Publish the following Books, which constitute a regular series of 
elementary Latin works designed for the use of Schools: 

Infill CtraBSfimar. A Grammar of the Latin Language, 
for the Use of Schools, and Colleges. By Professor E. A. 
ANDREWS and Professor S. STODDARD. 

This Grammar has been adopted in most of the schools and colleges 
of this country. It is distinguished for its copiousness, its philosophical 
arrangement, and the scientific precision of its rules and definitions. 

The following works have been prepared by Professor ANDREWS, for 
the purpose of completing the series, of which the Grammar of Andrews 
and Stoddard is the basis : 

Questions on the CJraBiiiii^i'. Questions on 

Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar. 

This little volume is intended to aid the student in examining himself 
in regard to the preparation of his lessons, and the teacher in conducting 
his recitations. 

Lessons. First Lessons in Latin, or an Intro- 
duction to Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar. 
This volume is designed for the younger classes of Latin students, to 
whom the larger Grammar might, at first, appear too formidable, and for 
all who, at any period of life, may wish to acquire an accurate knowledge 
of the first principles of the language. The work is complete in itself, 
containing the prominent rules and principles of the Grammar, with easy 
reading and writing lessons, serving to illustrate those principles. It is 
also furnished with numerous grammatical references, and a dictionary 
of the Latin words and phrases occurring in the lessons. 

Latift Header. The First Part of Jacobs and Boring's 
Latin Reader, with a Dictionary and Notes; adapted to 
Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar. 

The plan of this edition of the Latin Reader, which was in a great 
degree new, has been so highly approved, as to lead to its introduction, 
with suitable modifications, into all the subsequent volumes of the series. 
Instead of the grammatical notes usually found in works of this kind, 
numerous references are every where made to those principles of the 
Grammar which serve to explain the peculiarities of form or construction 
which occur in the lessons. The application of these principles is gen- 
erally left to the sagacity of the student, and by this means a wholesome 
exercise of his faculties is fully secured. 

Latin Exercises 5 adapted to Andrews and Stoddard's 

Latin Grammar. 

The exercises contained in this volume are designed to illustrate the 
principles of the Latin Grammar in its various departments, and to render 
their application easy and familiar to the student. The plan and arrange

ment of the work are such, that, under the direction of a judicious 
teacher, the student may commence the use of it almost as soon as he 
takes up his grammar, and continue it, at least as an occasional exercise, 
until he has finished his preparatory course. It is intended to smooth 
his way to original composition in the Latin language, both in prose and 
in verse. 

A Key to Latin Exercises 5 adapted to Andrews and 
Stoddard's Latin Grammar. 

This Key, containing all the lessons in the Exercises fully corrected, 
is intended for the use of teachers only. 

RoiIUE. The Viri Romae of Lhomond, adapted to' 
Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar ; with Notes and a 
copious Dictionary. 

A careful perusal of this book, after the student has made himself 
master of the Reader, will constitute a good preparation for reading the 
easier Latin classics, which, without some such intermediate work, are 
commonly read under great disadvantages. It will at the same time ren- 
der him familiar with the principal characters and most prominent events 
of Roman history. 

Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic War ; with a 

Dictionary and Notes. 

The text of this edition of Csesar's Gallic War has been formed by 
reference to the best modern German editions. The Notes are 

grammatical, and are intended to afford that kind and degree of assistance 
which the student may be supposed to need at his first introduction to a 
genuine classic author. The Dictionary, which, like all the others in the 
series, has been prepared with great labor, contains not only the usual 
significations of each word, and its derivation, but an explanation of all 
those phrases which might otherwise perplex the student. 
[The above work is nearly completed, and will soon be put to press.] 

$alliest. Sallust's History of the War against Jugurtha, 
and of the Conspiracy of Catiline ; with a Dictionary and 

The plan of this edition of Sallust is the same as that of the preceding 
work. The text of Cortius has, in many instances, been exchanged for 
that of Kr'itz or Gerlach, and its orthography is, in general, conformed to 
that of Pottier and of Planche, and is, consequently, in most cases, the 
same as is found in school editions of the other Latin classics. 

Ovid. Selections from the Metamorphoses and Heroides 
of Ovid ; with Notes, Grammatical References, and Exer- 
cises in Scanning. 

These Selections are designed as an introduction to Latin poetry. 
They consist of the most interesting fables from Ovid, with numerous 
brief notes explanatory of difficult phrases, of obscure historical or mytho- 
logical allusions, and especially of grammatical difficulties. To these are 
added such Exercises in Scanning as will serve fully to introduce the 
student to a knowledge of the structure and laws of hexameter and 
pentameter verse. 

New Series of Latin School Books. 

ANDREWS AND STODDARD'S LATIN GRAMMAR has long since been intro- 
duced into the LATIN SCHOOL OF THE CITY OF BOSTON, and into most 
of the other principal Classical Schools in this country. It is adopted by 
all the Colleges in New England, viz., HARVARD, YALE, DARTMOUTH, 
dletown,and WASHINGTON COLLEGE at Hartford; also at HAMILTON COL- 
SITIES OF MICHIGAN and ALABAMA ; and has been highly recommended 
by Professors Kingsley, Woolsey, Olmstead, and Gibbs, of Yale College; 
Professor Beck, of Harvard College ; President Penney and Professor North, 
of Hamilton College; Professor Packard, of Bowdoin College; Professor 
Holland, of Washington College ; Professor Fisk, of Amherst College, and 
by Professor Hacketfc, of Brown University; also by Messrs. Dillaway 
and Gardner, of the Boston Latin School ; Rev. Lyman Colman, of the 
English High School, Andover ; Hon. John Hall, Principal of the Elling- 
ton School, Conn. ; Mr. Slialcr, Principal of the Connecticut Literary 
Institution, at Suffield ; Simeon Hart, Esq., Farmington, Conn.; Pro- 
fessor Cogswell, of Round Hill School, Northampton ; President Shan- 
non, of Louisiana College, and by various periodicals. 

As a specimen of the communications received from the above sources, 
the following extracts are given : 

It gives me great pleasure to bear my testimony to the superior merits of the 
Latin Grammar lately edited by Professor Andrews and Mr. Stoddard. 1 express 
most cheerfully, unhesitatingly, and decidedly, my preference of this Grammar 
to that of Adam, which has, for so long a time, kept almost undisputed sway 
in our schools. Dr. C. Beck, Professor of Latin in Harvard University. 

I know of no grammar published in this country, which promises to answer so 
well the purposes of elementary classical instruction, and shall be glad to sep it 
introduced into our best schools. Mr. Charles K. Dillaway, Master of the 
Public Latin School, Boston. 

Your new Latin Grammar appears to me much better suited to the use of 
student* than any other grammar I am acquainted with. Professor William 
M. Holland, Washington College, Hartford, Conn. 

I can with much pleasure say that your Grammar seems to me much better 
adapted to the present condition and wants of our schools than any one with which 
I arn acquainted, and to supply that which has long been wanted a good Latin 
grammar for common use. Mr. P. Gardner, one of the Masters Boston Lot. Sch. 

The Latin Grammar of Andrews and Stoddard is deserving, in my opinion, of 
the approbation which so many of our ablest teachers have bestowed upon it 
It is believed that, of all the grammars at present before the public, this has 
greatly the advantage, in regard both to the excellence of its arrangement, and 
the accuracy and copiousness of its information; and it is earnestly hoped that 
its merits will procure for it that general favor and use to which it is entitled. 
H. B. Hackett, Professor of Languages in Brown University. 

The universal favor with which this Grammar is received was not unexpected. 
It will bear a thorough and discriminating examination. In the use of well- 
defined and expressive terms, especially in the syntax, we know of no Latin or 
Greek grammar which is to be compared to this. Amer. Quarterly Register. 

The Latin Grammar of Andrews and Stoddard [ consider a work of great 
merit. I have found in it several principles of the Latin language correctly ex- 
plained which I had myself learned from a twenty years' study of that language, 
but had never seen illustrated in any grammar. Andrews's First Lessons I con-

sider a valuable work for beginners, and in the sphere which it is designed to 
occupy, I know not that I have met its equal. Rev. James Shannon, President 
Qf College of Louisiana. 

These works will furnish a series of elementary publications for the study of 
Latin altogether in advance of any thing which has hitherto appeared, either in 
this country or in England. American Biblical Repository. 

We have made Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar the subject both of 
reference and recitation daily forseveml months, and I cheerfully and decidedly 
bear testimony to its superior excellence to any manual of the kind with which 
I am acquainted. Every part bears the impress of a careful compiler. The 
principles of syntax are happily developed in the rules, whilst those relating to 
the moods and tenses supply an important deficiency in our former grammars. 
The rules of prosody are also clearly and fully exhibited. Rev. Lyman Cole- 
man, Principal of Burr Seminary, Manchester, Vt. 

I have examined Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar, and regard it aa 
superior to any thing of the kind now in use. It is what has long been needed, 
and will undoubtedly be welcomed by every one interested in the philology of 
the Latin language. We shall hereafter use it as a text-book in this institution. 
Mr. Win. H. Shaler, Principal of the Connecticut Lit. Institution at Siiffield. 

This work bears evident marks of great care and skill, and ripe and accurate 
scholarship in the authors. It excels most grammars in this particular, that, 
while by its plainness it is suited to the necessities of most beginners, by its 
fulness and detail it will satisfy the inquiries of the advanced scholar, and will 
be a suitable companion at all stages of his progress. We cordially commend 
it to the student and teacher. Biblical Repository. 

Your Grammar is what I expected it would be an excellent book, and just the 
thing which was needed. We cannot hesitate a moment in laying aside tho 
books now in use, and introducing this. Rev. J. Penney, D. D., President of 
Hamilton College, New York. 

Your Grammar bears throughout evidence of original and thorough investiga- 
tion and sound criticism. 1 hope, and doubt not, it will be adopted in our schools 
and colleges, it being, in my apprehension, so far as simplicity is concerned, on 
the one hand, and philosophical views and sound scholarship on the other, far 
preferable to other grammars ; a work at the same time highly creditable to your- 
selves and to our country. Professor A. Packard, Bowdoin College, Maine. 

