Hi everybody,

As a matter of fact, I am translating a text (social sciences) the author of which cites a line from "Aeneid" - MISQUOTING it!
It goes as following: "The goddess can be recognized by her step" (Aeneid, I, 405)"

Have you got any idea where exactly this line is from?

Thank you very much for your attention!

I'm not sure at all, but was it in Book II when Aeneas and Achates meet Venus?

It is the correct line, just not a literal translation. "vera incessu patuit dea" - the true goddess lies open (ie, is revealed) by her stride.

I don't know where else to post this (I havent really figured out livejournal yet). I'm looking for some help translating this line from Solinus:

"Silet per diem universus, nec sine horrore secretus est; lucet nocturnis ignibus, chorus Aegipanum undique personatur: audiuntur et cantus tibiarum, et tinnitus cymbalorum per oram maritimam."

I don't know any Latin but using online resources combined with my limited understanding of French I have managed to come up with.... next to nothing. If anyone could help out or pass this along to someone else, it'd be so so great. Thanks.

Re: more latin translations

I have been looking for a translation of this as well, I am not sure of it's original source, but the one posted here is also a direct quote from The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen. Even the punctuation is the same.
