No, Lattimore didn't do the Aeneid, unfortunately. Like you, Lattimore is by far my favourite version of the Iliad and Odyssey.

For those who prefer a prose translation of the Aeneid, the Penguin Classics version by David West is perhaps the best, although personally I prefer the Fagles poetry version.
