10.3.7. The accounts which are more remotely related, however, to the present subject, but are wrongly, on account of the identity of the names, brought into the same connection by the historians — I mean those accounts which, although they are called Curetan History and History of the Curetes, just as if they were the history of those Curetes who lived in Aitolia and Acaria, not only are different from that history, but are more like the accounts of the Satyri, Sileni, Bacchae, and Tityri; for the Curetes, like these, are called genii or ministers of gods by those who have handed down to us the Cretan and the Phrygian traditions, which are interwoven with certain sacred rites, some mystical, the others connected in part with the rearing of the child Zeus in Crete and in part with the orgies in honor of the Mother of the Gods which are celebrated in Phrygia and in the region of the Trojan Ida. But the variation in these accounts is so small that, whereas some represent the Corybantes, the Cabeiri, the Idaean Dactyli, and the Telchines as identical with the Curetes, others represent them as all kinsmen of one another and differentiate only certain small matters in which they differ in respect to one another; but, roughly speaking and in general, they represent them, one and all, as a kind of inspired people and as subject to Bacchic frenzy, and, in the guise of ministers, as inspiring terror at the celebration of the sacred rites by means of war-dances, accompanied by uproar and noise and cymbals and drums and arms, and also by flute and outcry; and consequently these rites are in a way regarded as having a common relationship, I mean these and those of the Samothracians and those in Lemnos and in several other places, because the divine ministers are called the same. However, every investigation of this kind pertains to theology, and is not foreign to the speculation of the philosopher.

Mamurius (morum fabraene exactior artis, 3.384. difficile est ulli dicere) clausit opus. 3.385. cui Numa munificus facti pete praemia, dixit; 3.386. si mea nota fides, inrita nulla petes. 3.387. iam dederat Saliis a saltu nomina dicta 3.388. armaque et ad certos verba canenda modos. 3.389. tum sic Mamurius: ‘merces mihi gloria detur, 3.390. nominaque extremo carmine nostra sonent.’ 3.391. inde sacerdotes operi promissa vetusto 3.392. praemia persolvunt Mamuriumque vocant, 3.260. Teach me, nymph, who serves Diana’s lake and grove: 3.261. Nymph, Egeria, wife to Numa, speak of your actions. 3.262. There is a lake in the vale of Aricia, ringed by dense woods, 3.263. And sacred to religion from ancient times. 3.264. Here Hippolytus hides, who was torn to piece 3.265. By his horses, and so no horse may enter the grove. 3.266. The long hedge is covered with hanging threads, 3.267. And many tablets witness the goddess’s merit. 3.268. often a woman whose prayer is answered, brow wreathed 3.269. With garlands, carries lighted torches from the City. 3.270. One with strong hands and swift feet rules there, 3.271. And each is later killed, as he himself killed before. 3.272. A pebble-filled stream flows down with fitful murmurs: 3.273. often I’ve drunk there, but in little draughts. 3.274. Egeria, goddess dear to the Camenae, supplies the water: 3.275. She who was wife and counsellor to Numa. 3.276. The Quirites were too prompt to take up arms, 3.277. And Numa quietened them with justice, and fear of the gods. 3.278. So laws were made, that the stronger might not take all, 3.279. And traditional rights were properly observed. 3.280. They left off being savages, justice superseded arms, 3.281. And citizens were ashamed to fight each other: 3.282. Those who had once been violent were transformed, on seeing 3.283. An altar, offering wine and salted meal on the warm hearths. 3.284. See, the father of the gods scatters red lightning through 3.285. The clouds, and clears the sky with showers of rain: 3.286. The forked flames never fell thicker: 3.287. The king was fearful, the people filled with terror. 3.288. The goddess said: ‘Don’t be so afraid! Lightning 3.289. Can be placated, and fierce Jupiter’s anger averted. 3.290. Picus and Faunus, each a deity native to Roman soil, 3.291. Can teach you the rites of expiation. But they won’t 3.292. Teach them unless compelled: so catch and bind them.’ 3.293. And she revealed the arts by which they could be caught. 3.294. There was a grove, dark with holm-oaks, below the Aventine, 3.295. At sight of which you would say: ‘There’s a god within.’ 3.296. The centre was grassy, and covered with green moss, 3.297. And a perennial stream of water trickled from the rock. 3.298. Faunus and Picus used to drink there alone. 3.299. Numa approached and sacrificed a sheep to the spring, 3.300. And set out cups filled with fragrant wine. 3.301. Then he hid with his people inside the cave. 3.302. The woodland spirits came to their usual spring, 3.303. And quenched their dry throats with draughts of wine. 3.304. Sleep succeeded wine: Numa emerged from the icy cave 3.305. And clasped the sleepers’ hands in tight shackles. 3.306. When sleep vanished, they fought and tried to burst 3.307. Their bonds, which grew tighter the more they struggled. 