Et terrorem statira intulit Petilius Cerialis, Brigantum civitatem, quae numerosissima provinciae totius perhibetur, aggressus. Multa proelia, et aliquando non incruenta magnamque Brigantum partem aut victoria amplexus est aut bello.
But concerning this we need not dilate, as it has often been duly remarked upon, and notably by Carlyle, in his "Lectures on Hero-Worship." Who that has once heard the wail of unutterable despair sounding in the line "Ahi, dura terra, perche non t' apristi?" can rest satisfied with the interpretation "Ah, obdurate earth, wherefore didst thou not open?" yet this rendering is literally exact.
