#LatinForTheDay - 22 June

"Non ego te, quamvis properabis vincere, Caesar,
si vetet auspicium, signa movere velim.
sint tibi Flaminius Trasimenaque litora testes
per volucres aequos multa monere deos."

Ovid, Fasti 6.763-6

'Although you are hasty to conquer, Caesar, I would not wish
You to march forth your standards were the omens unfavourable.
Let Flaminius and the shores of Trasimene be your witnesses
That the fair gods give many warnings through birds.'
Ovid here refers to the Battle of Lake Trasimene, in 217 BC, where Hannibal's troops overwhelmed the Roman forces under the command of the consul Gaius Flaminius.
