Juvencus: “Nothing is immortal – not golden Rome, not the sea”

In case we’ve forgotten : “Nothing contained in the structure of the world is immortal – not the globe, not human kingdoms, not golden Rome, not the sea, not the land, not the fire-stars of heaven.”

– Juvencus’ preface to his epic poem, Four Books of the Evangelists (ca 330 CE)
