ed her orb and waned, compelled to flight ' The pirate, shrinking from the open sea, ' And humbly begging for a narrow home ' In some poor nook on shore. 'Twas I again ' Who, happier far than Sulla, drave to death From B.C. 66 to B.C. 63, Pompeius conquered Mithridates, Syria, and the East, except Parthia. ' That king who, exiled to the deep recess ' Of Scythian Pontus, held the fates of Rome ' Still in the balances. Where is the land ' That has not seen my trophies? Icy waves ' Of northern Phasis, hot Egyptian shores, ' And where Syene 'neath its noontide sun ' Knows shade on neither hand: Being (as was supposed) exactly under the Equator. Syene (the modern Assouan) is the town mentioned by the priest of Sais, who told Herodotus that 'between Syene and Elephantine are two hills with conical tops. The name of one of them is Crophi, and of the other, Mophi. Mid-way between them are the fountains of the Nile.' (Herod., II., chapter 28.) And see 'Paradise Regained,' IV., 70: Syene, and w

e And held the open: and Pompeius' flight Gave a poor triumph. Yet was narrower far The channel which gave access to the sea Than that Euboean strait It seems that the Euripus was bridged over. (Mr. Haskins' note.) whose waters lave The shore by Chalcis. Here two ships stuck fast Alone, of all the fleet; the fatal hook Grappled their decks and drew them to the land, And the first bloodshed of the civil war Here left a blush upon the ocean wave. As when the famous ship The 'Argo.' sought Phasis' stream The rocky gates closed in and hardly gripped Her flying stern; then from the empty sea The cliffs rebounding to their ancient seat Were fixed to move no more. But now the steps Of morn approaching tinged the eastern sky With roseate hues: the Pleiades were dim, The wagon of the Charioteer grew pale, The planets faded, and the silvery star Which ushers in the day, was lost in light. Thou, Magnus, hold'st the deep; yet not the same Now are thy fates, as when from every sea Thy fleet tr

Flows on unhindered to the Persian sea. But warlike Parthia wavered 'twixt the chiefs, Content to have made them two See Book I., 120.; while Scythia's hordes Dipped fresh their darts in poison, whom the stream Of Bactros bounds and vast Hyrcanian woods. Hence springs that rugged nation swift and fierce, Descended from the Twins' great charioteer.A race called Heniochi, said to be descended from the charioteer of Castor and Pollux. Nor failed Sarmatia, nor the tribes that dwell By richest Phasis, and on Halys' banks, Which sealed the doom of Croesus king; nor where From far Rhipaean ranges Tanais flows, On either hand a quarter of the world, Asia and Europe, and in winding course Carves out a continent; nor where the strait In boiling surge pours to the Pontic deep Maeotis' waters, rivalling the pride Of those Herculean pillar-gates that guard The entrance to an ocean. Thence with hair In golden fillets, Arimaspians came, And fierce Massagetae, who quaff the blood Of the brave steed

t. ' What youth,' he cries, ' Dares strike me down, and through his captain's wounds 'Attest his love for death? ' Then through his side Plunge blades uncounted on the moment drawn. He praises all : but him who struck the first Grateful, with dying strength, he does to death. They rush together, and without a foe Work all the guilt of battle. Thus of yore, Rose up the glittering Dircaean band From seed by Cadmus sown, and fought and died, Dire omen for the brother kings of Thebes. And so in Phasis' fields the sons of earth, Born of the sleepless dragon, all inflamed By magic incantations, with their blood Deluged the monstrous furrow, while the Queen Feared at the spells she wrought. Devoted thus To death, they fall, yet in their death itself Less valour show than in the fatal wounds They take and give; for e'en the dying hand Missed not a blow nor did the stroke alone Inflict the wound, but rushing on the sword Their throat or breast received it to the hilt; And when by fatal chance
