From LLPSI Cap XLI

Postby pmda » Thu Sep 26, 2013 6:25 pm

This is from LLPSI Cap XLI:

Ibi egressi Troiani, quibus ab immenso prope errore nihil praeter arma et naves supererat, cum praedam ex agris agerent, Latinus rex Aboriginesque, qui tum ea tenebant loca, ad arcendam vim [= ut vim arcerent] advenarum armati ex urbe atque agris concurrunt.

Here (in Laurens) the Trojians disembarked, to whom, from the almost endless journey, nothing besides arms and ships was left, whilst they were hunting prey in the fields, Latinus, king of the natives, who then ruled this area, for purpose of opposing the power of the arms of the invaders rode from the city and arrived in the fields.

'armati' is genitive adjective with no obect noun present, right?

Latinus rex Aboriginesque, qui tum ea tenebant loca -- should be "Latinus the king and the natives, who then held these places . . . "

Armati is nominative plural, agreeing wtih Latinus rex Aboriginesque -- "they came armed"

ex urbe atque agris concurrunt -- "they all came running together from the city and the fields"

ad arcendum vim advenarum -- "to ward off the force of the new arrivals"
