Book Two - "Cocceio's Cave"

Cocceio's Cave is east of Cumae. "Cocceio's Cave runs arrow-straight from the town of Cumae, to the west, to the shore of Lake Avernus, to the east. It is a kilometer long and wide enough for two wagons to pass one another. It has recently been excavated on Caesar's orders[30 as a footnote], but it also makes for a very convenient road for petitioners seeking the Sybil. Regularly spaced torches light your way."

The scenery_torches are scenery in Cocceio's Cave. The printed name is "torches". The description is "Sputtering torches in iron sconces light the passage." They are ambiguously plural. Understand "sputtering", "smoky", "smoke", "iron", "sconce", "sconces", "torch", "torches", "lit", "lighted", "burning", "regular", "regularly", "spaced", and "light" as the scenery_torches. Instead of taking the scenery_torches, say "That would be quite antisocial." Instead of burning the scenery_torches, say "It's a little late for that." Instead of touching, rubbing, squeezing, pushing, or pulling the scenery_torches, say "The torch is sputtering and smoky, and you don't want to get that close to it."

The scenery_passage is scenery in Cocceio's Cave. The printed name is "Cocceio's Cave". The description is "The cave is really a very impressive feat of engineering, carved from the tufa that makes up this part of Campania." Understand "Cocceio's", "Cave", "Passage", "Cavern", "tufa", and "tunnel" as the scenery_passage.
