Seite 300 - Sibila lambebant linguis vibrantibus ora. DIFFUGIMUS visu exsangues : illi agmine certo Laocoonta petunt; et primum parva duorum Corpora natorum serpens amplexus uterque Implicat , et miseros morsu depascitur artus. Post ipsum , auxilio subeuntem ac tela ferentem Corripiunt , spirisque ligant ingentibus : et jam Bis medium amplexi , bis collo squamea circum Terga dati , superant capite et cervicibus altis.
Seite 66 - Gloria curru, exanimat lentus spectator, sedulus inflat: sic leve, sic parvum est, animum quod laudis avarum subruit aut reficit. valeat res ludicra, si me 180 palma negata macrum, donata reducit opimum. saepe etiam audacem fugat hoc terretque poetam, quod numero plures, virtute et honore minores, indocti stolidique et depugnare parati, si discordet eques, media inter carmina poscunt 185 aut ursum aut pugiles; his nam plebecula gaudet.
Seite 224 - Onor del mento, e' 1 doppio raggio in fronte, Quest' e Mose, quando scendea del monte, E gran parte del Nume avea nel volto. Tal era allor, che le sonanti, e vaste Acque ei sospese a se d' intorno, e tale Quando il mar chiuse, e ne fe tomba altrui.

This fact has been so fully proved, that the few sectaries who deny it must be most barefaced, or a set of children, and silly children...
Seite 39 - ... ligno, cardinum singulorum versatili suspensa libramento, in quibus utrisque antemeridiano ludorum spectaculo edito inter sese aversis, ne invicem obstreperent scaenae, repente circumactis — ut constat, post primos dies etiam sedentibus aliquis — , cornibus in se coeuntibus faciebat amphitheatrum gladiatorumque proelia edebat, ipsum magis auctoratum populum Romanum circumferens.
Seite 22 - Besides the battles in which wild beasts were engaged, there were other sanguinary spectacles, in which gladiators either contended in single combat, or large bodies of horse and foot fought with each other. The usual division of the daily amusements was that in the morning men fought with beasts, in the middle of the day with each other. The latter was rather a, kind of interlude to the former.
Seite 45 - As long as the Coliseum stands, Rome shall stand ; when the Coliseum falls, Rome will fall; when Rome falls, the world will fall.
Seite 295 - ... The fame of many sculptors is less diffused, because the number employed upon great works prevented their celebrity ; for there is no one artist to receive the honour of the work, and where there are more than one they cannot all obtain an equal fame. Of this the Laocoon is an example, which stands in the palace of the Emperor Titus, a work which may be considered superior to all others both in painting and statuary.
