P. Ovidius Naso

Furius antiquam populi superator Etrusci

voverat et voti solverat ille fidem.causa, quod a patribus sumptis secesserat armis

volgus, et ipsa suas Roma timebat opes.

Furius, the vanquisher of the Etruscan folk, had vowed the ancient temple, and he kept his vow. The cause was that the common folk had taken up arms and seceded from the nobles, and Rome dreaded her own puissance.
