Rain Falling Off the Earth

c. 1150 Commentarii (Macrobius Ambrosius Theodosius) in Somnium Scipionis (Cicero)

… men were created subject to this law, to keep to that globe, which you see in the centre of this region and which is called the Earth; and to them a soul was given formed from those everlasting fires, which you mortals call constellations and stars, that, round and spherical in form, alive with divine intelligences, complete their orbits and circles with marvellous swiftness.

Cicero    (Translated by W. D. Pearman)
