Beginners Latin Course: 3. Adventures of Hercules(2), 42 Cacus Steals the Oxen

42 Cacus Steals the Oxen

Brevi tempore ad flumen Tiberim venit. Tum tamen nulla erat urbs in eo loco, Roma enim nondum condita erat.

Hercules itinere fessus constituit ibi paucos dies morari, ut se ex laboribus recrearet.

Haud procul a valle ubi boves pascebantur spelunca erat, in qua Cacus, horribile monstrum, tum habitabat.

Hic speciem terribilem praebebat, non modo quod ingenti magnitudine corporis erat, sed quod ignem ex ore exspirabat.

Cacus autem de adventu Herculis famam acceperat; noctu igitur venit, et dum Hercules dormit, quattuor pulcherrimorum boum abripuit.

Hos caudis in speluncam traxit, ne Hercules e vestigiis cognoscere posset quo in loco celati essent.
