or by a swirling rainstorm,

Or when old age undermines it and the years dissolve it,

The mountain plunges with a mighty force into the abyss,

And leaps exulting on the plain, carrying with it woods,

Herds, and men together; scattered through the ranks,

Turnus rushes thus toward the city walls, where the ground

Is soaked with abundant blood poured out, and the air resounds

With clashing spears; he signals with his hand and at the same time

Begins to speak with a loud voice:

Avebury by William Stukeley. 1724. This Longstone cove [Map], vulgarly called long stones, is properly a cove, as the old Britons called 'em, composed of three stones, like that most magnificent one we described, in the center of the northern temple at Abury; behind the inn. They are set upon the ark of a circle, regarding each other with an obtuse angle. This is set on the north side of the avenue; one of the stones of that side makes the back of the cove. This is the only particularity in which this avenue differs from the former. I take it to be chiefly a judicious affectation of variety, and served as a sacellum or proseucha to the neighbourhood on ordinary days of devotion, viz. the sabbath-days. For if the Druids came hither in Abraham's time, and were disciples of his, as it appears to me; we cannot doubt of their observance of the sabbath. It stands on the midway of the length of the avenue, being the fiftieth stone. This opens to the south-east, as that of the northern temple to the north-east. 'Tis placed upon an eminence, the highest ground which the avenue passes over: these are called Longstone-fields from it. You have a good prospect hence, seeing Abury toward which the ground descends to the brook: Overton-hill, Silbury, Bekamton; and a fine country all around. Many stones by the way are just buried under the surface of the earth. Many lie in the balks and meres, and many fragments are removed, to make boundaries for the fields; but more whole ones have been burnt to build withal, within every body's memory. One stone still remains standing, near Longstone cove.

Longstone cove, because standing in the open fields, between the Caln road and that to the Bath, is more talked of by the people of this country, than the larger, and more numerous in Abury town. Dr. Musgrave mentions it in his Belgium Britannicum, page 44. and in his map thereof.

Mr. Aubury in his manuscript observations published with Mr. Camden's Britannia, speaks of them by the name of the Devil's coits. Three huge stones then standing. It was really a grand and noble work. The stone left standing is 16 feet high, as many broad, 3½ thick. The back stone is fallen flat on the ground, of like dimension.
