Meeting the real buddy Jesus at the Museum of Bad Art

“Nunc est bibendum, nunc pede libero
pulsanda tellus; nunc Saliaribus
ornare pulvinar deorum
tempus erat dapibus, sodales.”

Horace, Odes 1.37, celebrating the defeat of Cleopatra 

"Now it must be drunk, now with a free foot / the earth must be struck; / now for Saliarian feasts / to prepare the couch of the gods / it was the time, companions."
