So Cybele, The Berecynthian goddess, castle-crowned, On through the Phrygian kingdoms speeds her car, Exulting in her hundred sons divine, All numbered with the gods, all throned on high. “Let now thy visionary glance look long On this thy race, these Romans that be thine. Here Caesar, of Iulus' glorious seed, Behold ascending to the world of light! Behold, at last, that man, for this is he, So oft unto thy listening ears foretold, Augustus Caesar, kindred unto Jove. He brings a golden age; he shall restore Old Saturn's sceptre to our Latin land, And o'er remotest Garamant and Ind His sway extend; the fair dominion outruns th' horizon planets, yea, beyond The sun's bright path, where Atlas' shoulder bears Yon dome of heaven set thick with burning stars.

Your swords and lances! Man the walls! To arms! The foe is here! What ho!” With clamors loud the Teucrians through the city-gates retire, and muster on the walls. For, wise in war, Aeneas, ere he went, had left command they should not range in battle-line, nor dare, whate'er might hap, to risk in open plain the bold sortie, but keep them safe entrenched in mounded walls.
