Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria di Cesare

Presti ormai l'egizia terra
le sue palme al vincitor!
Curio, Cesare venne, e vide e vinse; già sconfitto Pompeo invan ricorre
per rinforzar de' suoi guerrier lo stuolo d'Egitto al re.

English Libretto or Translation:

Caesars air

Soon now the Egyptian land
his palms to the vincitor!
Curio, Caesar came, and saw and won; already defeated Pompey invan recurs
to strengthen his host of Egypt to the king for his warriors.
