When the chief Could find no hope in battle on the soil He now was quitting, and the lofty Alps Forbad Iberia, to his son he spake, The eldest scion of that noble stock: Search out the far recesses of the earth, 'Nile and Euphrates, wheresoe'er the fame Of Magnus lives, where, through thy father's deeds, The people tremble at the name of Rome. 'Lead to the sea again the pirate bands; 'Rouse Egypt's kings; Tigranes, wholly mine, 'And Pharnaces and all the vagrant tribes 'Of both Armenias; and the Pontic hordes, ' Warlike and fierce; the dwellers on the hills 'Rhipaean, and by that dead northern marsh 'Whose frozen surface bears the loaded wain. Why further stay thee? Let the eastern world Sound with the war, all cities of the earth 'Conquered by me, as vassals, to my camp 'Send all their levied hosts. And you whose names 'Within the Latian book recorded stand, 'Strike for Epirus with the northern wind; 'And thence in Greece and Macedonian tracts, (While winter gives us peace) new str

'Since in Emathia's battle-field was lost 'The world, so far as Roman, it remains ' To test the faith of peoples of the East ' Who drink of Tigris and Euphrates' stream, 'Secure as yet from Caesar. Be it thine 'Far as the rising of the sun to trace ' The fates that favour Magnus: to the courts ' Of Median palaces, to Scythian steppes; 'And to the son of haughty Arsaces, 'To bear my message, "Hold ye to the faith, '" Pledged by your priests and by the Thunderer's name ' "Of Latium sworn?

And art thou pleased ' From all the world to summon to her gates ' These savage peoples, while the standards lost ' By far Euphrates when the Crassi fell ' Shall lead thy columns?

Macedon he left His home obscure; Athena he despised, The conquest of his sire, and spurred by fate Through Asia rushed with havoc of mankind, Plunging his sword through peoples; red with blood UnknownReading 'ignoto' (Francken). to them Euphrates, Ganges ran.
