Lucan, Pharsalia, 5.57-5.59


nanLet Fortune, smiling, give you courage now As, when ye fled, your cause. The Consuls' power Fails with the dying year: not so does yours; By your commandment for the common weal Decree Pompeius leader." With applause They heard his words, and placed their country's fates, Nor less their own, within the chieftain's hands. Then did they shower on people and on kings Honours well earned — Rhodes, Mistress of the Seas, Was decked with gifts; Athena, old in fame
