"Ille etiam patriis agmen ciet Ocnus ab oris Fatidicæ Mantûs et Tusci filius amnis, Qui muros matrisque dedit tibi. Mantua nomen."

The Amazon immediately singled out this well-dressed warrior, being seized with a woman's longing for the pretty trappings that he was adorned with: Totumque incauta per agmen, Faemineo praedae et spoliorum ardebat amore.

Earl Dowglas on a milk-white Steed, Most like a Baron bold, Rode foremost of the Company, Whose Armour shone like Gold. Turnus ut antevolans tardum precesserat agmen, &c.

But to proceed: Earl Douglas on a milk-white steed, Most like a baron bold, Rode foremost of the company, Whose armour shone like gold. Turnus, ut antevolans tardum praecesserat agmen, &c. Vidisti, quo Turnus equo, quibus ibat in armis Aurcus AEn. ix. 47, 269.
