The Aeneid is a fictional poetic work by Virgil, about the founding of Rome. It is the counterpart of the Greek Iliad and Odyssey. It follows the survivors of the fall of Troy as they flee the city and seek to found a new land of their own.

It opens with the famous words Arma virumque cano ("Of arms and the man I sing,") which is often alluded to in literature. For example, the title of George Bernard Shaw's play is Arms and the Man.
