{a) Hac oratione habita, mirum in modum converses sunt omnium mentes, summaque alacritas et cupi- ditas belli gerendi innata est; princepsque decima legio per tribunes militum ei gratias egit, quod de se optimum judicium fecisset, seque esse ad bellum gerendum paratissimam confirmavit.

Deinde reliqure legiones cum tribunis militum et primorum ordinum centurionibus egerunt, uti Caesari satisfacerent: se nec unquam dubitasse neque timuisse neque de summa belli suum judi- cium, sed imperatoris esse existimavisse. Eorum satisfactione accepta, et itinere exquisite per Divitiacum, quod ex aliis ei maximam fidem ha- ' bebat, ut millium amplius quinquaginta circuitu

locis apertis exercitum duceret, de quarta vigilia, ut dixerat, profectus est. Septimo die, cum iter non intermitteret, ab exploratoribus certior factus est Ariovisti copias a nostris millibus passuum quattuor et viginti abesse.

Quum dea so paribus per coelum sustulit alis, Ingentemque fuga secuit sub nubibus arcum.

Pars spoliant aras, frondem ac virgulta facesque Conjiciunt. Furit immissis Vulcanus habenis Transtra per et remos et pictas abiete puppes.

Nuncius Anchisaj ad tumulum cuneosque theatri Incensas perfert naves Eumelus ; et ipsi Respiciunt atram in nimbo volitare favillam.


(c) In medio ramos annosaque brachia pandit Ulmus opaca, ingens; quam sedem Somnia vulgo Vana tenere ferunt, foliisque sub omnibus hterent.

Multaque praterea variarum monstra ferarum, Centauri in foribus stabulant, Scyllajque biformes, Et centumgeminus Briareus, ac bellua Lernaj' Horrendum stridens, flammisque armata Chima3ra, Gorgones, Harpyiieque et forma tricorporis umbrae.

Corripit hie suoita trepidus formidine feri-um iEneas, strictamque aciem venientibus offert;

E t , ni docta comes tenues sine corpore vitas Admoneat volitare cava sub imagine formoe, / Irruat, et frustra ferro diverberet umbras.

. These two nations no sooner heard of the departure of the Romans, than they considered the whole island as their own. One party crossed the Forth, in boats made of leather, while another . attacked with fury the wall which the Eritons had repaired for their defence, but which they abandoned on the first assault, flying like timorous deer, and leaving their country an entire prey to the enemy. The Scots and Picts made a dreadful havoc of the fugitives; and, meeting with no opposition, they laid all tho, south part of the island waste with fire and sword.. Famine fol- lowed, with all its horrid train. The miserable Britons; in this frightful extremity, had once more recourse to Rome.
