    Done with a knowledge of basic Latin, not Google Translate. There were one or two misspellings in the original Latin which I've corrected.

    They had besieged the city for ten hours and had conquered the Greeks, who were hindered by heavy weapons.

    The commander/general had remained for eight hours in the harbour because of turbulence in the sea.

    4. Brevi tempore multi Romanorum in urbem nostram convenerint.
