Know the good citizens of our Republic, I, Titus Flavius Severus, today at dawn, as it falls to a true Roman, by tradition, made auspices, and they were favorable. The will of Jupiter is unambiguous and I am grateful to the divine will that granted me this office and agreed with what I proposed to the citizens of the Republic as my course of action.
For the first time, we revive this tradition after millennia, and this is happening in our Republic. Glory to the Roman Republic, glory to our fellow citizens for this is the new dawn of our Republic, of the Res Publica – our common cause.
Tradition is not just a matter of the past, it is our present, something that is reflected in our pious deeds.
Rejoice in the Quirites, for history is being revived before you, and you are witnessing a great undertaking.
