STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF AENEAS

again set sail. A north wind blew them, with many hardships, past the dangers of Scylla and Charybdis and to the land of the Cyclops. While seeking shelter in a harbor, they saw a wretched man as he ran along the shore, hailing the ships. His hair was unkempt, and his clothes in tatters and pinned together with thorns. He begged the men of Troy to have pity upon him, saying that he had been left behind in the cave when Ulysses and his companions escaped. For many months he had lived upon roots and berries, always in fear lest the giant should find him. Though he was a Greek, they were glad to help anyone who was in such a sad state, and they took him on board.
On the island of Sicily the old Anchises died and was buried with due funeral rites.
When Juno, who hated the men of Troy, saw them nearing their destination, she came to Aeolus, king of the winds, who keeps them under bolt and bar though they roar mightily within the mountain. To him she said, "Loose thy storms against a nation which I hate and which is now sailing over the seas." King Aeolus answered, "I obey thee, 0 Juno." So saying, he drove in with his spear the great doors of their prison, and all the winds rushed forth together, rolling great waves upon the shore.
King Neptune heard the tumult from where he sat at the bottom of the sea, and he looked forth and saw that the ships were scattered and the men of Troy in great peril. He said to the winds, "Begone, and tell your King that I have dominion over the sea and that I bid him keep to his rocks."
Then Aeneas and his companions, who were worn-out by the storm, made for the nearest shore, Africa, where they found a halbor. Aeneas reached this spot with only seven ships out of the twenty with which he had set sail.
