Texts

Νεῖλος ἑορτάζει παρὰ Θύμβριδος ἱερὸν ὕδωρ,
εὐξάμενος θύσειν Καίσαρι σῳζομένῳ:
οἱ δ᾽ ἑκατὸν βουπλῆγες ἑκούσιον αὐχένα ταύρων
ᾕμαξαν βωμοῖς Οὐρανίοιο Διός.

— Paton edition

The Nile¹ keeps festival by the holy wave of Tiber,
having vowed a sacrifice for Caesar's deliverance.
A hundred axes made the willing necks of as many
bulls bleed at the altars of Heavenly Zeus.
