P Sufenas Virius Lupus
Put aside arms for the ploughshare,
O Red One, increaser of grain,
and quicken the wombs of cattle and sheep.
Who among goddesses is more valorous
than Ma-Bellona, whom Greeks style Enyo?
Therefore let her festivals be your feasts,
Marmor of far-reaching fame
with a hundred names in Gaul and Britain.
Put aside dalliances with Venus,
though Roma has been enriched from them,
and unite yourself to Nerio Victoria.
Such a pair so well-matched
never made as enviable a wall of refuge
as Duellona and Mavors Alator.
May the trumpets of war be silenced
for the flutes of the wedding feast!
Your virtues entwined, Bellona and Mamers
will be born as the excellence of legions,
the mother hailed as Mater Campestris;
your progeny on earth will enrich
the womb of Tellus with fertile soils
as nourishment for corn and crops.
I sing the couple beloved of men,
father Mars Ultor and Ma-Bellona,
and thank the gods for such a coupling!
