For this purpose the Pope commissioned two bishops, Vitalis and Misenus, to go as his legates to the emperor.
I longed to ascend the promontory of Misenus, and follow the same dusky route down which the Sibyl conducted neas.
This urn was afterwards deposited in a lofty tomb which Æneas erected on a promontory that henceforth bore the name of Misenus.
Therefore, the Harpies coming yet again, Misenus with his trumpet gave the sound for battle.
Misenus lay there, than whom no man was more skilful to call men to battle with the voice of the trumpet.
Virgil tells us, that Misenus was buried, in the clothes he commonly wore.
Misenus was the most skilled among all the Trojans in the art of blowing the trumpet.
After the death and burial of Misenus, Æneas finds and gathers the golden bough (199-261).
