Arrival of the Conqueror

Horace, Epodes 16.11-12 (tr. C.E. Bennett):
The savage conqueror shall stand, alas! upon the ashes of our city, and the horseman shall trample it with clattering hoof...

barbarus heu cineres insistet victor et urbem
    eques sonante verberabit ungula...
Ezekiel 26.11 (KJV):
With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong garrisons shall go down to the ground.
