Not illustrated. 1845 edition. Excerpt: ...the Trojan camp with all his forces (503--589). Ascanius slays Numanus with an arrow, as he indulges in loud vaunts against the Trojans (590--671). Pandarus and Bitias throw open the gate of the camp, and repel with great slaughter the approaching Latins (672--690). Turnus, on hearing of this sally, rushes to the open gate, slays Bitias, and burst into the camp (691--733).

His great-grandfather, Pilumnus, otherwise called Sterculius, was the son of Faunus. 4. Sedebat This implies the careless and inactive state of the mind of Turnus at the time he was visited by the celestial messenger. On account of the mention of the sacred grove, some take sedebat to imply a "suppliant" posture, and quote such expressions as sedere ad aras, ad liminn, &c. 5. Thaumantias Iris was the daughter of Electra and Thaumas, the son of Oceanus and Terra....
