Rest of the Trojan War story (this is the passage we studied in class):
Quem Paris eliget? Quo dono animus eius movebitur? Iuno eum regem, Minerva ducem facere potest. Venus autem ei Helenam, bellissimam omnium feminarum, dare potest.
Paris amore vincebatur et Veneri malum aureum dedit.
(si certa est fama horum factorum) Helena capiebatur et ad novam urbem, Troiam, ducebatur. Quod bellum gerebatur propter hanc feminam?
