As some of you may know, I'm working on a Flashman/ASOIAF crossover fic.
In _Flashman on the March,_ Flashy overhears another Britisher at the court
of King Theodore of Abyssinia muttering a Latin quote, and finds out that
it means "At the mercy of Tiberius."

Is this a real quote, and if so, from where?  My Google skills aren't
helping today for some reason, and I do want it---John Charity Spring is
along in Kings Landing, and he does love him some Latin quotes.
