Evander, who recollects having met Priam and Anchises when he was a young man, promises his  full support against Turnus. He invites Aeneas and his company to be guests at the worship  ceremony for Hercules, which is performed yearly as an offering of thanks to Hercules for killing  Cacus, the fire-breathing giant who dwelt in a nearby cave and victimized Evander's people. Aeneas accompanies Evander to his home, and on the way Evander tells Aeneas that the region of  Latium was formerly the realm of the god Saturn, who, banished by Jupiter, came here as an exile  and taught the arts of civilization to the savage natives. In Pallanteum, Aeneas is shown sites that  will be famous in later times when Rome is in its full glory, including the Capitol, the future city's  central hill.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
