The text above the image reads "Deleurs tyrans comme Pompée, ajourné les rois dans l'écat de leur puissance au tribunal qui juge les rois et les nations, souri au supplice même, et dont au rapport de 'l'histoire, immortalisé par une admirable poésie, les concerts sacrés ne s'évanouirent que dans la flamme des bûchers."

This translates to "their tyrants like Pompey, adjourned kings in the state of their power to the tribunal which judges kings and nations, smiled at the torture itself, and of which in relation to history, immortalized by admirable poetry, the sacred concerts fainted only in the flames of the pyres."
