Pompeius, ignorant that his captain thus Was taken, armed his levies newly raised To give his legions strength; and as he thought To sound his trumpets with the coming dawn, To test his soldiers ere he moved his camp Thus in majestic tones their ranks addressed: True host of Rome! avengers of her laws Ranked 'neath the standards of the better right, To whom the Senate gives no private arms, Ask by your voices for the battle sign.