This Grammar appears to me to be accommodated alike to the wants of the 
new beginner and the experienced scholar, and, as such, well fitted to supply 
what has long been felt to be a great desideratum in the department of classical 
learning. Professor S. North, Hamilton College, New York. 

From such an examination of this Grammar as I have been able to give it, 1 
do not hesitate to pronounce it superior to any other with which I am acquainted. 
I have never seen, any where, a greater amount of valuable matter compressed 
within limits equally narrow. Hon. John Hall, Prin. of Ellington School, Conn. 

We have no hesitation in pronouncing this Grammar decidedly superior to 
any now in use. Boston Recorder. 

I am ready to express my great satisfaction with your Grammar, and do not 
hesitate to say, that 1 am better pleased with such portions of the syntax as 1 
have perused, than with the corresponding portions in any other grammar with 
which I am acquainted. Professor N. W. Fiske, Amherst College, Mass. 

I know of no grammar in the Latin language so well adapted to answer the 
purpose for which it was designed as this. The book of Questions is a valuable 
attendant of the Grammar. Simeon Hart, Esq., Farmington, Conn. 

This Grammar has received the labor of years, and is the result of much re- 
flection and experience, and mature scholarship. As such, it claims the atten- 
tion of all who are interested in the promotion of sound learning. N. Y. Obs. 

This Grammar is an original work. Its arrangement is philosophical, and its 
rules clear and precise, beyond those of any other grammar we have seen.*

THE following Exercises form the concluding volume of a 
series of elementary Latin works, the basis of which is the Latin 
Grammar of Andrews and Stoddard. In addition to the Grammar 
and Exercises, the series includes, under the title of " First Lessons 
in Latin," an abridgment of the Grammar, with short reading les- 
sons and corresponding exercises in syntax ; and also an edition of 
" Jacobs and Boring's Latin Reader," with copious references to 
the larger Grammar. 

The volume now offered to the public consists of exercises de- 
signed to illustrate the principles of orthoepy, etymology, syntax, 
and prosody, as exhibited in the same Grammar, and to render their 
application easy and familiar to the student. 

The exercises in syntax are divided into two parts. In the first, 
which contains only short sentences, intended to illustrate the more 
important principles of syntax, the rules are arranged in such a 
manner, as to prevent, in a great degree, the introduction of idioms 
not previously illustrated. In the second part, the order of the 
rules in the Grammar has been preserved, and the number of exam- 
ples has been proportioned, in some degree, to the importance or 
difficulty of the rule. Subjoined to these are other examples, 
illustrative of the more important remarks and exceptions under 
each rule. To the examples of English and Latin sentences, ar- 
ranged in corresponding columns, are added others, consisting of 
English sentences only, with notes designed to aid the student in 
his choice of words and phrases, and to lead him to the right con- 
struction. In the syntactic part of the work, Dr. Kenrick's Exer- 
cises, adapted to his translation of Zumpt's Grammar, have furnished 
many of the most valuable materials ; and whatever was wanting in 
that work to complete the plan of these exercises has been supplied 
from other sources. 


The prosodial exercises are taken from Bradley's Prosody, and 
will be found particularly useful to those who wish to acquire the 
art of writing Latin verses an art, as experience has shown, 
highly useful in improving the classical taste of those who practise 
it, and scarcely requiring more time or labor for its acquisition than 
is often spent in decrying it. 

In regard to the mode of using this work, much must be left to 
the judgment of the teacher, who Avill be guided, in this respect, 
by a consideration of the age and attainments of the student. In 
general, the exercises in etymology, and the shorter ones in syntax, 
can be corrected after the first perusal of the Grammar ; while the 
remaining parts should be studied in connection with a thorough 
review of those portions of the Grammar to which they relate. 
In commencing the study of this work, it may be best for the student 
to write the principal part of his exercises; but subsequently, and 
especially in reviewing it, oral translations will probably be found 
more useful. By this means, English words and phrases become 
permanently associated with the corresponding Latin expressions, 
so that the latter are immediately suggested by the former. 

The exercises in hexameter and pentameter verses can be com- 
menced as soon as the student is well acquainted with the principal 
rules of prosody. With these it may be found useful to connect the 
composition of what are called nonsense verses, or lines correctly 
constructed, according to the rules of prosody, but without regard 
to the meaning of the words of which they are composed. An 
accurate knowledge of the mechanical structure of the verse may, 
in this way, be readily acquired ; after which the transition will 
be easy, on the part of those who possess some share of poetical 
genius, to the composition of sense verses. 

When the student is familiar with the exercises contained in this 
volume, he will be prepared to commence original composition ; 
which should always be accompanied with a careful perusal of the 
best Latin classics, from which alone a pure idiom can be acquired.

desiit : " Vitarn tibi, Cinna, iterum do, prius hosti, cum te in 
hostium meorum castris invenerim, nunc insidiatori ac par- 
ricide. Ex hodierno die inter nos amicitia incipiat ; et 
quarn libenter ego tibi vitam do, tarn libenter tu mihi earn 
debeas." Post hnec, detiilit ei ultro consulatum, questus quod 
non auderet petere ; amicissimum fidelissimumque habuit.

The following questions are inserted as examples of exercises on the 

What are the terminations of the several cases in the first 
declension in each number? in the second declension? 
in the third? in the fourth? in the fifth? What is the 
termination of the nom. sing, in the first declension? nom. 
plur. ? gen. sing. ? gen. plur. ? dat. sing ? dat. plur. ? 

ace. sing.? ace. plur.? voc. sing.? voc. plur.? 

abl. sing. ? abl. plur. ? 

Similar questions should be proposed in regard to the other declen- 
ions, varying their order, till each termination can be readily given 


without reference to its connection ; after which promiscuous exercises 
on all the declensions can be introduced. 

What is the root of aula ? cur a 1 galea ? insula ? 
litera ? luscinia ? machma ? penna ? sagitta 1 
Stella 1 toga ? 

What is the root of animus 1 clypeus ? corvus 1 gla- 
dius ? numerus ? puer ? socer ? aper 1 faber ? 
magister 1 antrum 1 bellum 1 negotium ? 

What is the root of poema ? stemma ? anclle ? 
aquilo ? regio ? ferrugo ? formldo ? homo ? caro ? 
animal 1 Titan ? career ? mel ? agmen 1 tibl- 
cen 1 f rater 1 crater 1 fcr 1 hcpar ? cor ? ebur ?

apex ? senex ? nix ? nox ? 

What is the root of cantus ? currus ? exercitus 1

The student will perceive that the roots of many nouns and adjec- 
tives are not found in the nominative singular. For the purpose of 
supplying the true root, as well as for determining the declension, the 
termination of the genitive singular is given in the dictionary, since, 
in all the declensions, the root may be found by removing the termi- 
nation of this case.

CsBsnr is said to have been of tall stature, fair 1 com-

pleasanter-^ to those who have recovered^ from a severe* 
disease, than (to those) who have never had' a sickly body. 
Marcellus labored under^ unfavorable reports, because, in 
the middle fc of the summer, he had led' his soldiers to quar- 
ters at Venucia" 1 . Curio was so devoid of memory 11 , that 
often , when he had laid down* three 7 (heads) in speaking 1 ", 
he would add a fourth 7 . Among* the Romans, scribes were 
deemed' mercenaries ; but" among the Greeks, no one was 


admitted to that office, except* of respectable birth*, and 
known y industry and Jiddity. Cato was characterized in 
all things by* singular sagacity and industry ; for he was 
a skilful 66 farmer, experienced" 6 in public affairs**, a great 
commander, and a respectable 6 ' orator. Augustus was in- 
formed 7/ of what age ee , stature, and complexion** , (every

R. 8, (1.) The features of the mind are more beautiful

R. 8, (2.) From* the beginning of the Roman name, a 
law 6 was established 6 , that no one d of the Romans could" be 
of more than 7 one city. The law is, if the father of a family 
dies*' intestate* 1 , let his slaves* and his money belong-* to his 
kinsmen* and relations'. Leave riches to the rich m : do thou 
prefer virtue to riches". The orator Arrius played-', as it 
were , the second p (part) after Crassus 5 . The senate at 
Nola was attached to the Romans* ; the common people to 
Hannibal. You know me to be wholly* devoted to Pompey 1 .

Thales the Milesian (was the) first* (who) predicted an 
eclipse of the sun, which took place 6 in the reign of Holy at- 
tes, in the one hundred and seventieth year of the building 6 
of the city. A peroration, which is called epilogus, of C. 
Galba is extant, which, when we were boys, was so much 
esteemed^, that we even got it by heart 6 . Know 7 that no 
one dined^ in the consulship of Caninius, that no* crime* 
was committed 6 in his consulship. Brutus created for his 
own colleague j Valerius, by whose aid k he had expelled' the 
kings. My father Hamilcar went into Spain (as) com- 
mander" 1 when I was a little boy, not more" than nine years 
old . Augustus travelled 7 ' frequently into the eastern and 
western provinces, accompanied 9 by Lima. Lentulus, a 
consular man, and pretor for the second time 7 ", Cethegus, 
and other men of illustrious* name, were put to death' in 
prison by the authority of the senate. Isocrates arose" when 
Gorgias, Protagoras, and the others whom I have just" men-

There is a difference between the case of a man' who is op-

it is alleged that something is 
true and right, but it is denied 
that it can be carried, that is, 
that the people can be resisted. 

You can scarcely find a man 
of any nation, age, or rank, whose 
felicity you can compare to the 
fortunes of Metellus. 

I would not deny that my lan- 
guage seemed to you harsh and 
atrocious ; but how much more 
atrocious do you think that your 
deeds are, than my words? 

I should not reckon him sec- 
ond or third in a chariot-race, 
who has scarcely quitted the bar- 
riers, when the first has already 
received the palm. 

The third mode of mining 
would outdo the work of the 
giants ; galleries being carried

I wish you to be persuaded 
that you can do nothing more ac- 
ceptable to me, than to assist 
Lamia in his candidateship with 
all your resources. 

It escaped me to write to you 
before about Dionysius ; if it 
shall be necessary to send for 
him, (which I do not wish,) you 
will take care that we do not give 
him trouble against his will. 

