The ascetic sees demons in the shape of beasts, and the remnants of the Gates of Ctesiphon, to which shapes (demons) piled all about them!
Their black cloaks are fastened by dead men's bones!
They flog one another, and laugh at their aching limbs and burning caresses...
Their hair fastened by vipers, and the faces bear the resemblance of: Cain, Sodom, and Pilate, Nero stares at Antony, as Judas yelps: "Thanks to me, God saved the world!"
Many of those demonic faces are made of wolf’s skin, they are envious of Antony's dog's bone meal.
The old ones, older than written time, from the pre-Adamic era, are all dried up, like mummies—
Antony's mind is fragmented, his thoughts twisted, imps are trying to rope and tie him from the windings of entrails!
There is no manifestation, not today, not like other days.
One of the old ones snatches the bone from Antony's dog.
And the nightmare that had emerged as if through a hole in the wall and formed itself out of a blue mist, dissipates.
And a second vision comes into making.
The High Priest of Saturn.
Ere long, he grows bright, as darkness envelopes his hollow eye sockets!
He opens his mouth it is as a deserted pit—
With a long breath, and panting pulse he decries: "How irksome you make me! Hector, I gathered his bones, lest the worms get them, be a martyr, or sin, so I can collect yours!" He tells Saint Antony.
