Comment on Jason and the Hope Commission
Lit. “arms yielded to togas,” i.e., soldiers now wore togas, which in the Roman Empire were worn only in peacetime; in other words, peace had broken out. Cf. J. Th. Jensen and M. J. Goldschmidt, Latinsk-dansk Ordbog [Latin-Danish Dictionary], Copenhagen 1949, p. 752.
