Why further stay thee? Let the eastern world Sound with the war, all cities of the earth 'Conquered by me, as vassals, to my camp 'Send all their levied hosts. And you whose names 'Within the Latian book recorded stand, 'Strike for Epirus with the northern wind; 'And thence in Greece and Macedonian tracts, (While winter gives us peace) new strength acquire 'For coming conflicts.' They obey his words And loose their ships and launch upon the main. But Caesar's might, intolerant of peace Or lengthy armistice, lest now perchance The fates might change their edicts, swift pursued The footsteps of his foe. To other men, So many cities taken at a blow, So many strongholds captured, might suffice; And Rome herself, the mistress of t

e river Alpheus of the Peloponnesus passed under the sea and reappeared in the fountain of Arethusa at Syracuse. A goblet was said to have been thrown into the river in Greece, and to have reappeared in the Sicilian fountain. See the note in Grote's 'History of Greece,' Edition 1862, vol. ii., p. 8. Alpheus who in far Sicilian lands Beyond the billows seeks the day again: Arcadian Maenalus, and OEta loved By Hercules, and old Dodona's oaks Are left to silence; for the sacred train With all Epirus rushes to the war. Athens, deserted at the call to arms, Yet found three vessels in Apollo's port To prove her triumph o'er the Persian king. Next seek the battle Creta's hundred tribes Beloved of Jove and rivalling the east In skill to wing the arrow from the bow. The walls of Dardan Oricum, the woods Where Athamanians wander, and the banks Of swift Absyrtus foaming to the main Are left forsaken.

Lentulus Crus. Ere yet their year was dead: a foreign land Obscure received the magistrates of Rome; A senate sojourning in foreign lands Held there high questire, are exiles.That is to say, Caesar's Senate at Rome could boast of those Senators only whom it had, before Pompeius' flight, declared public enemies. But they were to be regarded as exiles, having lost their rights, rather than the Senators in Epirus, who were in full possession of theirs.

Not in equal shares 'The world has fallen between us: thou alone Dost hold Italia, but Epirus I And all the lords of Rome.' Twice called and thrice Antonius lingered still: but Caesar's mind Was that he failed the gods, not they his cause. By night he braved the strait which others feared Though bidden: for he knew that daring deeds Are safely wrought beneath the smile of heaven: And thus he hoped in fragile boat to cross The stormy billows fearful to a fleet.
