Inscriptions Sur le socle du médaillon:

Du sang le plus auguste elle a reçu le jour
Et son moindre mérite est sa haute naissance
Minerve avec tendresse éleva son enfance
Elle en fit l'ornement d'une brillante cour
Aujourd'hui tous les dieux inspirés par l'Amour
Comblent par son hymen le bonheur de la France.


The August blood she has recieved on the day
And its lesser merit is its high birth
Minerva tenderly lifted up his childhood
She made an ornament of a brilliant Court
Today all gods inspired by love
Fill the happiness of France by her hymen.
