I was hoping I could get a translation for this, it comes from a comment on Bel and the Dragon by a medieval writer Ambrosius. Thank you!!!!!!!!!

"Coluerunt Babylonii & serpentem draconem, quem occidit Daniel homo Dei, cuius similitudinem habent."

"The Babylonians also worshiped a creeping/crawling dragon (which Daniel, a man of god, killed), of which they bear a likeness."
Horae quidem cedunt et dies et menses et anni, nec praeteritum tempus umquam revertitur nec quid sequatur sciri potest. Quod cuique temporis ad vivendum datur, eo debet esse contentus. --Cicero, De Senectute
