Recitativo
Cleopatra

E pur così in un giorno
perdo fasti e grandezze? Ahi fato rio! Cesare, il mio bel nume, è forse estinto; Cornelia e Sesto inermi son, né sanno darmi soccorso. O dio!
Non resta alcuna speme al viver mio.

English Libretto or Translation:

Recitative
Cleopatra
And even so in a day
do I miss fates and sizes? Ahi fate! Caesar, my beautiful number, is perhaps extinct; Cornelia and Sesto are unarmed, nor can they give me help. Hate!
There remains no hope for my life.
