Aeneas

– People of Troy, we ‘ll let you live, you can have your freedom back.  You can go wherever you want.   But from your property you may take with you whatever your shoulders and hands are able to hold and carry.

Most of them were raising sacks full of gold and silver and jewels to take with them.  Aeneas raised his old man, his father.
