STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF AENEAS

All these things Jupiter beheld; and even as he beheld them; Venus came to him with a sad countenance and with her shining eyes dim with tears, and said, "0 great Father that rulest all things, how have Aeneas and the men of Troy sinned against thee, that the whole world is shut against them? Didst thou not promise that they should rule over land and sea? With this I was wont to comfort myself for the evil fate of Troy; but lo! this same fate follows them still; nor is there any end to their troubles."
Then her father kissed her, and answered smiling: "Fear not, my daughter; the fate of thy children cliangeth not. Thou shalt see the city for which thou lookest, and shalt receive thy son, the great-hearted Aelieas, into the heavens. Hearken, therefore, and I will tell thee things to come.
Aeneas shall make war with the nations of Italy, and shall subdue them, and build a city, and rule therein for three years. After thirty years the boy Ascanius shall change the place of his throne to Alba, where for three hundred years there shall be kings of the kindred of Hector. Then shall a priestess bear twin sons, whom a wolf shall nurse; and one of these, Romulus, shall build a city, dedicating it to his father, Mars, and shall call it Rome, after his own name. To this city have I given power without bound or end. Even Juno shall repent of her wrath and join with me in cherishing the men of Rome, so that they shall rule even over the land of the Greeks."
It came to pass on the next day that Venus appeared to Aeneas in the form of a maiden and told him the story of the people among whom he and his companions had come.
"The city, near by, is Carthage,"' she said, "and is peopled by men from Tyre. Dido is their Queen. Her brother was King of Tyre, a wicked man, and always eager to increase
