Note 061
From Chapter 41 of the Decline & Fall

A Sibylline oracle was ready to pronounce - Africâ captâ mundus cum nato peribit; a sentence of portentous ambiguity, (Gothic. l. i. c. 7,) which has been published in unknown characters by Opsopaeus, an editor of the oracles. The Pere Maltret has promised a commentary; but all his promises have been vain and fruitless.