Assuredly I should not a little 
prefer the mind of Socrates to 
the fortunes of all those who sat 
in judgment upon him. 

R. 5. Who would deny that 
all fickle men, all men of strong

are slaves ?

If we ourselves, who are pre-

One furious gladiator carries

R. 6. So live with an inferior, 
as you would wish a superior to 
live with you. 

Let every one become ac- 
quainted with his own disposi- 
tion, and show himself a severe 
judge both of his own good qual-

Metellus Pius was asked what

the apodosis.

I would willingly be Diogenes." 

There are innumerable things 
of the same kind which I could 
not endure, if I had not my 
friend Atticus as a partner of 
my pursuits. 

These things seem ridiculous 
to you, because you were not 
present, which if you were to 
see, you could not help weeping. 

If any one were to dig round

born wise, wisdom would lose

In punishing injuries the law

As to the rest, I wish you

6. Non galese, non ensis erant ; sine militis usu, 
Mollia secures peragebant otia gentes. 

7. Ipsa quoque immunis, rastroque intacta, nee ullis 
Saucia vorneribus, per se dabat omnia tellus : 

8. Contentique cibis, nullo cogente, creatis, 
Arbuteos fetus montanaque fraga legebant, 

9. Cornaque, et in duris hasrentia mora rubetis, 
Et, quce deciderant patula Jovis arbore, glandes. 

10. Ver erat eeternum ; placidique tepentibus auris 
Mulcebant Zephyri natos sin6 semine Sores. 


11. Mox etiam fruges tellus inarata ferebat ; 
Nee renovatus ager gravidis canebat aristis. 

12. Flumina jam lactis, jam flumina nectaris ibant; 
Flavaque de viridi stillabant ilice mella. 

13. Fostquam, Saturno tenebrosa in Tartara misso, 
Sub Jove mundus erat, subiit argentea proles, 
Auro deterior, fulvo pretiosior cere. 

14 Jupiter antiqui contraxit tempora veris, 

Perque hyemes, aestusque, et inaequales autumnos, 
Et breve ver, spatiis exegit quatuor annum. 

15. Turn primum siccis, aer, fervoribus ustus, 
Canduit; et ventis glacies astricta pependit. 
Turn primum subiere domos; dornus antra fuerunt, 

16. Et densi frutices, et vinctoe cortice virgce. 
Semina turn primum longis Cerealia sulcis 
Obruta sunt, pressique jugo gemuere juvenci. 


311. A pentameter verse consists of five feet. It is gene- 
rally, however, divided, in scanning, into two hemistichs, the first 
consisting of two feet, either dactyls or spondees, followed by a 
long syllable ; the last of two dactyls, also followed by a long 

The following poem consists of alternate hexameter and pentameter 
lines, forming what is called elegiac verse. 

Ariadne Thesco. 

1. Quse legis ex illo, Theseu, tibi litore mitto, 

Unde tuam sine me vela tulcre ratem. 

2. Tempus erat, vitrea quo primum terra pruina 

Spargitur, et tectue fronde queruntur aves. 

3. Luna fuit : specto si quid nisi litora cernam; 

Quod videant, oculi nil nisi litus habent. 

4. Nunc hue, nunc illuc, et utroque sine ordine curro, 

Alta puellares tardat arena pedes. 
Mons fuit; apparent frutices in vertice rari; 
Hinc scopulus raucis pendet adesus aquis 

5. Ascendo ; vires animus dabat ; atque ita late 

^Equora prospectu metior alta meo. 
Inde ego, nam ventis quoque sum crudelibus usa, 
Vidi prcecipiti carbasa tenta Noto. 


6. " Quo fugis ? " exclamo, " scelerate, revertere, Theseu 

Flecte ratem ; numerum non habet ilia suum." 
Haec ego ; quod voci deerat, plangore replebam : 
Verbera cum verbis mista fuere meis. 

7. Quid faciam ? quo sola ferar ? vacat insula cultu : 

Non hominum video, non ego facta bourn. 
Omne latus terrae cingit uiare. Navita nusquam ; 
Nulla per arnbiguas puppis itura vias. 

8. Occurrunt animo pereundi mille figurce ; 

Morsque minus poenae, quam mora mortis habet. 
Jam, jam venturos aut hue, aut suspicor iliac, 
Qui lanient avldo viscera dente, lupos : 

9. Forsitan et f'ulvos tellus alat ista leones ; 

Quis scit an haec seevas tigridas insula habet ? 
Et freta dicuntur magnas expellere phocas. 
Quid vetat et gladios per latus ire meum ? 

10. Si mare, si terras, pcrrectaque litora vidi, 

Multa mihi terras, multa minantur aquae. 
Coelum restabat : timeo simulacra deorum. 
Destituor rapidis praeda cibusque feris. 

11. Ergo ego nee lacrymas matris moritura videbo ? 

Nee, mea qui digitis lumina condat, erit? 
Spiritus infelix peregrinas ibit in auras ? 
Nee positos artus unget arnica manus ? 

12. Ossa superstabunt volucres inhumata marinae ? 

Haec sunt officiis digna sepulcra meis ? 

Ibis Cecropios portus ; patriaque receptus 

Cum steteris urbis celsus in arce tuae, 

13. Et bene narraris letum taurique virique, 

Sectaque per dubias saxea tecta vias. 
Me quoque narrato sola tellure relictam. 

Non ego sum titulis surripienda tuis. 
Nee pater est ^Egeus ; nee tu Pittheidos ./Ethree 

Filius: auctores saxa fretumque tui. 

14. Di facerent, ut me summft de puppe videres ! 

Movisset vultus moesta figura tuos. 
Nunc quoque non oculis, sed, qua potes, aspice mente 

Haerentem scopulo, quern vaga pulsat aqua. 
Aspice demissos lugentis in ore capillos ; 

Et tunicas lacrymis, sicut ab imbre, graves. 

15. Corpus, ut impulsse segetes Aquilonibus, horret ; 

Literaque articulo pressa tremente labat. 
Non te per meritum, quoniam male cessit, adoro ; 

Debita sit facto gratia nulla meo ; 
Sed nee poena quidem ; si non ego causa salutis, 

Non tamen est, cur sis tu mihi causa necis. 


16. Has tibi, plangendo lugubria pectora lassas, 

Infelix tendo trans f'reta longa manus. 
Hos tibi, qui superant, ostendo mcesta capillos. 

Per lacrymas oro, quas tua facta movent, 
Flecte ratem, Theseu, versoque relabere velo. 
Si prius occidero, tu tamen ossa leges. 


3O9. Caesura is the separation, by the ending of a word, of 
syllables rhythmically or metrically connected. 

The following exercises consist of lines serving to illustrate the 
different kinds of cossura. These may be formed into hexameter or 
pentameter verses by changing the position of one word in each 
line. The places in which each kind of ccesura occurs are to be 

1. Ipse dei clypeus terra ct\m imd tollitur, 
Mane rubet ; rubet terraque, cum conditur ima. 

2. En, proles antiqua redit ; virtus, concordia, 
Cumque fide pietas cervice altd vagantur. 

3. Robora nee cuneis, olentem scindere et cedrum, 
Nee plaustris cessant vectare ornos gementibus. 

4. Sponte juvenco tuus florebit ager cessante ; 
Oblatas mirabitur incola ditior messes. 

5. Non propter vitam quidam faciunt patrimonia, 
Vitio cseci, scd propter patrimonia vivunt. 

6. Sol fugit, et removent subeuntia coelum nubila,

7. Quod si quis monitis aures tardas adverterit, 

Heu, referet quanto mca verba dolore ! 

8. Arte laboratfe puppes vincuntur ab aequore. 

Tu tua brachia plus remis posse putes ? 

9. Casta placent superis ; venite puru cum veste,

Abstulerit, posse pati non ulla mala putetis. 

11. Multa dies, variusque mutabilis sevi labor, 
In melius retulit, multos alterna revisens 
Lusit, et in solido fortuna rursus locavit. 

309. PROSODY C.ESURA. 281 

12. Alternis idem cessare tonsas novales, 

Et patiere segnem situ durescere campum ; 
Aut ibi flava, mutato sidere, seres farra.

Obscurutn aera cingens connexis ramis, 

Et gelidas umbras, alte summotis solibus. 

14. Interea colat pax arva ; pax Candida primum 

Duxit sub juga curva araturos boves. 
Nitent pace bidens vomerque ; at tristia duri 
Militis situs in tenebris occupat arrna. 

15. Non domus et fundus, non acervus sens et auri 
Deduxit asgroto domini corpore febres, 

Non animo curas. Oportet valeat possessor, 
Si uti comportatis rebus bene cogitat. 

16. Hie sades augusta deae, colendi templique 
Silex religiosa, densis quam pinus obumbrat 
Frondibus, et procelhi nulla lucos agitante, 
Kami stridula conifer! modulantur carmina. 

The lines in the exercises which follow may also be formed into 
verses by changing the arrangement of the words. The words print- 
ed in Italics are compound words, which must be divided, and, 
in one instance, a part is to be placed at the beginning of the 
next line. 

1. Ego non falsa loquar : ter acutum ensem sustulit, 

Ter recidit manus male sublato ense. 

2. Sed timor obstitit et pietas ausis crudelibus,

3. Cor pavet admonitu noctis sanguine temeratse,

4. Postque tacitus venit, circumdatus fuscis alis, 

Somnus, et vana somnia incerto pede. 

5. Aures vacent lite, insanaque protinus absint 

Jurgia : livida lingua, differ tuum opus. 

6. Navita non moritur fluctu, non miles cuspide :

7. Iliados cantabitur conditor, atque M.ironis 
Altisoni carmina, facientia palmam dubiam. 

8. Quacunque so medio agmine virgo furens tulit, 
Hac Aruns subit, et tacitus lustrat vestigia. 



9. Tune genitum Maia, qui reportet fervida dicta, 
Imperat acciri. Cylenius ales astitit, 
Quatiens somniferam virgam, tectusque galero. 

10. Atlantiades paret dictis genitoris, et inde 
Surntna pedum propere illigat plantaribus alls, 
Obnubitque comas, et galero astra temperat. 

