    Behold a worthy sight, to which the God, turning his attention to
    his own work, may direct his gaze. Behold an equal thing, worthy
    of a God, a brave man matched in conflict with evil fortune.
    [Lat., Ecce spectaculum dignum, ad quod respiciat intentus operi
    suo Deus. Ecce par Deo dignum, vir fortis cum mala fortuna
    compositus.]
