Apres seiourné vogueront en Epire
Le grand secours viendra vers Antioche,
Le noir poil crespe tendra fort à l'Empire
Barbe d'airain le rostira en broche.
After having rested they will wander into Epirus,
The great relief effort will come towards Antioch:
The black frizzy haired one (noir poil crespe) will strive hard for the Empire,
The bronze-beard (barbe) will roast him on a spit.
