P. Vergilius Maro, Aeneid (ed. Theodore C. Williams), Book 3, line 692 (search)
Off the Sicilian shore an island lies, wave-washed Plemmyrium, called in olden days Ortygia; here Alpheus, river-god, from Elis flowed by secret sluice, they say, beneath the sea, and mingles at thy mouth, fair Arethusa! with Sicilian waves. Our voices hailed the great gods of the land with reverent prayer; then skirted we the shore, where smooth Helorus floods the fruitful plain. Under Pachynus' beetling precipice we kept our course; then Camarina rose in distant view, firm-seated evermore by Fate's decree; and that far-spreading vale of Gela, with the name of power it takes from its wide river; and, uptowering far, the ramparts of proud Acragas appeared, where fiery steeds were bred in days of old. Borne by the winds, along thy coast I fled, Selinus, green with palm! and past the shore of Lilybaeum with its treacherous reef; till at the last the port of Drepanum received me to its melancholy strand. Here, woe is me I outworn by stormful seas, my sire, sole comfort of my grievous doom

I saw Salmoneus his dread stripes endure, Who dared to counterfeit Olympian thunder And Jove's own fire. In chariot of four steeds, Brandishing torches, he triumphant rode Through throngs of Greeks, o'er Elis' sacred way, Demanding worship as a god. 0 fool! To mock the storm's inimitable flash— With crash of hoofs and roll of brazen wheel! But mightiest Jove from rampart of thick cloud Hurled his own shaft, no flickering, mortal flame, And in vast whirl of tempest laid him low. Next unto these, on Tityos I looked, Child of old Earth, whose womb all creatures bears: Stretched o'er nine roods he lies; a vulture huge Tears with hooked beak at his immortal side, Or deep in entrails ever rife with pain
