An ode in Latin


Enjoy this beautiful ode, written by one of our fresh citizen, C.Petronius Dexter, living in Gaul (Gallia, reg. Celtica).

Petronius has composed his ode in elegiac distichs (one dactyl hexameter followed by one dactyl pentameter. This combination has been used by Ovid).


Iam Romani sunt Ludi, sunt munera danda,
Venit tempus nunc facere sacra lovi.
Alme Pater divum ! nos te colimus per arenam
Pulveream Circi, Maximeque alme Pater !

Iam sol declinans excelsa cacumina Romae
Illustrat, Iam adsunt munera vota Iovi !
Romana Albucius pleno et spectacula Circo
Quadrijugos aequo carcere misit equos.

Iam cursus spectant, dant clamoresque Quirites
Laetitiae plenos, pignore nec vacuos.
Aurorae ora favent vana, est quoque victus Vlixes
Delecti, Pili acta haud melioraque sunt.

Iam sunt caela serena Iovis, iam pulveris orbes
Cessant in Circo nunc madido et tacito.
Cursus expectant iam venturosque Quirites
Aediles dabunt quos in honore Iovis.


This ode has been published first, by Petronius, in Nova Roma Forum a.d. XVIII Kal. Oct. 2761 auc (Sept. 14, 2008).
