This speech is delivered while the Trojans’ sudden preparations for departure are underway.

1     “Dissimulare etiam sperasti, perfide, tantum
2     posse nefas, tacitusque mea decedere terra?
3     Nec te noster amor, nec te data dextera quondam,
4     nec moritura tenet crudeli funere Dido?
5     Quin etiam hiberno moliris sidere classem,
6     et mediis properas Aquilonibus ire per altum,
7     crudelis? Quid, si non arva aliena domosque
8     ignotas peteres, et Troia antiqua maneret,
9     Troia per undosum peteretur classibus aequor?”

Aeneid 4. 305-313
