NASCITVR ROMVLVS in anno of his own making
creates his circumstance:
“I must be preceded so
lore of Aeneas and his line,
lust for what is set apart,
adumbrations of the divine.
Give me a virgin with suitable pudor.
Give me prophecy and a god in the corner.”
It is attested that from the hearth of the king issued an apparition of arms
and a virile form,
which remained some days in the household.
Honor to the king! He proposed coupling between his daughter
and the virile form,
be it accomplished
(unless the daughter refused and they had to bring in a maid)
“There shall be no waste of apparitions;
their lusts and ours must flow in one channel.
Something consummate the virile form”
