E pluribus unum, Latin for "Out of a lot of, one", is often a motto requested by Pierre Eugene du Simitiere (originally Pierre-Eugène Ducimetière) and found in 1776 on the Seal of the United States, together with Annuit cptis and Novus ordo seclorum, and adopted by an Act of Congress in 1782. The phrase is similar to some Latin translation of a variation of Heraclitus' 10th fragment, "Out of all points a person, one particular out of all issues." A variant on the phrase was applied in Moretum, a poem attributed to Virgil but using the actual author unknown. Within the poem text, color est e pluribus unus describes the blending of colors into a person. St Augustine employed a variant of the phrase, ex pluribus unum, in his Confessions. In the time with the American Revolution, the exact phrase appeared prominently around the title page of a popular periodical, The Gentleman's Magazine, which collected content articles from quite a few sources into a person "magazine".
