STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF AENEAS

not that I am a Greek, Sinon by name. I call you to witness, ye everlasting fires, that I break my faith with the Greeks for a just cause. Know then, King Priam, the horse of wood is a peace offering to Minerva, which the Greeks hoped to make so large that the men of Troy could not get it through their gates. For once within the walls of Troy, the image will bring woe to the Greeks and safety to Troy.''
These words greatly impressed the men of Troy, and as they pondered on them, lo! the gods sent still another marvel to deceive them. For while Laocoon, the priest of Neptune, was slaying a bull at the altar of his god, two ser-pents came across the sea from Tenedos. Their heads and necks, on which were thick manes of hair, rose high above the waves, and many scaly coils trailed behind in the waters. As they reached the land, they still sped forward. Their eyes were as red as blood and blazed with fire, and their forked tongues hissed aloud with rage.
Then all the men of Troy grew pale with fear and fled away, but the serpents turned not aside this way or that, going straight to where Laocoon stood. First they wrapped themselves about his little sons, one serpent about each, and began to devour them. When the father took a sword and tried to rescue his children, the serpents seized him and bound him fast with their coils. Twice they encircled his
body and his neck, lifting their heads high. All the while he strove to tear them away with his hands, and he did not cease to cry aloud horribly. When their work was done, the two serpents glided to the temple of Minerva and hid themselves beneath the feet and the shield of the goddess.
Then said the men one to another, "Lo! the priest Laocoon has been judged according to his deeds; for he cast his spear against this holy thing, and now the gods have slain
