1.'hic Danaos ad tecta ruentes 2.cernimus,obsessumque acta testudine limen.

3.haerent parietibus scalae;postesque sub ipsos

4.nituntur gradibus,clipeosque ad tela sinistris

5.protecti obiciunt,prensant fastigia dextris.

6.Dardanidae contra turres ac tecta domorum

7.culmina convellunt.his se,quando ultima cernunt,

8.extrema iam in morte parant defendere telis.

9.auratasque trabes,veterum decora alta parentum,

10.devolvunt.alii strictis mucronibus imas

11.obsedere fores.has servant agmine denso.'

**6.Dardanidae contra turres ac tecta domorum **__if you mean "turres" and "tecta," yes__

7.culmina convellunt.his se,quando ultima cernunt, __if you mean "culmina" and "convellunt," yes ("cernunt" is too far away from the other two to count!__

assonance in l.7 and l.9

**Which words do you consider as contributing to assonance?

and chiasmus in l.1 and l.9
