ltSee line 82. Near Gades, Atlas parts their furthest bounds; But from the southern, Hammon girds them in Hard by the whirlpools; and their burning plains Stretch forth unending 'neath the torrid zone, In breadth its equal, till they reach at length The shore of ocean upon either hand. From all these regions tribes unnumbered flock To Juba's standard: Moors of swarthy hue As though from Ind; Numidian nomads there And Nasamon's needy hordes; and those whose darts Rival the flying arrows of the Mede: Dark Garamantians leave their fervid home; And those whose coursers unrestrained by bit Or saddle, yet obey the rider's hand Which wields the guiding switch: the hunter, too, Who wanders forth, his home a fragile hut, And blinds with flowing robe (if spear should fail) The angry lion, monarch of the steppe.

' Not such their weapons; and the first assault ' Shall force the flying Mede with coward hand 'And empty quiver from the field. His faith ' In poisoned blades is placed; but trustest thou ' Those who without such aid refuse the war? ' For such alliance wilt thou risk a death, ' With all the world between thee and thy home?d the war upon ourselves, ' Then ask the foe for succour. For what blame ' Can rest on thee or Caesar worse than this, 'That in the clash of conflict ye forgot ' For Crassus' slaughtered troops the vengeance due?
