Pagina 364 - And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock. It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God: and it shall become a spoil to the nations.
Pagina 51 - Varia adhortatio erat in exercitu inter tot homines, quibus non lingua, non mos, non lex, non arma, non vestitus habitusque, non causa militandi eadem esset.
Pagina 219 - Utque volans alte raptum cum fulva draconem fert aquila implicuitque pedes atque unguibus haesit, saucius at serpens sinuosa volumina versat arrectisque horret squamis et sibilat ore, arduus insurgens; ilia haud minus urget obunco 755 luctantem rostro, simul aethera verberat alis: haud aliter praedam Tiburtum ex agmine Tarchon portat ovans.
Pagina 375 - Tigris ; in the middle of the winter it increases a little, but falls again soon after ; in March it again rises ; and in the latter end of April is at its full, continuing so till the latter end of June.

Ira deinde vertit in rabiem iam tum peregrinos ritus nova subeunte fortuna. Per talos enim spirantis lora traiecta sunt religatumque ad currum traxere circa urbem equi gloriante rege, Achulen, a quo genus ipse deduceret, imitatum se esse poena in hostem capienda.
Pagina lxxxiv - ... neque enim de his me interrogatis, quos ipsi audistis, sed de his, qui ad vos usque non pervenerunt.
Pagina 14 - Pessinunte occurrere cum insignibus suis, vatici'""' nantes fanatico carmine deam Romanis viam belli et 10 victoriam dare imperiumque eius regionis. Accipere se omen cum dixisset consul, castra eo ipso loco 11 posuit. Postero die ad Gordium pervenit. Id baud magnum quidem oppidum est, sed plus quam mediterraneum celebre et frequens emporium.
Pagina 375 - The whole country between Bagdad and Hillah is perfectly flat, and (with the exception of a few spots as you approach the latter place) an uncultivated waste. That it was at some former period in a far different state is evident from the number of canals by which it is traversed, now dry and neglected, and the quantity of heaps of earth, covered with fragments of brick and broken tiles, which are seen in every direction, the...
