P. Vergilius Maro, Aeneid (ed. Theodore C. Williams), Book 2, line 453 (search)
e our hearts inflamed to stand and strike for the king's house, and to his body-guard bring succor, and renew their vanquished powers. A certain gate I knew, a secret way, which gave free passage between Priam's halls, and exit rearward; hither, in the days before our fall, the lone Andromache was wont with young Astyanax to pass in quest of Priam and her husband's kin. This way to climb the palace roof I flew, where, desperate, the Trojans with vain skill hurled forth repellent arms. A tower was there, reared skyward from the roof-top, giving view of Troy's wide walls and full reconnaissance of all Achaea's fleets and tented field; this, with strong steel, our gathered strength assailed, and as the loosened courses offered us great threatening fissures, we uprooted it from its aerial throne and thrust it down.

There, too, is he Who shall uproot proud Argos and the towers Of Agamemnon; vanquishing the heir Even of Aeacus, the warrior seed Of Peleus' son; such vengeance shall be wrought For Troy's slain sires, and violated shrines! “Or who could fail great Cato's name to tell? Or, Cossus, thine? or in oblivion leave The sons of Gracchus? or the Scipios, Twin thunderbolts of war, and Libya's bane? Or, more than kingly in his mean abode, Fabricius? or Serranus
