From that mountain zone They came, where rising from a common fount Euphrates flows and Tigris, and did earth Permit, were joined with either name; but now While like th' Egyptian flood Euphrates spreads His fertilising water, Tigris first Drawn down by earth in covered depths is plunged And holds a secret course; then born again Flows on Tigris first Drawn down by earth in covered depths is plunged And holds a secret course; then born again Flows on unhindered to the Persian sea. But warlike Parthia wavered 'twixt the chiefs, Content to have made them two See Book I., 120.; while Scythia's hordes Dipped fresh their darts in poison, whom the stream Of Bactros bounds and vast Hyrcanian woods. Hence springs that rugged nation swift and fierce, Descended from the Twins' great charioteer.A race called Heniochi, said to be descended from the charioteer of Castor and Pollux.

nds, and beasts of prey, As in a line of toils. Pompeius lacked Nor field nor forage in th' encircled span Nor room to move his camp; nay, rivers rose Within, and ran their course and reached the sea; And Caesar wearied ere he saw the whole, And daylight failed him. Let the ancient tale Attribute to the labours of the gods The walls of Ilium: let the fragile bricks Which compass in great Babylon, amaze The fleeting Parthian. Here a larger space Than those great cities which Orontes swift And Tigris' stream enclose, or that which boasts In Eastern climes, the lordly palaces Fit for Assyria's kings, is closed by walls Amid the haste and tumult of a war Forced to completion. Yet this labour huge Was spent in vain. So many hands had joined Or Sestos with Abydos, or had tamed With mighty mole the Hellespontine wave, Or Corinth from the realm of Pelops king Had rent asunder, or had spared each ship Her voyage round the long Malean cape, Or had done anything most hard, to mould The world's cr

And now the Indian fears the axe no more Once emblem of thy power, now no more The girded Consul curbs the Getan horde, Or in Sarmatian furrows guides the share:That is, marked out the new colony with a plough-share. This was regarded as a religious ceremony, and therefore performed by the Consul with his toga worn in ancient fashion. Still Parthia boasts her triumphs unavenged: Foul is the public life; and Freedom, fled To furthest Earth beyond the Tigris stream, And Rhine's broad river, wandering at her will 'Mid Teuton hordes and Scythian, though by sword Sought, yet returns not. Would that from the day When Romulus, aided by the vulture's flight, Ill-omened, raised within that hateful grove Rome's earliest walls, down to the crimsoned field In dire Thessalia fought, she ne'er had known Italia's peoples!

'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? Then fill your quivers full, ' "Draw to its fullest span th' Armenian bow; '" And, Getan archers, wing the fatal shaft. '" And you, ye Parthians, if when I sought '"The Caspian gates, and on th' Alaunian tribes " Fierce, ever-warring, pressed, I suffered you " In Persian tracts to wander, nor compelled " To seek for shelter Babylonian walls; " If beyond Cyrus' kingdom Pompeius seems to have induced the Roman public to believe that he had led his armies to such extreme distances, but he never in fact d

'Go thou and pass Araxes' chilly stream 'On this thine errand; and the mournful ghost 'Pierced by the Scythian shaft shall greet thee thus: ' "Dost thou, to whom our wandering shades have looked '" For vengeance and for war, seek from the foe '"A treaty and a peace? " And there profuse Shall meet thee sad memorials of the rout: 'Red is yon wall where passed their headless trunks; 'Euphrates here engulfed them, Tigris there ' Cast up to perish. Gaze on such array, 'And thou canst supplicate at Caesar's feet ' In mid Thessalia seated. Nay, thy glance ' Turn on the Roman world, and if thou fear'st King Juba faithless and the southern realms, Then seek we Pharos. Egypt on the west Girt by the trackless Syrtes forces back By sevenfold stream the ocean; rich in glebe And gold and merchandise; and proud of Nile Asks for no rain from heaven.
