And from the strand of Dardan, where they fought, (1437)

To Simois' reedy banks the red blood ran, (1438)

Whose waves to imitate the battle sought (1439)

With swelling ridges; and their ranks began (1440)

To break upon the galled shore, and than
Retire again, till, meeting greater ranks, (1442)

They join and shoot their foam at Simois' banks.
