Equo ne credite, Teucri. quidquid id est, timeo Danaos et dona ferentes.
Cf. Dryden's translation:
- Trust not their presents, nor admit the horse.
Cf. also Symmons' translation:
- O! trust not to the horse, my Trojan Friends!
Whate'er it means, it means but to deceive.
I dread the Grecians even when they give.
Cf. also Conington's translation:
- Mistrust, mistrust it, men of Troy!
Whate'er it be, a Greek I fear,
Though presents in his hand he bear.
