Proposition: 1.15: Opposite Angles on Intersecting Straight Lines
(Proposition 15 from Book 1 of Euclid's “Elements”)
If two straight lines cut one another then they make the vertically opposite angles equal to one another.
 For let the two straight lines $AB$ and $CD$ cut one another at the point $E$.
 I say that angle $AEC$ is equal to (angle) $DEB$, and (angle) $CEB$ to (angle) $AED$.
Modern Formulation
If two straight lines \(AB\) and \(CD\) intersect one another at one point \(E\), their opposite angles are equal.
