STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF AENEAS

before him. Anchises told him, too, of the glorious future of Rome and called by name the illustrious heroes who would make Rome great.
When the object of his visit to the Sibyl was accomplished, Aeneas set sail and steered along the coast in the direction of the promised land. Soon they came near an island where dwelt Circe, who by her enchantments changed men into beasts. As they passed the island, the Trojans heard with horror the roaring of lions and the howling of wolves, once human beings but now transformed into the shapes of savage animals. Aided, however, by favorable winds, they sped away from this dangerous spot, and soon they were near the end of their wanderings. For at dawn one morning they beheld a large grove, through which a pleasant river, tinted by the yellow sand, burst forth into the sea. This was the Tiber, on whose banks was to be founded in the distant future the city of Rome.
Latinus was king of this country. He had an only child, a daughter, Lavinia, who was now of an age to be married.
Many chiefs came as suitors, but none of these found favor, for King Latinus remembered'an oracle which said, "There shall come from beyond the sea a son-in-law who shall make great thy name from one end of heaven to the other."
Then there was waged a terrible war between the men of Troy and a native prince and suitor. But the gods gave victory to Aeneas, and he gained Lavinia, for his wife.
Upon the death of Latinus, Aeneas became king. But thoagh he was in possession of the long-promised land, his wars were not entirely over. In one of these conflicts Aeneas mysteriously disappeared and was seen no more. Some said he was drowned in the river, and that the Latins, not finding the body, supposed he had been taken up, to
