STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF AENEAS

and King Priam lay dead, Aeneas thought of his father, and his wife, Creusa, and of his little son, Aacanius, and remembered that he had left them at home without defense.
When he turned to seek them, the night was as clear as day, because cf the fires. Then he saw Helen sitting in a temple, where she had sought refuge, for she feared the men of Troy, to whom she had brought ruin and destruction, and not less her own husband, whom she had left. At that the wrath of Aeneas was kindled, and he said to himself, "Shall this evil woman return safe to Sparta.? Shall she see again her home and her daughter, while Trojan women are forced to be her handmaidens? Shall Troy be burned and King Priam slain, and she receive no harm? Not so; for though there be no glory to be won from such a deed, yet shall I satisfy myself by taking vengeance upon her for my kinsmen and my countrymen."
But while he was thinking these things, lo ! there appeared to him Venus, his mother, as he had never seen her before, fair and tall as only the dwellers in heaven be go hold her. Then Venus spoke thus: "What meaneth all this rage, my son? Hast thou no care for me? Hast thou forgotten thy father, Anchises, and thy wife, and thy little son? Surely the fire and the sword would have consumed them long ago if I had not cared for them and saved them.
It is not Helen-no, nor is it Paris, that hath laid low this great city of Troy, but the wrath of the gods. See now, for I will take away the mist that covers thy eyes-see how Neptune with his trident is overthrowing the walls and rooting up the city from its foundations; and how Juno stands with spear and shield within the gates of the city and calls fresh hosts from the ships; and how Minerva sits on the height with the storm-cloud about her, and how Jupiter
