‘Is this the Man that made the Earth to tremble’
 
Vergil (70 B.C.–19 B.C.)
 
 
ASPICE quem ualido subnixum Gloria regno
altius et caeli sedibus extulerat.
terrarum hic bello magnum concusserat orbem,
  hic reges Asiae fregerat, hic populos,
hic graue seruitium tibi iam, tibi, Roma ferebat        5
  (cetera namque uiri cuspide conciderant),
cum subito in medio rerum certamine praeceps
  corruit, ex patria pulsus in exilium.
tale deae numen, tali mortalia nutu
  fallax momento temporis hora dedit.        10
