Seite 251 - Hue prius angustis eiecta cadavera cellis conservus vili portanda locabat in area; hoc miserae plebi stabat commune sepulcrum, Pantolabo scurrae Nomentanoque nepoti: mille pedes in fronte, trecentos cippus in agrum hie dabat, heredes monumentum ne sequeretur. Nunc licet Esquiliis habitare salubribus atque aggere in aprico spatiari, quo modo tristes albis informem spectabant ossibus agrum...

Seite 255 - Fate's severe decree, A new Marcellus shall arise in thee ! Full canisters of fragrant lilies bring, Mixed with the purple roses of the spring : Let me with funeral flowers his body strow ; This gift which parents to their children owe, This unavailing gift, at least, I may bestow...
Seite 45 - Ctere ; a date which, whether true or false, will at all events hardly command belief in the absence of all proof except the historian's assertion.

On one side is an altar with wood and fire upon it ; on the other a Bacchus, naked, with his thick hair plaited and bound with ivy. He rides a tiger, and has his left hand in the attitude of holding reins, which time probably has destroyed ; with the right he raises a drinking-horn.
Seite 42 - The picture represents a scene containing four masked figures, playing upon various instruments ; a tambourine, cymbals, the double pipe, and the Pandean pipe ; a selection not unlike the equipment of a Pandean band in modern times. The drapery is elegant and well folded, and the whole composition is excellently grouped and drawn with precision. It is formed of very small pieces of glass, of the most beautiful colours, and of various shades. The hair, the small leaves which ornament the masks, and...
Seite 241 - ... on a sudden, in the midst of this elegant regularity, you are surprised with an imitation of the negligent beauties of rural nature, in the centre of which lies a spot surrounded with a knot of dwarf Plane trees.
