Dexter ames; feu te roseum Titana vocari Gentis Achaemeniae ritu, seu praestat Ofirin Frugiferum, feu Persei sub rupibus antri Indignata fequi torquentem cornua Mitram.

Whether the stile of Titan please thee more,
Whose purple rays th’ Achæmenes adore ;
Or great Ofiris, who first taught the swain
In Pharian fields to sow the golden grain ; 860
Or Mitra, to whose beams the Persian bows,
And
pays,

in hollow rocks, his awful vows; Mitra, whose head the blaze of light adorns, Who grasps the struggling heifer's lunar horns.
