Another translation summarises this book thus (this is being posted for reference purposes): OF King Numa and his learning — of Crotona and its divine origin — the teaching of Pythagoras, to wit: vegetarianism, metempsychosis, and the universal law of change — the story of Hippolytus — the transformation of Egeria — the tale of Cipus — the migration of Aesculapius to Rome — the achievements of Julius Caesar — of his assassination and apotheosis — the euology of Augustus — the invocation of the gods of Rome — the poet foresees his immortality in letters. -- Grammaticus 03:40, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
