Trang 55 - Venus bewailed his death with much sorrow, and changed his blood, which was shed on the ground, into the flower anemone.
Trang 32 - ... that the Greeks constructed a wooden horse of prodigious size, in the body of which they concealed a number of armed men, and then retired towards the sea-shore, to induce the enemy to believe that the besiegers had given up the enterprise, and were about to return home.
