'Of Caesar's senate! Lift your standards, then, 'Spur on your fates and prove your hopes to heaven. 'Let Fortune, smiling, give you courage now 'As, when ye fled, your cause. The Consuls' power ' Fails with the dying year: not so does yours; ' By your commandment for the common weal ' Decree Pompeius leader.' With applause They heard his words, and placed their country's fates, Nor less their own, within the chieftain's hands. Then did they shower on people and on kings Honours well earned-Rhodes, Mistress of the Seas, Was decked with gifts; Athena, old in fame, Received her praise, and the rude tribes who dwell On cold Taygetus; Massilia's sons Their own Phocaea's freedom; on the chiefs Of Thracian tribes, fit honours were bestowed. They order Libya by their high decree To serve King Juba's sceptre; and, alas! On Ptolemaeus, of a faithless race The faithless sovereign, scandal to the gods, And shame to Fortune, placed the diadem Of Pella. Boy! against the common herd Fierce is thy

Next Taurus' heights he saw And Dipsus falling from his lofty sides: So sailed he onward. Did Pompeius dream, When giving safety to the seas, he made Flight for himself secure? His little boat Flies unmolested past Cilician shores; B

k I., 662.) of the inmost shrine, Unseen of men! here in your ancient seat, 'Most famous offspring of Iulus' race, 'I call upon you and with pious hand Burn frequent offerings. To my emprise Give prosperous ending! Here shall I replace 'The Phrygian peoples, here in glad return 'Italia's sons shall build a Pergamus And from these stones shall rise a Roman Troy.' He seeks his fleet, and eager to regain Time spent at Ilium, to the favouring breeze Spreads all his canvas. Past rich Asia borne, Rhodes soon he left while foamed the sparkling main Beneath his keels; nor ceased the wind to stretch His bending sails, till on the seventh night The Pharian beam proclaimed Egyptian shores. But day arose, and veiled the nightly lamp Ere rode his barks on waters safe from storm. Then Caesar saw that tumult held the shore, And mingled voices of uncertain sound Struck on his ear: and trusting not himself To doubtful kingdoms, of uncertain troth, He kept his ships from land. But from the king Came hi
