Ferus omnia Iuppiter Argos transtulit

Does omnia refer to Argos? I would have expected it to be omnes. I also find it odd that Jupiter is referred to as 'wild'.

Fuimus Troes, fuit Illium et ingens gloria Teucrorum!
Ferus omnia Iuppiter Argos transtulit...
Incensa Danai dominantur in urbe

Civis Illustris
These are lines from the second book of the Aeneid.

Argos is neuter and an accusative of direction.
omnia (= omnes res = everything) is the accusative object of transtulit. Zeus transferred everything (all the power) to Argos (Greece --> from Troy to Greece).
I wouldn't take ferus in the sense of 'wild', but in the sense of 'cruel' (cruel towards the Trojans)
