Nostradamus C8 Q29: Caesar and Caepio as reference guides to modern gold crisis.
Copyright: Allan Webber, December 2015
The intent of this verse is to provide a suitable metaphor for the gold
based financial crisis of the 21st century.
By comparison to events
surrounding two ancient figures Nostradamus delivers a picture of the
events that will identify the coming crisis.
Both these ancients had
adventures in the parts of Southern Europe with which Nostradamus was well
acquainted so their referencing is quite apt.
The following extract in Wikipedia provides detail of the gold carried off
Quintus Servilius Caepio in 105 BCE an event which is directly
referred to in the last line of this verse.
While marching to Arausio (modern-day
Orange) Caepio plundered the temples of the town of Tolosa, ancient
Tolouse, finding over 50,000 fifteen-pound bars of gold and 10,000
fifteen-pound bars of silver.
reports a story told in his time of this semi-legendary treasure, the
aurum Tolosanum, supposed to have been the "cursed gold" looted during
the sack of
Delphi during the
Gallic invasion of the Balkans in 279 BC. The riches of Tolosa were
shipped back to Rome, but only the silver made it; the gold was stolen by
a band of marauders, who were believed to have been hired by Caepio
The Gold of Tolosa was never found, and was said to have been passed
all the way down to the last heir of the Servilii Caepiones,
Marcus Junius Brutus.
The text holds the name Caepio while the anagrams contain '
talent'. Caesar followed Caepio by about two generations and one of
the common recognitions
by later generations was that he was a man
of many talents. The following is a concluding statement in a brief online
As a general and a statesman, Caesar has clearly earned his place in world
history. With the exception of Cicero, he was the greatest orator of his
time. As a historian, he has rarely been surpassed in simplicity,
directness and dignity. A man of many talents, Caesar was a mathematician,
philologist, jurist and architect. The main outcome of his illustrious
career was the transformation of Rome from a Republic to an Empire.
At the fourth pillar dedicated to Saturn
earthquake and by flood;
under Saturn's building an urn is found
gold carried off by Caepio and then restored.
Au quart pillier l'on ſacre a ſaturne
Par tremblant terre et
Soubz l'edifice Saturnin trouuee vrne
rauy et puis rendu.
