ild.05 As two Lions whom their dam has reared in the depths of some mountain forest to plunder homesteads and carry off Sheep and Cattle till they get killed by the hand of man, so were these two vanquished by Aeneas, and fell like high pine trees to the ground.
ild.05 When they came to the part where the bravest and most in number were gathered about mighty Diomed, fighting like Lions or wild boars of great strength and endurance, there Juno stood still and raised a shout like that of brazen voiced Stentor, whose cry was as loud as that of Fifty men together.
ild.07 They then each of them drew out the spear from his shield, and fell on one another like savage Lions or wild boars of great strength and endurance: the son of Priam struck the middle of Ajax s shield, but the Bronze did not break, and the point of his dart was turned.
ild.10 When they had done praying to the daughter of great Jove, they went their way like two Lions prowling by night amid the armour and blood stained bodies of them that had fallen.
ild.13 As two Lions snatch a Goat from the hounds that have it in their fangs, and bear it through thick brushwood high above the ground in their jaws, thus did the Ajaxes bear aloft the body of Imbrius, and strip it of its armour.
ild.15 The Trojans, fierce as Lions, were still rushing on towards the ships in fulfilment of the behests of Jove who kept spurring them on to new deeds of daring, while he deadened the courage of the Argives and defeated them by encouraging the Trojans.
ild.16 As two Lions fight fiercely on some high mountain over the body of a stag that they have killed, even so did these two mighty warriors, Patroclus son of Menoetius and brave Hector, hack and hew at one another over the corpse of Cebriones.
ild.18 Two terrible Lions had fastened on a bellowing Bull that was with the foremost cows, and bellow as he might they haled him, while the Dogs and men gave chase: the Lions tore through the Bull s thick hide and were gorging on his blood and bowels, but the herdsmen were afraid to do anything, and only hounded on their Dogs; the Dogs dared not fasten on the Lions but stood by barking and keeping out of harm s way.
ild.22 There can be no covenants between men and Lions, Wolves and lambs can never be of one mind, but hate each other out and out an through.

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