An ancient Prophecy of Regiomonetanus.

FROM Chriſt's birth count thouſand years complete,
And add five hundred more with eighty-eight;
That year approaching, all men will affright
With woful terrors which on them will light,
If the whole world do not to ruin run,
Or into nothing land and ſeas be done,
At leaſt some Realms ſhall topſie turvy turn,
And men on all hands lamentably mourn.
