century or verse from Nostradamusindicates a link to a supporting book,
After great troubles for humanity, an even greater one is prepared,
The great mover renews the ages-cycle or centuries:
Rain, blood, milk, famine, steel and plague,
Fire seen in heaven, carrying a long spark (estincelle.)
A long- tailed comet, whose tail sparkles.
There will appear towards the north,
Not far from Cancer the bearded Star (estoile chevelue):
Susa, Siena, Boeotia, Eretria,
The great one of Rome will die, departing that night.
Mabus then soon dies, at the time will come
Of people and beasts, a horrible defeat,
Then all of a sudden one will see vengeance,
Hundred, hand, thirst, famine when the comet will run.
A burning torch will be seen in the night sky,
Close to the end and beginning of the Rhone:
Famine, blades: late will the help be seen,
As Persia turns to invade Macedonia (Greece.)
