A hundred brazen-knots

The gates of war, grim with iron and close-fitting bars, shall be closed; within, impious Rage, sitting on savage arms, his hands fast bound behind with a hundred brazen-knots, shall roar in the ghastliness of blood-stained lips.

Virgil, Aeneid, 291-296 (trans. H. Rushton Fairclough)
