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.'
