I realise the Latin is probably completely wrong. But it's more important that people have a reasonable chance of figuring it out.

The background, by the way, is the Roman Pantheon, an absolutely amazing building to see. Moreso because it's been there for nearly 2000 years.

2021-03-06 Rerun commentary: This means that the Pantheon was actually there in the time period when this theme is set[1], and it's still there today. That's pretty amazing.

[1] More or less. The Pantheon was built in 113-125 A.D. The time period of the Romans theme is kind of vague and not tied down to any particular period in Roman history. So some bits might be said to take place earlier than the Pantheon. While comics such as this one obviously take place after it was built. Such is the timey-wimey nature of things.
