"Si vis pacem, para bellum." --Epitoma rei militaris, Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus; c. 390 A.D.A reasonable translation into English - as we know it today (Latin meanings do not change, hence their use in medicine and law), would be:
"If you seek peace, prepare for war."I've decided that this will be one of three inscriptions associated with the sword Fenny carried, Salvadore. It makes perfect sense, since while no one (in their right mind, at least) likes fighting or war, sometimes violence is necessary, to protect others.
