This is the long journey of aeneas escaping from the burning city of Troy
We departed this home as well, and, leaving some people behind, set sail, and ran through the vast ocean in our hollow ships
(Aen. III 190-191)
I left my native shore with tears, the harbour and the fields where Troy once stood. I travelled the deep, an exile, with my friends and my son, and the great gods of our house
(Aen. III 10-12)
There’s no remedy in war, we all ask you for peace
(Aen. XI, 362)
