GCSE Latin 2017, Virgil Aeneid 1, 5. Aeneid 1 272-304, Icebreaker 1

5. Aeneid 1 272-304, Icebreaker 1

272 hic iam regnabitur

ter centum annos totos

273 sub Hectorea gente,

donec Ilia regina sacerdos,

274 gravis Marte,

dabit partu geminam prolem.

275 inde Romulus laetus

fulvo tegmine lupae nutricis

276 excipiet gentem,

et condet Mavortia moenia,

277 que dicet Romanos

de suo nomine.

278 his ego pono nec metas

nec tempora rerum;

279 dedi imperium sine fine.

quin aspera Iuno,

280 quae nunc fatigat mare

terrasque caelumque metu,

281 referet consilia in melius,

mecumque fovebit Romanos

282 dominos rerum que togatam gentem.
