Urbs antiqua fuit, TYRII tenuere COLONI,
Karthago, Italiam contra Tiberinaque longe
ostia, DIVES OPUM studiisque asperrima belli;
quam Iuno FERTUR terris magis omnibus unam 15
POSTHABITA coluisse SAMO; hic illius arma,
hic currus fuit; hoc regnum dea gentibus esse,
si qua fata sinant, iam tum TENDITQUE FOVETQUE.
PROGENIEM sed enim Troiano a sanguine duci
audierat, TYRIAS olim quae verteret ARCES; 20
hinc populum late regem belloque superbum
venturum EXCIDIO LIBYAE: sic volvere Parcas.
