Virgil (70–19 B.C.)
 
(From Æneid)
Translated by C. P. Cranch

ANTENOR, from the midst of Grecian hosts
Escaped, was able, safe, to penetrate
The Illyrian bay, and see the interior realms
Of the Liburni; and to pass beyond
The source of the Timavus, issuing whence,        5
With a vast mountain murmur from nine springs,
A bursting flood goes forth, and on the fields
Crowds with resounding waters. Yet he here
Founded the walls of Padua, and built
The Trojan seats, and to the people gave        10
A name, and there affixed the arms of Troy.
Now, laid at rest, he sleeps in placid peace.
