The Sibylline oracles are messages, warnings, and prophetic verses of the polytheistic religion of the Etruscans and Romans; in addition, it was used by Greeks and others under the rule of the Roman Republic and Roman Empire. The Sibylline oracles in their complete and un-tampered form remain lost since, at least, 400s CE.
- O MEN, why do ye vainly think on things
Too lofty, as if ye immortal were?
