Battle Cry

Tacitus, Annals 1.59.6 (reporting a speech by Arminius; tr. Cynthia Damon):
If you prefer country, parents and ancient ways to masters and new settlements, follow Arminius to glory and freedom, not Segestes to shameful enslavement.

si patriam parentes antiqua mallent quam dominos et colonias novas, Arminium potius gloriae ac libertatis quam Segestem flagitiosae servitutis ducem sequerentur.
Patria, parentes, antiqua — that would make a good battle cry.
