Beginners Latin Course: 3. Adventures of Hercules(2), 44 Hercules and Cacus

44 Hercules and Cacus

Hercules cum nullum alium introitum reperire posset, hoc saxum amovere conatus est, sed propter eius magnitudinem res erat difficillima.

Diu frustra laborabat neque quicquam efficere poterat; tandem tamen magno conatu saxum amovit et speluncam patefecit.

Ibi amissos boves magno cum gaudio conspexit; sed Cacum ipsum vix cernere potuit, quod spelunca repleta erat fumo quem ille more suo evomebat.

Hercules inusitata specie turbatus breve tempus haesitabat; mox tamen in speluncam inrupit et collum monstri bracchiis complexus est.

Ille etsi multum repugnavit, nullo modo se liberare potuit, et cum nulla facultas respirandi daretur, mox exanimatus est.
