  • Latin for "New Order of the Ages." Appears on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, along with the phrase Annuit Coeptis.

    Wikipedia says it's from the fourth Eclogue of Virgil, lines 5-8:

    Ultima Cumaei venit iam carminis aetas;

    magnus ab integro saeclorum nascitur ordo.

    iam redit et Virgo, redeunt Saturnia regna,

    iam nova progenies caelo demittitur alto.