11. Principio, mirantur non reddere mare majus, 
Nat.uram, quo sit aquarum tantus decursus, 
Quo veniant omnia flumina ex omni parte. 

12. Jamque, surgens per confinia emeriti Phcebi, 
Titanis, late subvecta silenti mundo, 
Tenuaverat gelidum aera rorifera biga 

13. Tale tuum carmen nobis, poeta divine, 

Quale fessis in gramine sopor ; quale per aestum 
Restinguere sitim saliente rivo dulcis aquae. 

14. Ut sylvae mutantur foliis in pronos annos, 
Prima cadunt; ita vetus a.'tas verborum interit, 
Et inodo nata florent vigentque ritu juvenum. 

15. Hie radiant flores, et viva voluptas prati, 
Variata suo ingenio ; illic fulgentibus 

Toris strata surgunt; hie mollis herba panditur, 
Non abruptura soporem solicitum curis. 

16. Quod caret alterna requie, non est durabile. 

Hrec reparat vires, novat fessaque membra. 
Arcus et anna tuac Dianae sunt imitanda tibi ; 
Si tendere nunquam cesses, erit mollis. 

17. ^Equorece aquae miscentur; aether caret ignibus, 
Caecaque nox tenebris hyemisque suisque premitur. 
Tamen discutiunt has, praebentque lumen micantia 
Fulmina : undse ardcscunt fulmineis ignibus. 

18. Movit et eoos recessus fama bellorum, 
Qua Ganges colitur, qui solus in toto orbe 
Solvere ostia contraria nascenti Phcebo, 
Audet et impellit fluctus in adversum Eurum. 

19. Hie purpureum ver; hlc circumfundit flumina varies 

humus flores ; hlc Candida populus antro 

Jmminet; et lentse vites texunt umbracula. 

Hue ades : sine insani fluctus feriant litora. 

20. Dixerat : ille pennas madidantes novo nectare 
Concutit, et maritat glebas foecundo rore. 

Quaque volat, vernus color sequitur ; in herbas omnis 
Turget humus, medioque patent sereno convexa. 



3O5. 1. A final vowel or diphthong is cut off in scanning, 
when the following word begins with a vowel. This is called 

2. Final m, with the preceding vowel, is cut off, when the fol- 
lowing word begins with a vowel. This is called ecthlipsis. 

The exercises which follow are designed to exemplify the obser- 
vations on caesura, as well as the remarks in 305 and 306. The 
introduction of synalaepha or ecthlipsis will not therefore be sufficient 
to form them into verses, without a change in the position of the 
words. The sentences in English are intended to be translated into 
Latin verse, by an application of the rules of syntax, as well as of 
prosody, to the corresponding words in Latin, which follow them : 
in these exercises a change in the arrangement of the words is not 

1. Nempe sylva inter varias nutritur columnas, 
Laudaturque domus, qus prospicit longos agros.

Ulla nee uberior, nee ulla est, quse rnagis sestuet.

Turn scindunt hominem cupidinis quantse acres 
Cursa solicitum ! quantique timores perinde !

Et habuere suas vires, raptirn ad sidera 
Nituntur propria vi, haud indiga nostrae opisque.

Et aura Zephyri possidet vacuum nemus. 


Hie licet impune proferre occultos dolores, 
Si modo saxa sola queant tenere fidem. 

10. Nee inclementia rigidi coeli conterret eum, 

Nee frigida vis Boreae, minae hyemisque. 
Statim axe verso, quin exit protinus in auras,

11. Dissensuque rumor alitur; ceu murmurat alti 
Pelagi impacata quies, cum, fracto flamine, 
Adhuc durat sssvitque tumor, per dubiumque aestum 
Lassa vestigia recedentis venti fluitant. 

12. Aut si fata movent, paratur orbi generique 
Humano lues matura; dehiscent terraene, 
Subsidentque urbes ? an fervidus aer toilet temperiem? 
infida tellus negabit segetes ? 

13. Utque, viribus sumtis in cursu, solent ire 
Pectore in arma prsetentaque tela feri leones ; 
Sic ubi unda admiserat se ventis coortis, 

In arma ratis ibat, erat multoque altior illis. 

14. Tune poles audire murmura vesani ponti fortis? 

et potes jacere in dura nave ? 

Tu fulcire positas pruinas teneris pedibus ? 
Tu, Cynthia, potes ferre insolitas nives ? 

15. Q,ualis ubi Boreas erupit ab Arctois antris, 
Perverrens aerios campos rapido turbine, 

It ferus coelo, et insequitur piceas nubes toto cethere, 
dant victa locum et cedunt cava nubila. 

16. Sunt dulces herbce ; sunt, qua? mitescere fiamma 
Mollirique queant : nee lacteus humor eripitur vobis,

atque prsebet epulas sine csede et sanguine. 

17. And now ambassadors came from the city of Latinus, Crowned

Ortus dies, cum primum altus sui gurges toUo 
Sol equus, luxque elatus naris efflo. 



306. Two vowels which are usually separated, are some- 
times contracted into one syllable. This is called synseresis. 

322, 4. Syncope is the omission of a letter or syllable in 
the middle of a word. 

7. Apocope is the omission of the final letter or syllable of a 

The contraction of one word, at least, in each of the following exer- 
cises is necessary, in order to form them into verses. The exercises, 
which are not translated, require a change in the position of the words, 
but in the English exercises this alteration of the arrangement will not 
be found necessary. 

1. Rure levis apis ingerit flores verno alveo,

5. Cum conditor urbis digereret tempora, in anno 

Suo constituit bis quinque menses esse.

8. Tu mihi, current! ad Candida praescripta supremse callis, 

spatiurn praemonstra, Calliope, callida musa,

VeAcmens, et liquidus, purusque simillimus amnis, 
Fundo opes, Latiumque beo dives lingua. 

12. Why is any man in want, who has not deserved poverty, while 
you are rich ? Why are the ancient temples of the gods falling to 
ruins? Why, O wicked man, Do you not, for your dear country, take 
something from so great a hoard ? 

Cur egeo indignus quisquam, te divite ? Quare 
Templum ruo antiquus deus ? Cur, improbus, carus 
Non aliquis patria tantus emetior acervus ? 

13. Then Mercury took in his hand the wand, by which he had 
been accustomed to chase away sweet Dreams, and to bring them

Aut suadeo iterum somnus, qui niger subeo 
Tartara, et exanguis animo assuesco umbra. 

14. The Zephyrs had heard the voice and the sighs of the complain-

The river had heard him, and an echoing murmur to his murmurs 
The water returned, and a complaint to his~coinplaints.

Et mcestus ventus congemo sonus :

Desuetus repeto filurn canorus lyra ; 
Et, reses lenis modulatus pecten nervus 

Pollex festivus nobilis duco ebur. 

17. Have you seen (surely you often see) that the drooping lilies

18. The ship, weighed down by the slaughter of the men, and

19. He admires at a distance the arms and empty chariots of heroes. 
Their spears stand fixed in the ground, and at liberty in different places 
Through the plains their horses feed : that care of their chariots And 
of their arms, which they had when alive, that care their shining 
Horses to train up, the same follows them, though interred in the earth. 

Arma procul currusque vir miror inanis. 
Sto terra defixus hasta, passimque solutus 
Per campus pascor equus : qui gratia currus

Dapibus impositis auro, tenebant paterasque.

Te unquam evolvisse nostros jocos.

12. If the fates would suffer me to pass my life agreeably to my

et meus sponte compono cura, 

Urbs Trojanus primilm meus dulcisque, 

Colo reliquiae ; Priamus tectum altus maneo. 


In the composition of Latin verse, it will often be found necessary 
not only to change the prosaic arrangement of the words, but to sub- 
stitute for some of the expressions, other phrases of the same signifi- 
cation, but of different length and quantity. In the following exercises, 
the blanks are to be filled by a word in the preceding line. 

33 ? 3. Enallage is a change of words, or a subsitution of 
one gender, number, case, person, tense, mood, or voice of the 
same word for another. 

The plural number is sometimes used instead of the singular ; 
adjectives instead of adverbs ; possessive adjectives instead of 
genitives, and genitives instead of possessive adjectives; partici- 
ples instead of verbs, relatives and verbs, or conjunctions and 
verbs ; compound instead of simple, and simple instead of com- 
pound words ; a word or words repeated instead of a conjunc- 
tion; neuter verbs instead of sum; sum instead ofhabeo; a passive 
instead of an active voice ; or an impersonal verb instead of a 
neuter verb with a nominative. 

Singular and Plural. 

1. Time passes on ; and we in the silently fleeting years grow old }

Evincti geminas manus ad suus tergum. 

76. And while the priestess prepares the sacrifice, and covers their 
temples with fillets, And still invents causes for her long delay, " Par- 
don me, O youths," she said; " I am not thus cruel. I perform sacri- 
fices more barbarous than the country itself." 

D unique sacrum paro, et (cnall,} velo tempora vitta, 
Et (cnall.) tardus causa usque invenio mora, 

" Non ego crudelis, ignosco, juvenis,'' dico ; 
" Sacra quam suus facio barbarior locus." 

77. "This is the rite of the nation. But from what city do you 
:>me ? Or why 'have you made such a voyage in a ship so little 

fortunate ? " She said ; and, the name of their country having been 
told her, the pious virgin Finds them to be inhabitants of her own 

" Ritus is sum gcnti. E qua tu tamen urle venio ? 

Quove peto (sync.) parum faustus puppis iter ? " 
Dico; et auditus patria nomen, pius virgo 

Censors sum urbs comperio suus. 

78. " But let one of you," she said, " fall a victim in our rites. Let 
the other go as a messenger to my native land." Pylades, ready to 
die, urges his beloved Orestes to go. He refuses; and each contends 
to die in the stead of the other. 

"Alter at vestrum," inquam, " cado hostia sacra. 

Ad patrius sedes eo nuntius alter." 
Pylades eo jubeo cams periturus Orestes. 

Hie nego ; uterque inque vicis pugno morior. 

79. While the honorable youths carry on this contest of love, She 
writes to her brother a letter. She gave her written commands to her 
brother, and he to whom they were intrusted, (Behold an instance of 
the vicissitude of human affairs,) was her brother. 

