En því vildu Rómverjar, at allar þjóðir næmi þeira tungu, at þá væri kunnari þeira tígn, ok þóat ríkin skiptiz, er stundir liði, mætti alt fólk vita, at þeira forellri hefði Rómverjum þjónat.
(But the Romans wished that all races might learn their tongue so that their glory might be better known, and so that, should the kingdoms divide in time, all people would know that their fore-fathers had served Romans.)
