Lux Nova provides separate themed books of Nostradamus Prophecies, each of which can be accessed in the Secret Vault. This Quote or 'Extract' if you prefer, draws reference from the following books by Lux Nova:
Terroir Romain qu interpretoit augure,
Par gent Gauloise par trop sera vexee:
Mais nation celtique craindra l'heure,
Boreas, classe trop loing l'avoir poussee.
Authors works consulted for variations in French: (a) John Hogue. (b) Henry C. Roberts. (c) Mario Reading. (page, 229.) (d) Edgar Leoni. (e) Jean-Charles de Fontbrune (page, 106.) French rendered the same except. (b) has, 'gens,' and 'interpretatoit.' (d)(e) both have, 'interpretait,' and 'loin.'
Terroir= Soil, ground, land; also as territory. Interpretoit= Interprets, predicts, presages, warns. Augure= Divination, soothsaying, or conjecture of things to come; also, a foretoken, presage, prophecy, forewarning of. Craindra= Will dread, will fear; doubt. Boreas= The North-east wind. Loing= Far, much, a great way off. Poussee= A push or thrust forward. Pushed, thrusted.
This verse has a twin, in which Nostradamus warns the French against sending a fleet to attack the Romans; for the winds will turn against them and shatter a scatter the entire fleet, a great disaster. Other forces on the sea will keep any remnants of the fleet from escaping. The Augur maybe Nostradamus himself, maybe not? Either way those who should have listened will not, and the disaster will not be avoided.
Roman territories as predicted by the augure,
By the French (Gauloise) will be greatly troubled;
But the celtic nation will fear the hour,
The north wind pushing the fleet too far.
