    Hello, my teacher wrote this: ..."nec matres bella ac glaudios cruentos horrebant". But I think he is referring to glaudos cruentos: bloodstained swords

    What do you think ???

    English but my first language was German
    I think he mispelled gladios----you did too.

    bella ac gladios is a hendiadys, where you ue two descriptive phrases to specify one concept ("war and its bloody swords").
