The man of Troy recounted his flight to the queen of Carthage.


Explanation:
It looks like it's from the Aeneid. Aeneas fled from Troy and met Queen Dido in Carthage. Carthage is poetically called Poena, whence the "Punic" wars bet. Rome and Carthage.
It's related to Phoenician, since the Carthaginians were originally Phoenicians colonists.
