“After the battle and the attack were over at Troy,
The town beaten down to smoking brands and ashes,
That man enmeshed in the nets of treachery – the truest
Of men – was tried for treason; I mean
Aeneas, the high-born, who, with his noble kinsmen,
Conquered many countries and made themselves masters
Of almost all the wealth of the Western Isles.”
