  • There Agamemnon, Priam here, he spies, And fierce Achilles, who both kings defies.
  • But Argive chiefs, and Agamemnon’s train, When his refulgent arms flash’d thro’ the shady plain, Fled from his well-known face, with wonted fear, As when his thund’ring sword and pointed spear Drove headlong to their ships, and glean’d the routed rear.
  • High in his chariot then Halesus came, A foe by birth to Troy’s unhappy name: From Agamemnon born— to Turnus’ aid A thousand men the youthful hero led, Who till the Massic soil, for wine renown’d, And fierce Auruncans from their hilly ground, And those who live by Sidicinian shores, And where with shoaly fords Vulturnus roars, Cales’ and Osca’s old inhabitants, And rough Saticulans, inur’d to wants: Light demi-lances from afar they throw, Fasten’d with leathern thongs, to gall the foe.
