טקסט

Latin

Biduum irae datum est; tertio die processit erigique duodecim aras ex quadrato saxo, monumentum expeditionis suae, munimenta quoque castrorum iussit extendi cubiliaque amplioris formae quam pro corporum habitu relinqui, ut speciem omnium augeret, posteritati fallax miraculum praeparans.

English

Two days were spent in anger; on the third day he came out and ordered twelve altars of squared stone to be erected as a memorial of his expedition. He also gave directions that the fortifications of the came be extended, and couches of a larger size than were used by man if ordinary stature be left there, in order that by exaggerating the proportion of everything he might prepare a deceptive wonder for posterity
