The brothers Pandarus and Bitias, of whom Alcanor was the famous sire, on Ida born, and whom Iaera bred in sacred wood of Jove, an oread she, twin warriors, like their native hills and trees of stature proud, now burst those portals wide to them in ward consigned, and sword in hand challenge the foe to enter. Side by side, steel-clad, their tall heads in bright crested helms, to left and right, like towers, the champions stand as when to skyward, by the gliding waves of gentle Athesis or Padus wide, a pair of oaks uprise, and lift in air their shaggy brows and nodding crests sublime. In burst the Rutules where the onward way seemed open wide; Quercens no tarrying knows, nor proud Aquiculus in well-wrought arms; Tmarus sweeps on impetuous, and the host of Haemon, child of Mars. Some routed fly; some lay their lives-down at the gate. Wild rage o'erflows each martial breast, and gathered fast the Trojans rally to one point, and dare close conflict, or long sallies o'er the plain.
