From Chapter 20 of the Decline & Fall

See Constantin. Orat ad Sanctos, c. 19, 20. He chiefly depends on a mysterious acrostic, composed in the sixth age after the Deluge by the Erythraean Sibyl, and translated by Cicero into Latin. The initial letters of the thirty-four Greek verses form this prophetic sentence:- JESUS CHRIST, SON OF GOD, SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD.
