By 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,

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

A name, and there affixed the arms of Troy.

Now, laid at rest, he sleeps in placid peace.
