κἢν μυχὸν Ἑρκυναῖον, ἢ ἐς πύματον Σολόεντα
ἔλθῃ καὶ Λιβυκῶν κράσπεδον Ἑσπερίδων
Καῖσαρ ὁ πουλυσέβαστος, ἅμα κλέος εἶσιν ἐκείνῳ
πάντῃ. Πυρήνης ὕδατα μαρτύρια:

οἷσι γὰρ οὐδὲ πέριξ δρυτόμοι ἀπεφαιδρύναντο,
λουτρὰ καὶ ἠπείρων ἔσσεται ἀμφοτέρων.

— Paton edition

With most august Caesar, even if he go to the
depths of the Hercynian forest or to extreme Soloeis¹
and the western edge of Libya, goeth everywhere
glory. The waters of the Pyrenees² testify it. They
in which not even the neighbouring wood-cutters
washed, shall now be baths for two continents.
