Tullius Hostilius.

Tullius Hostilius was third Roman King,
Who Martial discipline in use did bring;
War with the antient Albans he did wage,
This strife to end six brothers did ingage.
Three call'd Horatii on the Romans side,
And Cutatii three Albans provide:
The Romans conquer, th' other yield the day,
Yet in their Compact, after false they play.
The Romans sore incens'd their General slay,
And from old Alb fetch the wealth away;
Of Latin Kings this was long since the Seat,
But now demolished, to make Rome great.
Page  189Thirty two years did Tullus reign, then dye.
Left Rome in wealth and power still growing high.
