Verse 7.209.11

बन्धूनामपि तत्रैव तदैवास्य तथैव च ।
प्रतिभा तादृशैवेति धातुक्षोभवतामिव ॥ ११ ॥

bandhūnāmapi tatraiva tadaivāsya tathaiva ca |
pratibhā tādṛśaiveti dhātukṣobhavatāmiva || 11 ||

He sees also the deaths of his friends there, and thinks also that he hears the wailings of their relations at that place; he sees the chimeras of all these in his phrensy, as a man of deranged humours sees the spectres of bugbears in his delirium.
