Rome

This, yes, this is the city which still sustains all things; but we must pray and adore the God of heaven, that his decrees and judgments may if possible be delayed, lest that dreadful tyrant come sooner than we think.

{Illa, illa est civitas, quae adhuc sustentat omnia; precandusque nobis et adorandus est Deus coeli; si tamen statuta eius et placita differi possunt, ne citius quam putemus tyrannus ille abominabilis veniat.}

– Lactantius, Institutes