Dum pulcher juvenis perago certamen amor, 

Fratri scriptas exaro ille notas. 
Fratri mandatum do, quique ille do, 

Frater (humanos casus aspicio) sum. 




80. There is no delay ; they hurry away the statues of Diana from 
the temple, And a ship carries them secretly through the immense 
waters. The wonderful friendship of these youths, although BO many 
years have passed, has even now great renown in Scythia. 

Nee mora ; tempJo rapio simulacrum Diana, 

Clamque per hnmensus fero (enall.^ puppis aqua. 

Minis amor juvenis, quamvis tot annus abeo, 
In Scythia nunc quoque magnus nomen habeo. 

81. Neither do the violets nor the opening lilies always flourish, And 
the deserted thorn grows stiff, the rose being lost ; And soon hoary 
hairs will come to you, O lovely youth ! Soon will wrinkles come, 
which will make farrows in your skin. 

Nee semper viola nee hians lilium floreo, 

Et rigeo spina relictus, amissus rosa : 
Et ad tc jam canus venio, formosus, capillus ; 

Jam venio ruga, qui tuum corpus arent. 

82. Form now an understanding which may last, and add it to your 
beauty ; That alone remains to the last day of life. Nor let it be 
made a trifling concern to cultivate the mind with the liberal arts, And 
to learn perfectly two languages. 

Jam molior animus, qui duro, et forma astruo ; 

Ille solus ad extrernos permaneo rogos. 
Nee levis ingenuis pectus colo artibus 

Cura sum, et edisco duo lingua. 

83. I have often, though unwillingly, drunk bitter juices when sick, 
And the feast has been denied to me, though asking for it. You will 
endure sword and fire that you may save the body ; Nor, though thirsty, 
will you wash your parched mouth with water. Will you, then, refuse 
to bear any thing that you may be well in mind? But this part of 
man is of more value than the body. 

Sa?pe bibo succus seger, quamvis invitus, amarus ; 

et mensn negor (enall.) ego orans. 

Ut corpus redimo ferrum et ignis (enall.) patior,

Ut valeo animus quisquam nego tolero ? 

4.1 pretium pars hie quam corpus majus habet. 

Synonymous Words. 

84. Alas ! when you least expect it, in the very flower of youth, 
Death suddenly cuts off at once all the hope of the family. 

Heu ' m'mime cum reor, in juventa ipse flos, 

Mors inopinate (('nail.} domus spes protinus abripio cunctus. 

85. There is no need of envy ; far from me be the applause of the 
crowd ; He who is wise, should find a source of joy in the retirement 
of his own breast. 


Nihil (sync.) opus sum mvidia ; procul absum gloria vulgus ; 
Qui sapio, in tacitus gaudeo is sinus. 

80. You, Zoilus, who are well dressed, ridicule ray threadbare gar 
rnents. They are indeed threadbare, but, Zoilus, they are my own.

Aurora interea miser homo almus 

Eff'ero lux, et refero (enall.) opus et labor. 

88. Indeed, the approach of death alarms him only, Who, if there 
should be any existence beyond the grave, trembles for himself: It 
alarms not him who has passed his life righteously and piously. 

Scilicet hie unus mors vicinia turbo, 

Qui sui metuo, (enall.) si quid sum (resto) post funus : (enall.) 

Non hie, qui recte vita ago (enall.} sancteque. 

89. He, when the expected day of death approaches, Looks forward 
to eternal life ; he, triumphing in a better hope, Even now anticipates 
in hope the joys of the inhabitants of heaven.

Suspicio ceternus; hie, spes melior triumphans, 
Coslicola (sync.) jam nunc votis proelibo gaudium. 

90. Let the ox plough, or let him impute his death to advanced 
years. Let the sheep afford us the means of defence against the 
cold north wind. Let the full she-goats bring their udders to be 
milked by us. 

Bos aro, aut letum senior imputo annus. 
Horrifer contra Boreas ovis arma prcebeo. 
Uber satur manus pressandus do capella. 

91. The color had forsaken rny cheeks ; a leanness had seized on my 
lirnbs; My reluctant mouth took but little food. Neither were my

pressed by no particular cause of sorrow, I often breathed a sigh. 

Effugio (enall.) ore color ; artus adduco macies ; 

Capio minimus os (enall.) coactus cibus. (enall.) 
Neque somnus facilis, atque nox sum annuus ego; (enall.) 
gemitus, nullus laesus dolor, do. 

9^. The sacred spring is clear, and more transparent than a crystal 
stream ; Many think that a deity inhabits it. Above it the water-loving 
iotos spreads its branches, As though it were itself a grove ; the earta 
ground it is always green with soft turf. 

Sum nitidus vitreusque magis lucidus (enall.) fluvius 
Fons sacer ; ille multus numen habeo credo. 

Supra qui ramus expando aquaticus lotos, 
Unus sylva ; tener cespes terra vireo. 


93. Let riches be heaped up together ; whither glory or whither 
ambition leads, There go, surrounded by a crowded throng Of depend- 
ants, greeting you early in the morning. But what need is there of 
many words ? You are at length Brought to this point, that you ex- 
claim, " Alas ! how much vanity is there in worldly things !" 

Cumulor (enall.) divitice; duco quo gloria quove 
Ambitio, stipatus pergo examen densus

ut exclamo, (enall.) " Heu, quantum inane in res ! " 

94. Pluto himself appears seated on a rough throne, awful in 
gloomy Majesty ; his huge sceptre appears frightful in the dismal 
Shade ; a gloomy cloud renders his lofty brow More terrible ; and the 
sternness of his dreadful form becomes more appalling. 

Ipse, fultus rudis solium, nigerque verendus 

Dignitas, sedeo ; squaleo immcnsus fcedus 

Sceptrum (enall.") situs ; sublimis caput moestissimus nebula 

Aspero ; et rigeo dirus inclementia forma. 

95. As the sea quivers when it is brushed by a gentle breeze, As the 
tender branch of the ash is shaken by the warm south wind, So you

body that was laid on it. 

Ut csquor fit tremulum tenuis cum stringor ventus, 
Ut stringor tepidus fraxini (enall.) virga notus, 

Sic meus vibror pallidus membrum video ; 

Quassus ab corpus, quod impositus sum (enall.) lectus sum. 

96. What indeed can it profit one who is about to die to know the 
causes of things, To connect things that are present with things to

same law of death, and the same common grave, await us all. 

Ecquid enim prosum causa res cognosco,

Sol atque sidus super, moriturus ? Scilicet cunctus 
Unus letum lex maneo, et communis sepulcrum. 

97. The land of the Romans had not anciently any skilful husband- 
men ; Fierce wars wholly occupied its active inhabitants. There was

Lasso agilis asper proslium vir. 
Plus sum mferrum quam curvus honor aratrum ; 

Neglectus dominus paucus (enall.) produce ager. 

98. You are accustomed often to ask me, Priscus, what sort of man 
I should be, If I were suddenly to be made rich and become powerful.

should you be ? 


Saepe qu&ro soleo, qualis sum, Priscus, futurus, 

Si fio locuples sumque subito pollens. 
Quisquam possum puto mos (enall.} dico futurus !

99. But neither the woods of the Medians, that most fertile land, 
Nor the celebrated Ganges, and the river Mermus thick with its golden,

Nor all Panchaia rich in soils producing frankincense.

Nee pulcher Ganges, el auro turbidus Herruus, 
Laus Italia contendo, non Bactra, neque Indi, 
Omnis et thurifer Panchaia dives arena. 

100. But here in Italy are no ravening tigers, nor the savage race of 
lions ; Nor do poisonous herbs deceive the wretched people who gather 
them. Neither does the scaly serpent here sweep his immense folds 
along the ground, nor to a vast Length extended, curl himself into 
a circle. 

At rabidus tigris absum, et ssevus semen (enall.} leo; 

nee miserandus dccipio aconitum, qui lego, (enall.) 

Nee rapio maximus orbis per terra, neque tantus 
Squameus in spira tractu sui colligo serpcns. 

101. Let him commend the repasts of a short meal, and salutary 
Justice, and the laws, and peace with her open gates. Let him

Is dapes commendo mensa exiguus, et (enall.} saluber 
Justitia, j'wsque, et apertus otium (enall.} porta.

Ut redeo infelix, desero fortuna arnbitiosus. 

102. But he calls the land his own, as far as where the planted 
poplar Prevents by fixed boundaries the disputes of neighbors ; as 
though Any thing could be his own, which, in a moment of the fleet- 
ing hour, At one time by solicitation, at another by purchase, at an- 
other by violence, at another by the last fate of man, May change its 
masters, and fall into another's power. 

Sed appello usque stium, qua populus adsitus certus 

Refugio limes vicinus (enall.} jurgium ; tanquam

Muto (enall.'} dominus, et in alter (enall.} jus (enall.} cedo. 

103. Neither should you fear that his mind, becoming, perhaps from 
his regard to futurity, Somewhat averse to the duties of life, should re- 
fuse to bear labors, And encounter dangers, if the public good should 
require it. This indifference to worldly things Rather makes the man 
free and vigorous, and in all things that he undertakes Bold and invin- 
cible ; and it strengthens him in all difficulties. 



Nee timeo quidem nefortasse, ad munia vita 
Segnior, hinc mens recuso perfero (enall.) labor, 
El periculum (sync.)fero, voco si publicus usus. 
Liber et erectus potius, res et in agendus 
Fortis vir invictusque cfficio, casus et per cunctus 
Roboro externus rerum hie despicientia. 


323, 1. Ellipsis is the omission of some word or words in 
a sentence. 

Many of the lines in the following exercises will require an altera- 
tion in the arrangement of the words, as well as the introduction of the 
figure ellipsis, before they can be formed into verses. 

1. O Britain, fairest abode of liberty, let this happier lot be thine, To 
escape both the fate of Rome and the guilt of Rome. 

Sum tibi, o sedes pulchorrimus libertas, melior sors, 

nescio et fatum (enall.) Roma et crimen (enall.) Roma. 

