Last but not least, we see the relationship between Aeneas and his own son. Aeneas, setting sail from Africa, is driven by a storm on the coasts of Sicily, where he is hopitably received by his friend Acestes, king of part of the island, and born of Trojan parentage.
He applies himself to celebrate the memory of his father with divine honors, and accordingly institutes funeral games, and appoints prizes for those who should conquer in them. While the cremonies were performing, Juno sends Iris to persuade the Trojan women to burn the ships, who, upon her instigation, set fie to them; which burnt four, and would have consumed the rest, had not Jupiter, by a miraculous shower, extinguished it.

Venus procures from Neptune a safe voyage for him and all his men, excepting only his pilot Palilnurus, who is unfortunately lost.
