Parati ad urbem Trojam navigare sunt. They were prepared to sail to the Trojan city. Parati looks like it should be with sunt( perfect passive) but the words are split. By appearing first in the sentence I would guess that parati carries a strong meaning but then why not begin the sentence with parati sunt?