2 Gray hairs also have not yet spoiled the beauty of my jetty locks, 
Neither has crooked old age with a slow step approached. 

Et nondum canus laedo meus niger capillus, 
Nee curvus senecta venio tardus pes. 

3. The poplar tree is the most acceptable tree to Hercules, the 
vine the most acceptable to Bacchus, The myrtle the most accepta-

Myrtus gratissimus formosus Venus, Phrebus sum gratissimus suus

7. The brooks are dry ; the meadows are despoiled of their beauty 
by the mildew ; And nothing that felt the blast survives. I saw the 
flowers fade, I saw the roses die, and I saw the lilies languish. 

Rivus deficio ; pratuin squaleo rubigo ; 

Et nihil afflatus vivo. Video ligustrum palleo, 

Expire rosa video, decresco lilium et ego video. 

8. A garden adorned with odoriferous flowers was near, Divided as

Sectus secundum humus rivus aqua sonans lene : 

Illic Tarquinius latens suus filius (synon.) mandatum 
Accipio, et ille meto virga summus lilium. 

9. When the messenger returned, and reported that the lilies were 
cut down, His son exclaimed, " I understand the orders of my father." 
Nor was there any delay. The chiefs of the city Gabii being slain, 
The defenceless walls are surrendered to his generals. 

Ut nuncius redeo, (sync.} decussusque lilium dico, 

Natus (synon.) suus aio, " Ego agnosco jussum meus parens." 

Nee ullus rnora sum. Princeps ex urbs Gabina ca3sus, 
Moenia nudus trader suus dux. 

10. As many shells as the sea-shores have, as many blossoms as the 
fragrant beds of roses have, As many seeds as the sleep-bringing poppy 
has, By so many distressing things am I afflicted ; which if 1 should 
attempt to number, 1 might as well attempt to tell the number of the 
waves of the Icarian sea. 

Litus quot concha habeo, quot flos rosarium amoenus habeo, 

Quotve granum soporifer papaver habeo, 
Tot adversus res premor; qui comprehendo (sync.) si ego conoi, 

Ego conor dico numerus Icarius aqua. 

11. Man alone, who is capable of acquiring knowledge, who has an 
ardent desire Of tracing out the causes and mutual relations of things, 
Enters on a vain pursuit; for death hangs over him with sable wings, 
And arrests him in the midst of his journey as he is hurrying on. 

Homo solus, qui sum sagax scire, cui sum summus cupido 
Scrutari causa et res foedus mutuus, 
Ingredior vanus iter ; namque immineo is niger ala, 
Et in medius cursus intercludo is iens mors. 

12. Whither do you madly haste ? Although you should possess 
each Ocean, and although Lydia should pour forth for you her golden 
streams. And although the throne of Croesus and the diadem of Cyrus 
should be added to these riches, You never will be rich, you never will 
be satisfied with gain. 


Quo vesane tu ruo? Tu tenen uterque licebit oceanus, 

et Ljdia laxo tu suus rutilus fons, 

Et solium Croesus Cyrusque tiara jungor, 
Sum nunquam dives, nunquam satior quosstus. 

13. He, who is always desiring more, is always poor; contented 
with a little, honorably obtained, Fabricius despised the gifts of kings; 
And the consul Serranus labored at the heavy plough ; And an humble 
cottage held the heroic Curii. 

Ille, quicunque cupio, sum semper inops ; contentus honesto 
Parvo, Fabricius sperno munus rex ; 
Sudoque Serranus consul gravis aratrum ; 
Et angustus casa tego pugnax Curii. 

14. When I ask you for money without security, you say, " I have 
not any money ; " Yet you, the same person, have money, if my field 
is security for me. O Thelesinus, that which you will not trust to 
me, an old friend, You trust to my lands and to my trees. Behold, 
Carus has arrested you as a criminal; let my field help you. Do you 
ask for a companion in your exile ? let my field go with you. 

Cum ego rogo nummus (ena?l.) de tu (cna/L) sine pignus, 
" Ego non habeo nummus," inquio ; 

Tu idem homo habeo nummus, si pro ego spondeo meus agellus. 
Is qui non credo ego, vetus sodalis, Thelesinus, 

Colliculus meus credo arborque meus. 
Ecce, Carus defero tu reus ; meus agellus tu adsum. 

Tu qutcro comes exilium ? meus agellus eo. 


The words printed in Italics in the following exercises are substan- 
tives, which either require epithets to be added to them, or which have 
adjectives connected with them that may be omitted. A different 
arrangement of the words will be required in almost every line. 

1. But you, O robbers and wolves, spare this little flock : Your prey 
should be taken from a herd. 

At tu, furque lupusque, parco exiguus pecus : 
prteda sum petendus de grex.

Cosleste signum Minerva credor 
Desiluisse in altus jugum Iliacus urbs.

of sleep, poppies in abundance grow, And herbs innumerable; from

Et (synon.) innumerus herba ; qui de lac sopor 
Nox lego, et humidus per terra (enall.) spargo. 

6. Thus the violence of the winds, and the rain from which they

stipula (enall.) tectum ponere, 

et claudo arctus sedes (enall.) limus. 

7. Nor are the wives of the East less renowned in fame : Neither 
with tears, nor with female cries, Do they deplore their husbands'

are consumed in the same devouring flames with their lifeless hus- 

Nee Eous uxor minus celebror fama : 

Ille non lacrymse, non foemineus ululatus, 

Ploro fatum (enall.) vir ; (sync.) verurn, mirabilis dicor, 

Conscendoque rogus,flammaque (enall.) vorax voror idem. 

8. The echoing wood resounds with the songs of birds, and every 
Shrub and every grove rings with music : The blackbirds also join 
their tuneful notes, and the doves their plaintive sounds; The har- 
monious lark from above pours forth its strains. 

Sylva vocalis resono chorus avis, atque (synon.) omnis 
Virgultum et ornnis nemus ferveo harmonia : 

Et merula misceo numerus gemitusque palumbes ; 
Canorus alauda addo desuper modus. 

9. He, who once refused to the needy worthless fragments of food, 
Now lives himself on food obtained by begging. Fortune wanders 
about with uncertain steps, And in no place remains constant and

Nunc pascor ipse cibus mendicatus. 
Fortuna vago (synon.) ambiguus passus, 

Et permaneo (enall.) certus tenaxque in nullus locus. 


10. But virtue does not produce these evils : we confidently assert, 
That if every one faithfully performed her sacred duties, Nothing 
would appear more desirable than sacred virtue; then would the 
golden ages return : But it is not our lot to live in a golden age. 

At virtus non parturio hie malum : immo fateor, 

Si quisque perago suus munia fideliter, sum 

Nilril (sync.) potior sacer virtus ; jam turn redeo aureus 

Sueculum : verum non contigit vivo aureus (synccr.) oevuin. 

11. In the shady vales in the midst of Ida, there is a place Retired, 
and abounding with oaks and pitch trees, A place, which has never 
been touched by the mouth of the ox, Nor of the sheep, nor of the goat 
delighting in rocks. 

In nemorosus vallis medius Idae, sum locus 
Devius, et piceus atque (synon.) ilex frequens, 

Qui nee ovis, nee capella amans rupes, (synon.) 
Nee carpor os bos. 

12. Nor, O wicked man, while life remains, are you free from pain- 
ful punishments: Although you may deceive mortal men, yet you can- 
not fly from yourself; The avenging furies disquiet you ; care, a 
harassing attendant, preys on you, And dwells as a tormentor in your 
conscience, which is still mindful of your crimes. 

Nee, improbus, dum vita maneo, des nullas serumnosas pcenas : 
Quanquam fallo mortal is homo, tarnen haud ipse effugio tu ; 
Dirae ultrix tu agito ; tu cura remordeo, comes ssevus, 
memorque sub pectus habito vindex. 

13. The horse obeys the reins in time, And receives with a quiet 
mouth the hard bits. The fierceness of the African lions is subdued 
by time, Nor does that savage wildness remain in their disposition, 
which was once in it. 

Equus obedio (synon.) habena tempus, 

Et recipio (synon.) placid us os durus lupus. 
Ira Prenus leo cohibeor (synon.) tempus, 

Nee feiusferitas permaneo (c.nall.) animus, qui sum ant6. 

14. Thus the mourning nightingale bemoans under the shade of a 
poplar Her lost young, which a cruel countryman, Discovering them 
in their nest, had stolen unfledged ; thus she Grieves through the dark 
night, and, sitting on a bough, her song Renews, and fills the places 
around with her piteous complaints. 

Quails mcerens philomela sub umbra populus (enall.) 

Queror amissus foetus, qui durus arator, 

Cernens (synon.} nidus, implumis detraho; at ille 

JY0z caecus fleo, ramusque sedens, carmen 

Integro, et impleo late locus suus (cllip.) moestus questus. 

15. She fears all things and she hopes for nothing: thus anxious, 
as she is returning with food, is the bird, Who has left her young in 
a lowly shrub, And thus, while absent from them, is she apprehen- 
sive of many evils; She fears lest the wind should have torn her 


nest from the tree, Lest her young should be exposed as a plunder 
to man, or a prey to serpents. 

Omnis (syrwn.*) paveo speroque nihil : sic ales asstuo, 

Qui commitio foetus humilis ornus, 

Allaturus cibus, (enall.~) et plurimus cogito absens ; 

Ne ventus discutio nidus arbor, 

Ne furtum pateo homo, neu coluber praeda. 

16. A moth is flying around my burning candle ; And now, and 
now again it almost burns its little wings. Often with my hand I 
keep it back when approaching, and " O moth," I cry, " what 
great desire to die urges you on?" Still it returns; and, although 
I strive to save it, It perseveres, and rushes into the flames and into 

Musca volito circum meus exurens lucerna ; 

Alaque parvus suus amburo jam prope, jamque. 
Ssepe repello manus is (ellip.) veniens; et " Musca," 

Inquam, " quis tantus libido morior irnpello tu? " 
Ille tamen redeo ; et, quanquam conor (synon.) servo, 

Insto, et irruo (enaU.) in flamma exitiumque. 

323 ? 2, (4.) Periphrasis is a circuitous mode of expression. 

