I Gravis Metallicus, 25th legion, I entrust my memories, my faith in Giove and my hopes to the only man who could save us at this moment, the commander Julius Caesar.
Farnace II of Pontus, Pompey's ally as well as your enemy, attacked us at Nicopolis to undermine your dream. We resisted, we fought, we lost, and we retired.
I and the few survivors no longer feel like lions, but rabbits; let the enemy take possession of our virtues and mock your legionaries. I'm not sure this letter will reach its destination, but whatever happens in these weeks we will be ready to die for your dream and ours, tears and blood, swords and revenge for the enemy.
Honour and glory to the Roman Empire.
