1. Labor omnia vincit
Labor omnia vincit is a latin term that appears in the IUOE emblem on this marker. It is a common Latin phrase meaning "labor conquers all things".
The phrase appears in Virgil's Georgics, Book I, in the form Labor omnia uicit improbus ("uphill work overcame all things"). The poem was written in support of Augustus Caesar's "Back to the land" policy, aimed at encouraging more Romans to become farmers.
