January 6: Warned by Hector's Ghost (Vol. 13, pp. 109-127)
In the dead of night, the ghost of Hector warns Aeneas that Troy is about to be attacked. Our hero gathers up his family and flees. That's the condensed version of this selection from Virgil's "Aeneid," and you would probably wouldn't have figured this out without the synopsis from the guide. This is some of the most impenetrable, unreadable stuff in the series.
