STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF AENEAS

Meanwhile there came a vision to Aeneas, who, now that Hector was dead, was the chief hope of the men of Troy. It was Hector's self that he seemed to see, but not as he had seen him coming back rejoicing with the arms of Achilles, or setting fire to the ships, but as he lay after Achilles had slain him. To him said Aeneas, not knowing what he said, "Why have you tarried so long? Much have we suffered waiting for you! And what grief has marked your face? And whence these wounds?"
To all this the spirit answered nothing, but said, groaning, "Fly, son of Venus, fly, and save yourself from these flames. The enemy is within the walls, and Troy is about to perish. If any hand could have saved our city, this hand of mine would have done so. You are now the hope of Troy.
Take, then, her gods, and flee with them for company, seeking the city that you shall one day build across the sea."
The alarm of battle came nearer and nearer, and Aeneas, waking from sleep, climbed upon the roof and looked upon the city. As a shepherd stands and sees a fierce flame sweeping before the south wind over the cornfield or a flood rushing down from the mountains, so he stood. And as he looked, the citadel sank down in the fire, and the neighboring houses blazed forth, till the sea close by shone with the light. Then he girded on his armor, thinking perhaps that he might yet gain some place of safety, or at least that he might avenge himself on the enemy or find honor in death.
But as he was coming out of his house, he met the priest of Apollo, who cried to him, "0 Aeneas, the glory is departed from Troy, and the Greeks have the mastery in the city. Armed men are coming forth from the great horse of wood, which Sinon has treacherously opened, and thousands also swarm in at the gates." As he spoke, others came
