Vergil, Aeneid V 664-679

Nūntius Anchīsae ad tumulum cuneōsque theātrī

incēnsās perfert nāvīs Eumēlus, et ipsī665

respiciunt ātram in nimbō volitāre favīllam.

Prīmus et Ascanius, cursūs ut laetus equestrīs

dūcēbat, sīc ācer equō turbāta petīvit

castra, nec exanimēs possunt retinēre magistrī.

'Quis furor iste novus? Quō nunc, quō tenditis' inquit670

'heu miserae cīvēs? Nōn hostem inimīcaque castra

Argīvum, vestrās spēs ūritis. Ēn, ego vester

Ascanius!'—Galeam ante pedēs prōiēcit inānem,

quā lūdō indūtus bellī simulācra ciēbat.

Accelerat simul Aenēās, simul agmina Teucrum.675

Ast illae dīversa metū per lītora passim

diffugiunt, silvāsque et sīcubi concava fūrtim

saxa petunt; piget inceptī lūcisque, suōsque

mūtātae agnōscunt excussaque pectore Iūnō est.
