ild.02 The Dardanians were led by brave Aeneas, whom Venus bore to Anchises, when she, Goddess though she was, had lain with him upon the mountain slopes of Ida.
ild.05 Sthenelus, son of Capaneus, saw them coming and said to Diomed, "Diomed, son of Tydeus, man after my own heart, I see two heroes speeding towards you, both of them men of might the one a skilful archer, Pandarus son of Lycaon, the other, Aeneas, whose sire is Anchises, while his mother is Venus.
ild.05 King Anchises stole the blood by putting his mares to them without Laomedon s knowledge, and they bore him Six foals.
ild.05 And now Aeneas, king of men, would have perished then and there, had not his mother, Jove s daughter Venus, who had conceived him by Anchises when he was herding Cattle, been quick to mark, and thrown her two white arms about the body of her dear son.
ild.05 Sons" of Priam," said he, "how long will you let your people be thus slaughtered by the Achaeans? Would you wait till they are at the walls of Troy? Aeneas the son of Anchises has fallen, he whom we held in as high honour as Hector himself.
ild.12 Aeneas the valiant son of Anchises led the fourth; he and the two sons of Antenor, Archelochus and Acamas, men well versed in all the arts of war.
ild.13 Then fell Alcathous son of noble Aesyetes: he was son in law to Anchises, having married his eldest daughter Hippodameia who was the darling of her father and mother, and excelled all her generation in beauty, accomplishments, and understanding, wherefore the bravest man in all Troy had taken her to wife him did Neptune lay low by the hand of Idomeneus, blinding his bright eyes and binding his strong limbs in fetters so that he could neither go back nor to one side, but stood stock still like pillar or lofty tree when Idomeneus struck him with a spear in the middle of his chest.
ild.17 The valiant son of Anchises was of the same mind, and the pair went right on, with their shoulders covered under shields of tough dry ox hide, overlaid with much Bronze.
ild.17 As some wooded mountain spur that stretches across a plain will turn water and check the flow even of a great river, nor is there any stream strong enough to break through it even so did the two Ajaxes face the Trojans and stern the tide of their fighting though they kept pouring on towards them and foremost among them all was Aeneas son of Anchises with valiant Hector.
ild.20 Nor did the son of Anchises escape the notice of white armed Juno, as he went forth into the throng to meet Achilles.
ild.20 The earth rang again under the tramp of their feet as they rushed towards each other, and two champions, by far the foremost of them all, met between the hosts to fight to wit, Aeneas son of Anchises, and noble Achilles.
ild.20 I have noble Anchises for my father, and Venus for my mother; the parents of one or other of us shall this day mourn a son, for it will be more than silly talk that shall part us when the fight is over.
ild.20 But Assaracus was father to Capys, and Capys to Anchises, who was my father, while Hector is son to Priam.
ild.23 The mare had been given to Agamemnon by echepolus son of Anchises, that he might not have to follow him to Ilius, but might stay at home and take his ease; for Jove had endowed him with great wealth and he lived in spacious Sicyon.

Arise Greece! from thy silent sleep, 2000 years long it is! Forget not, thy ancient culture, beautiful and marvelous it is!