The words in the following exercises, which are enclosed within pa- 
rentheses, are examples of the periphrasis, and are to be substituted 
for the corresponding word in the line. When two or more Italic 
words occur in a line, they must be omitted, and the meaning, which 
they are designed to convey, expressed by one word only. When 
there is only one word in a line printed in Italics, it is intended to 
be omitted, and its meaning expressed by a periphrasis. 

1. Thus does the lioness rage when confined in a narrow den, And 
breaks her fierce teeth by biting her prison. 

Sic leaena fremo (fera nobilis) in claustrum (enalL) parvus abditus, 
Et rabidus dens frango carcere praemorso. 

2. Whither shall I be carried ? where shall I seek comfort in my

Jam nullus anchora (non ulla) teneo) meus (enall.) ratis. 

3. Farewell, ye mossy fountains, ye woods, And ye Muses, and 
the dreams of fabled Pindus.

Musaque (Aonides dese,) et somnium Pindus mendax. 


4. Not far hence herds of cattle wander through the spacious 
fields, And sheep roam over the joyful pastures. 

Nee procul hinc armentum vagor (synon.) per latus ager, 
Ovisque (lanigeri greges) persulto laetus pabulum. 

5. Then also the birds in safety flew, And the hare wandered 
fearlessly in the midst of the fields, Nor had their easy credulity 
hung on the hook the inhabitants of the rivers. 

Tune et avis (movere pennas per aera) tuto (enall.) volo, 

Et lepus impavide (enall.) erro in medius ager, 

Nee sua credulitas fluminum incolas suspendo hamus. 

6. The astonished cultivators of the fields see rugged brakes 
Sweetly blooming with roses, arid hear with surprise among parched 
Bands The noisy murmurings of a river. 

Attonitus cultores agrorum video dumetum incultus 
Suaviter (enall.) rubens (enall.) rosa, sitiensque inter arena 
Miror garrulus rivus (epithet") murmur. 

7. Arrayed in their shining arms, thrice around the blazing Piles 
they ran ; thrice the mournful funeral fire They encompassed on 
their steeds, and yelled aloud. 

Ter, cinctus nitens (synon.) arma, circum accensus 
Rogus curro ; (enall.) ter nuestus funereus (enall.) ignis 
Lustro in suus (ellip.) equus, ululoque (ululatus ore dedere.) 

8. O robin, a guest most welcome to every house, Whom the 
severity of the cold compels to seek the aid of man, That thou mayat 
escape the frosts of the wintry air, O fly hither, And dwell in safety 
under my roof. 

Rubecula (hospes avis,) conviva domus quivis gratissimus, 
Qui inclementiaf rigor is cogo quaero homo (enall.) opem, 

Hue O confugio, ut fugio frigus hibernus coelum, 
et vivo tutus (synon.) sub meus lar. 

9. That thou mayst relieve thy hunger, food in my window I will 
place every day; For by experience I have learned that thou wilt 
repay with a grateful Song whatsoever food any kind hand may 

Unde relevo tuus esuries, alimentum (enall.) fenestra 
Appono quotidie (quoties itque reditque dies ;) 

Etenim usus edisco quod rependo alimentum (enall.) gratus 
Cantus, quicunque dono (synon.) bonus (synon.) manus. 

10. In the early spring, when the warm breezes gently blow, And 
when on every tree its vernal honors bloom, Thou mayst freely re- 
turn to the groves and revisit the sylvan shades, In which music 
delightful and equal to thine resounds. 

Ver novus, cum tepidus aura molliter spiro, 
Et suus honos (enall.) verno in quivis arbor, 

Pro libitu ad nemus (synon.) redeo sylvestriaque tecta revise, 
In (ellip,} aui musica laetus parque tuus resono. 


11. But if again, but if by chance again, the cold Should bring 
back to my house my beloved bird, Be thou, O returning bird, be 
thou mindful to repay with a grateful song Whatsoever food any kind 
hand may bestow. 

Sin iterum, sin forte iterum,frigus 

Reduco ad rneus tectum (enalL.) carus (synon.) avis, 
Sum, redux, memor sum rependo gratus cantus 

Pabulum, (enall.) quicunque benignus manus do. 

12. The Molossian hounds fondly caressed the hare then free from 
danger, And the tender young of the sheep drew near the wolf; The 
deers played in peace with the tigress ; The stags feared not the 
African lion. 

Molossi blande (enall.} foveo tutus (synon.) lepus, 

Tenerquc ovis f&tus appropinquo (synon.) vicinum prsebuit latus 

lupus ; 
Concors dama cum tigris (epithet) ludo ; 

Cervus non pertimesco (synon.) Massylus juba. 

13. From you shall descend the brave Achilles, Known to his ene- 
mies not by his back but by his undaunted front, Who, always a 
victor in the uncertain contest of the race, Shall outstrip the speed 
of the swift deer.

Qui, persoepe victor vagus certamen cursus, 

Prseverto (flammea vestigia) celeritas cerva celer. 

14. But me first above all things may the sweet Aonian goddesses 
receive into their favor, Whose sacred symbols, smit with ardent 
love to them, I bear ; And may they show me the paths of heaven, 
and the starry orbs, The various eclipses of the orb of Phoebus, and 
the labors of the moon. 

Ego vero primum ante omnis dulcis Jlonides dece, 

Qui sacra fero, magnus (synon.) amor percussus, 

Accipio ; ccelum atque (synon.) via, et sidcreos orbes monstro, 

Varius defectus Phosbi orbis, lunaque labor. 

15. The god of fire fought against Troy, the god of music for 
Troy ; The mother of ./Eneas was friendly to the Trojan people, the 
goddess of war was unfriendly. The sister and wife of Jupiter, 
favorable to Turnus, hated yEneas ; yet he was secure under the 
protection of Venus. Often did the fierce ruler of the sea attack 
Ulysses ; Often did Pallas rescue him from the brother of her father 

Ignis deus sto in Troja, musiccc prcescs pro Troja; 

JEneoE, mater sum aequus Trojano popitlo, iniqua belli dea. 
Proprior Turnus, Jovis soror et conjux ./Eneas oderat ; 

Tamen ille sum tutus numen Venus. 
Ssepe ferox pelagi domitor Ulysses (epithet) peto * 

Ssepe Pallas (synon.) svmspatris fratre eripio 


16. And as a ravenous wolf both seizes on and carries away 
Through the cornfields, through the woods, the sheep, which has 
not gone into the fold, So, if the hostile barbarian finds any one in 
the plains Not yet received within the city, he hurries him away ; 
He then either follows him as a captive, and receives chains cast 
upon his neck, Or falls by a poisoned arrow. 

Utque rapax pecus, qui non intro (se texit) ovili, 

Per seges, (synon.) per sylva, lupus feroque trahoque, 

Sic, si qui, acceptus (synon.) nondum (portarum sepe) oppidum, 
Barbarus hostis in campus reperio, (cpenth.) ago ; 

Aut captus sequitur ille, (ellip.) conjectusque catena (synon.) col- 

lum accipio, 
aut pereo (synon.) venenatus telum (virus habente.) 

17. So when a shepherd, while he is collecting branches of trees 
in the woods, Has wrapped among the leaves a serpent asleep with 
cold and stiff with frost, And without having seen it, has brought it 
to the fire ; There is no delay ; scarcely has it felt the flames near 
it, When the serpent both lifts up its head, and now also turns 
around its fiery eyes, And moves erect through the house with its 
forked tongue. 

Sicut ubi, dum arborum brachia colligo in sylva, anguis 

Frigor sopitus, pastor, rigens brumaque, 

Frons implico, appono (synon.) ignisque inscius ; 

Nullus est mora ; propiiis vix perfero flamma, cum (et jam) 

Attolloque suus (ellip.) caput, jamque lumen igneus torqueo, 

Perque tectum (synon.) mico arduus anguis (synon.) os trilinguis. 


The first twenty-two of the following exercises are designed to be 
literally translated into Latin verse : the words will require a different 
arrangement, but every word may stand in the same line in Latin, in 
which it is found in English. The remaining exercises are intended

introduced into the preceding or following verse. 

1. The lamb in company with the wolf (sociata lupo) shall gambol

stall, (prasepe.) 

2. Thus (qualid) the lilies hang down (dedinant) their withering 

(pallentes) stalks,

3. And now the morning star (Lucifer) fringed (stringebat) the lofty

4. And I feared all these things, because I knew (videbam) that I

7. Let him indeed (sank) receive the price (mercedem) of blood, and 

look as (et sic) 

Pale (palleat) as the man (ellip.) who has trodden on (pressit) a ser- 
pent with naked feet, (calcibus.) 

8. And now the sea began to redden (rubescebat) with the morning 

(ellip.) rays, and from the lofty sky ((Ether -e) 
The saffron Morn (lutea Aurora) arose in her rosy chariot, (bigis.) 

9. Drops (enall.) wear a stone hollow, (cavo ;) a ring is worn out (con- 

sumitur) by use ; 

And the crooked ploughshare is worn away (teritur) by the earth 
rubbing against it, (pressd.) 

10. You see that anger, lust, (libido,) vice, (scelus,) every where prevail, 


And deceit (fraus) counterfeiting friendship, and malignant 

And feuds, and treachery, (insidia,) and the snares (retia) of une- 
qual law. 

11. Around the tame tiger (mansueta tigri) flowery bands the sportive 


Boys in play (per ludum) shall cast, and serpents the wearied 
Limbs of the traveller shall refresh by licking them with their 

cold tongues, (recreabuntfrigore lingua.) 

12. The field by degrees shall grow yellow (flavescet) with soft ears 

of corn, (aristd,) 
And the blushing grape (rubens uva) shall hang on the rough (in- 

cultis) brambles, 
And hard oaks shall distil (sudabunt) dewy honey, (enall.) 

13. O sleep, thou (ellip.) rest (quies) of all (ellip.) things, O Sleep, 

thou gentlest (placidissime) of the gods, 
Thou peace of the mind, from whom care flies away, who the body 

(eorda,) by its (ellip.) daily 
Toils (ministeriis) exhausted (fessa,) dost refresh and recruit for 



14. Often, too, when the wind is rising, (vento irnpendente,) you will 

see stars 
Falling (labi) swiftly (enall.) from (ellip.) heaven, and, through 

the shades (umbram) of night, 
Long trains (tractus) of flame (enaU.) gleaming (albescere) behind 

them, (a tergo.) 

