Latin term or phrase: Et Vivum Detulim Aprum Terribilem
This phrase is on top of a tapestry. The scene is that of a lion attacking a boar in the woods. Pan is standing off to the side of them. Several searches for this phrase came up with reference to Vergil's Aeneid. So if anyone can help I would appreciate it.

sorry but don't have time to explain word by word, esp. the tricky one like "tetulit" (te-fero, te-tuli...etc)

hope it helps :)
