Terms in this set (11)
Aurora interea miseris mortalibus almam extulerat lucem referens opera atque labores:
Meanwhile Dawn had raised up her kindly light for wretched mortals bringing back work and toil:
iam pater Aeneas, iam curvo in litore Tarchon constituere pyras.
Now father Aeneas, now Tarchon, had erected pyres on the curved shore.
huc corpora quisque suorum more tulere patrum,
Here, in accordance with the custom of their ancestors, each brought the bodies of their people,
subiectisque ignibus atris conditur in tenebras altum caligine caelum.
And as the murky fires were lit beneath, the high heavens were shrouded in darkness by smoke
ter circum accensos cincti fulgentibus armis decurrere rogos, ter maestum funeris ignem lustravere in equis ululatusque ore dedere.
Three times they went in procession around the pyres they had lit, clad in their shining armour, three times they circled around the mournful funeral fire on horseback, and gave lamentations from their mouths
spargitur et tellus lacrimis, sparguntur et arma, it caelo clamorque virum clangorque turbarum.
And the earth was sprinkled with their tears, their armour was sprinkled too, the cries of men, and the blare of trumpets, went up to the sky
hic alii spolia occisis derepta Latinis coniciunt igni, galeas ensesque decoros frenaque ferventesque rotas;
At this point some flung onto the fire spoils stripped from murdered Latins, helmets and handsome swords, bridles and red-hot chariot wheels;
pars munera nota, ipsorum clipeos et non felicia tela.
others, well known offerings, their shields, and their luckless weapons.
multa boum circa mactantur corporta Morti, saetigerosque sues raptasque ex omnibus agris in flammam iugulant pecudes.
Round about many bodies of cattle were sacrified to Death, and they cut the throats over the flames of bristling boars and flocks seized from all the fields.
tum litore tot ardentes spectant socios semustaque servant busta,
Then, they watched their comrades burning all along the shore, and kept watch over the half burnt pyres
Neque avelli possunt, nox umida donec invertit caelum stellis ardentibus aptum.
and they could not be torn away from them until the humid night turned round the sky studded with blazing stars.
