Lucan, Pharsalia, 8.584-8.586


nanWhose blood outpoured has gorged Thessalian fowl; Monarchs he fears whose all he hath destroyed, And nations piled in one ensanguined heap, By him deserted. Victim of the blow Thessalia dealt, refused in every land, He asks for help from ours not yet betrayed. But none than Egypt with this chief from RomeHas juster quarrel; who has sought with arms To stain our Pharos, distant from the strife And peaceful ever, and to make our realm
