287.20+approximate Latin translation: 'Come without delay, ye men of old, while a small piece of second-grade imperial papyrus, concerning those to be born later, is exhibited with more propriety in the Roman tongue of the dead. Let us, seated joyfully on jars of meats (fleshpots) and beholding in fact the site of Paris whence such great human progeny is to arise, turn over in our minds the most ancient wisdom of both the priests Giordano and Giambattista: the fact that the whole of the river flows safely, with a clear stream, and that those things which were to have been on the bank would later be in the bed; finally, that everything recognises itself through something opposite and that the stream is embraced by rival banks'
287.20+alternative Latin translation: 'Men from past generations, come, without delay and while the tiny scrap of second-best "Liffey" papyrus is on display. It is inscribed, quite fittingly, in the Latin language of those who have passed away, concerning happenings which are yet to take place. While we are happily sitting over the flesh-pots and observing (yes indeed) the site of Paris from which, under favorable omens, so many branches of the human race will emerge, let us turn over in our minds the most ancient and wise theory of the pair of priests Giordano Bruno and Giambattista Vico. They saw that the entire world flows smoothly, like a river; and that the same things which have been screwed away from the bank will once again be within the bed of the river; and that each thing recognizes itself through its opposite; and that every river has two banks which embrace the same stream'
