The scroll reads: "Italo had given the rulership of the peoples in Rome to his daughter, and from her ensued the realm of Latio that passed on to Enea, whose descendants founded Rome, that after some centuries dominated almost the entire world. But being human things unstable, this, too, came to an end…But today it is peacefully ruled by its princes, who will with their knowledge and wisdom free it from great danger and ruin."
