And the novelties poured out from the endless riches


Explanation:
You must have an expression -idiom in English: it is Greek mythology - a horn that gives up gold coins with no end - cornucope?
NOVELTIES (could be replaced by "innovations" or "inventions")
POURED OUT - could be replaced by "spread" "come out", "sprinkle".
