Book VI Chapter 29: They proceed
Return to index
So spoke Anchises; then led forth his son [Note 1],
The Sibyl with him, to the assembled shades
(A voiceful throng), and on a lofty mound
His station took, whence plainly could be seen
The long procession, and each face descried.
Note 1: son = Aeneas
Event: Aeneas visits the Underworld
Dixerat Anchises natumque unaque Sibyllam
conuentus trahit in medios turbamque sonantem,
et tumulum capit unde omnis longo ordine posset
aduersos legere et uenientum discere uultus.