3.308. Then Numa spoke: ‘Gods of the sacred groves, if you accept 3.309. My thoughts were free of wickedness, forgive my actions: 3.310. And show me how the lightning may be averted.’ 3.311. So Numa: and, shaking his horns, so Faunus replied: 3.312. ‘You seek great things, that it’s not right for you to know 3.313. Through our admission: our powers have their limits. 3.314. We are rural gods who rule in the high mountains: 3.315. Jupiter has control of his own weapons. 3.316. You could never draw him from heaven by yourself, 3.317. But you may be able, by making use of our aid.’ 3.318. Faunus spoke these words: Picus too agreed, 3.319. ‘But remove our shackles,’ Picus added: 3.320. ‘Jupiter will arrive here, drawn by powerful art. 3.321. Cloudy Styx will be witness to my promise.’ 3.322. It’s wrong for men to know what the gods enacted when loosed 3.323. From the snare, or what spells they spoke, or by what art 3.324. They drew Jupiter from his realm above. My song will sing 3.325. of lawful things, such as a poet may speak with pious lips. 3.326. The drew you (eliciunt) from the sky, Jupiter, and later 3.327. Generations now worship you, by the name of Elicius. 3.328. It’s true that the crowns of the Aventine woods trembled, 3.329. And the earth sank under the weight of Jove. 3.330. The king’s heart shook, the blood fled from his body, 3.331. And the bristling hair stood up stiffly on his head. 3.332. When he regained his senses, he said: ‘King and father 3.333. To the high gods, if I have touched your offering 3.334. With pure hands, and if a pious tongue, too, asks for 3.335. What I seek, grant expiation from your lightning,’ 3.336. The god accepted his prayer, but hid the truth with deep 3.337. Ambiguities, and terrified him with confusing words. 3.338. ‘Sever a head,’ said the god: the king replied; ‘I will, 3.339. We’ll sever an onion’s, dug from my garden.’ 3.340. The god added: ‘of a man’: ‘You’ll have the hair,’ 3.341. Said the king. He demanded a life, Numa replied: ‘A fish’s’. 3.342. The god laughed and said: ‘Expiate my lightning like this, 3.343. O man who cannot be stopped from speaking with gods. 3.344. And when Apollo’s disc is full tomorrow, 3.345. I’ll give you sure pledges of empire.’ 3.346. He spoke, and was carried above the quaking sky, 3.347. In loud thunder, leaving Numa worshipping him. 3.348. The king returned joyfully, and told the Quirite 3.349. What had happened: they were slow to believe his words. 3.350. ‘It will surely be believed,’ he said, ‘if the event follow 3.351. My speech: listen, all you here, to what tomorrow brings. 3.352. When Apollo’s disc has lifted fully above the earth, 3.353. Jupiter will grant me sure pledges of empire.’ 3.354. The left, doubtful, considering it long to wait, 3.355. But setting their hopes on the following day. 3.356. The ground was soft at dawn, with a frost of dew: 3.357. When the crowd gathered at the king’s threshold. 3.358. He emerged, and sat in the midst on a maple wood throne. 3.359. Countless warriors stood around him in silence. 3.360. Phoebus had scarcely risen above the horizon: 3.361. Their anxious minds trembled with hope and fear. 3.362. The king stood, his head covered with a white cloth 3.363. Raising his hands, that the god now knew so well. 3.364. He spoke as follows: ‘The time is here for the promised gift, 3.365. Jupiter, make true the words of your pledge.’ 3.366. As he spoke, the sun’s full disc appeared, 3.367. And a loud crash came from the depths of the sky. 3.368. Three times the god thundered, and hurled his lightning, 3.369. From cloudless air, believe what I say, wonderful but true. 3.370. The sky began to split open at the zenith: 3.371. The crowd and its leader lifted their eyes. 3.372. Behold, a shield fell, trembling in the light breeze. 3.373. The sound of the crowd’s shouting reached the stars. 3.374. The king first sacrificed a heifer that had never known 3.375. The yoke, then raised the gift from the ground, 3.376. And called it ancile, because it was cut away (recisum) 3.377. All round, and there wasn’t a single angle to note. 3.378. Then, remembering the empire’s fate was involved, 3.379. He thought of a very cunning idea. 3.380. He ordered many shields cut in the same shape, 3.381. In order to confuse the eyes of any traitor. 3.382. Mamurius carried out the task: whether he was superior 3.383. In his craft or his character it would be hard to say. 3.384. Gracious Numa said to him: ‘Ask a reward for your work, 3.385. You’ll not ask in vain of one known for honesty.’ 3.386. He’d already given the Salii, named from their leaping (saltus), 3.387. Weapons: and words to be sung to a certain tune. 3.388. Mamurius replied: ‘Give me glory as my prize, 3.389. And let my name be sounded at the song’s end.’ 3.390. So the priests grant the reward promised for hi 3.391. Ancient work, and now call out ‘Mamurius’. 3.392. Girl if you’d marry, delay, however eager both are:

When Numa showed the buckler to the artificers and bade them do their best to make others like it, they all declined, except Veturius Mamurius, a most excellent workman, who was so happy in his imitation of it, and made all the eleven so exactly like it, that not even Numa himself could distinguish them.