15. Under this tree the dewy (madidi) Fauns (Fauni) often danced, (lu- 

And their (ellip.) pipe heard in the night (fistula sera} alarmed 

the quiet family, (domum ;) 
And, while they fled (fugit) through the solitary (solus) fields 

from midnight Pan, (nocturnum Pana,) 

Often under this tree (fronde) a rural Dryad (Dryas) lay con- 
cealed, (latuit.) 

16. O mossy fountains, and grass (herba) more soft than sleep, (somno 

And the green arbute-tree, (arbutus,) that covers you with its thin 

(rard) shade, 
Keep ofTthe heat (solstitium) from my flock, (pccori;) now comes 

the summer 
Scorching ; now the buds swell on the vine, (cpit/ict.) 

17. Beneath a hedge, and often (nee rard) on the margin of a bank, 

there is a little 

Reptile, (the glow-ivorm,) which glitters by night, and lies con- 
cealed (latet) by day. 
Ye great, lay aside your pride, (fastus,) and no longer (nee) despise 

the lowly, 

Since even (ct) this little (minimum) reptile has something (el- 
lip.) which is splendid, (nitcat.) 

18. In early spring, when the snow (periph.) on the hoary mountains 
Is dissolved, and the crumbling (putris) glebe unbinds itself by 

the Zephyr, 

Then (periph.) under the deep-pressed (depresso) plough, let my 
ox begin 

To groan, and the ploughshare, worn bright (attritus) by the fur- 
row, begin (ellip.) to glitter. 

19. Illustrious souls ! if mortal things at all affect (quid tangunf) 

The inhabitants of heaven, (c&licolas,) if there is still with you 
(ellip.) any regard (cura) for the British race, 

I beseech you, renew (vos instaurate) our ancient vigor ; 

That, sloth (somno) being shaken off, we may at length aspire 
(nitamur) to noble things, (ardua,) 

Mindful of true virtue, and of our fathers' (avita:) fame. 

20. Thus the Lagean (Lagea) bark, while in the vast ocean like an 


It appeared, (conspecta,) struck against (illisit) the rocks, where 
the east wind, (epithet,) 


Scattering ruin around, (naufragium spargens,) blocks up (operif) 

the sea ; and now on the waters 
Both planks, (transtra,) and masts, and colors, (aplustria,) with 

(eltip.) the torn sail, 
And seamen, (epithet,) striving against (removentes) the waters, 


21. For some (pars) commit the dead body to the earth, 
And strew garlands on the tomb, and obsequies yearly 

Pay, as though the shades of the dead (manes') required such 

Others, (pars,) the funeral pile being in order raised, burn on it the 

bodies (artus) of the dead, (eliip.) 
And collect their ashes, and place them in the faithful urn. 

22. Their life was like the life (ellip.) of a beast, spent without any 

regularity ; (nullos agitato, per usus ;) 

They were a savage people, and destitute as yet of knowl- 
They had (ndrant) for houses leaves, for food (frugibus) herbs; 

Water, drunk out of their two hands, was their nectar. 
No ox panted under the curved ploughshare ; 

No land was under the cultivation (imperio) of the husband- 
man, (colentis.) 

23. Night had wrapped all things in darkness and in her silent shade, 

And deep sleep had seized on weary man. 

24. The birds were now singing, and the sun hastened from the east, 

To open with a purple smile the day. 

25. The shepherd guides his flocks; he now takes in his arms the 

tender lambs, 
And gives them, while cherished in his bosom, the sweetest 

He now seeks for the sheep that are lost, and brings back the 


26. The third morning had from the heavens removed the cold shades 

of night, (ellip.) 
When they sorrowfully collected together (ruebant) on the hearths 

the high-raised (altus) ashes and 
The bones intermingled with each other, and placed over them a 

warm mound of earth. 

27. Begone, ye sleepless cares ; begone, complaints, 

And the host of envy , with her " jealous leer malign ; " (transfer so 

tortilis Idrquo ;) 
Nor thou, O cruel calumny, bring hither thy envenomed scoffs, 

(anguiferos rictus.) 

28. Thus (talis) the Parthian lord leads from the Tigris 
His barbarian troops, and proudly adorns his head 
With regal chaplets, gems, and rich attire. 



29. For now Eurus collects his strength from the purple east ; 

Now Zephyr approaches hasting from the west, (sero vespere 


Now cold Boreas rages (bacchatur) from the dry north ; (Arcto ;) 
Now the south wind joins the contest with an opposing front. 

30. Androcles, who had fled as an exile from the anger of his master, 

Wandered over the parched sands of Libya. 
At length, when wearied and exhausted by his journey, (Lahore vi- 

A secret cave presented itself to him at the side of a rock. 

31. He enters the cave ; and scarcely had he committed his wearied 

limbs to sleep, 

When suddenly an immense lion roars in the cavern. 
It lifted up its wounded foot, and, uttering a mournful cry, 

It implored, as well as it was able to implore, the assistance of 

32. The fugitive slave, struck with the novelty of the circumstance, 

and hesitating with fear, 
Scarcely at length moves his trembling hands to the assistance 

of the lion; (cllip.) 
But, after having examined the thorn, (for a thorn stuck in the 

He carefully and tenderly draws it out of the lion's foot. 

33. Now again he roams through the sylvan shades, and the groves j 

and, like an attentive host, 

Brings to the cave for Androcles constant food. 
The man, as the lion's guest, sits down to the feasts prepared for 

him, (dlip.) 
And hesitates not to partake of the undressed provisions. 

34. But who could bear to live thus solitarily in a cheerless desert ? 

(ticdia descrtcc vita.) 

Scarcely could the rage of a revengeful master be more ter- 
The slave at length resolves to expose his devoted head to certain 

And again to seek his paternal abode. 

35. Here he is given up by his master ; and, doomed to afford a cruel 

entertainment to the people, 

He stands in the theatre as a wretched criminal. 
By chance the same lion that he had assisted in the desert, 

(cllip.) fierce and raging with hunger, rushes from the 

And looks with an astonished countenance on his physician. 

36. He looks at him, and, as an old friend recognizing his former 

He lies down at his well-known feet caressing him, (blandulus.^ 


This prodigy (ellip.) was the work of nature alone : she alone, who 

gave to the lion all his rage, 
She alone induced him to repress it. 

37. The dove, that has been wounded by thy talons, O hawk, 

Is alarmed at the least rustling of a wing. 
The lamb, that has been at any time rescued from the jaws of a 

rapacious wolf, 
Never dares again to wander from the fold. 

38. Happy is the man, who has spent his days in his paternal fields, 

Whom the same roof shelters (vidct) when an old man, that 

sheltered him when a boy ; 
Who leaning on his staff, on the same sand on which he once 

crept as a child, (ellip.) 
Relates the long history (scecuhi) of his single habitation. 

39. Fortune has not led him through the innumerable vicissitudes of 

life ; (vario tumultu;) 

He has neither as a traveller (periph.) tasted of foreign waters; 
Nor as a merchant has he feared the seas, nor as a soldier the 

trumpet's sound ; 
Neither has he undergone the contentions of jarring courts of 


40. The lofty oak he (qui) remembers when it hung as an acorn 

(ellip.') on a little branch, 

And he sees the grove of the same age with himself, with him- 
self grow old. 

But yet unbroken is his strength, and the third generation sees 

A grandsire still robust with vigorous limbs. 

41. For the men add to the noise (sonant) by their clamor, the ropes 

by their rattling, 
The heavy waters by the dashing of the waves against each ot ner, 

(undarum incursu,} and the sky by peals of thunder. 
The sea ascends in mighty waves, and seems to reach i he 

And sprinkles the contiguous clouds with briny dew. 

42. May I never so misapply the powers of my mind, 

As to become the flatterer of kings and the promoter of vice ; 
Nor may I spend the short space, that I can steal from the 

In fawning and cringing (caudam submittam) like a fearful dog. 

43. There is near the Cimmerians (Cimmcrios) a cave in a long re- 


Formed of a hollow mountain, the palace and retired abode of 
lazy Sleep ; 


Into this cave the sun, whether rising, or on the meridian, (medi~ 

usve^ or setting, 
Is never able to penetrate with his rays. Fogs, mixed with 

Are exhaled from the ground, and a glimmering (crepuscula) of 

dubious light. 

44. Again, to show what virtue, and what wisdom can accomplish, 
Homer (ellip.} has exhibited Ulysses to our view as an instructive 


Who, having subdued Troy, viewed with an observant eye the 

And manners of many nations, and, 

While seeking for himself and his associates the means of re- 
turning over the wide ocean to their own land, (ellip.) 

Endured many hardships, yet could never be overwhelmed by the 
waves of adversity. 

45. See lofty Lebanon his head advance ! 

See nodding forests on the mountain dance ! 

46. Ah me ! the blooming pride of May (Maii) 

And that of beauty are but one : 
A.t noon both flourish bright and gay ; 
At evening fade, are pale and gone. 

47. When winds approach, the vexed sea heaves around; 
From the bleak mountain comes a hollow sound; 
The loud blast whistles o'er the echoing shore; 
Rustle the murmuring woods, the rising billows roar. 

48. So the sweet lark, high poised in air, 

Shuts close his pinions to his breast, 
If chance his mate's shrill note he hear, 
And drops at once into her nest. 

4 ). Nations behold, remote from reason's beams, (ellip.) 
Where Indian Ganges rolls his sandy streams, 
Of life impatient, rush into the fire, 
And willing victims to their gods expire, 
Persuaded (percussa cupidine ccccd) the freed soul to regions flies, 

(scdes iibifata dedere quictas,') 
Blest with eternal spring and cloudless skies. 

50. Subdued at length, he owns Time's heavier tread, 
Bowed with the weight of ages on his head : 
So on some mountain's top the lofty pine, 
With years and tempests worn, in slow decline 
Droops to the chilling rains, the stormy gales, 
While wasting age its trembling boughs assails.
