Vergil, Aeneid I 132-141

'Tantane vōs generis tenuit fīdūcia vestrī?

Iam caelum terramque meō sine nūmine, ventī,

miscēre et tantās audētis tollere mōlēs?

quōs ego—sed mōtōs praestat compōnere flūctūs.135

Post mihi nōn similī poenā commissa luētis.

Mātūrāte fugam rēgīque haec dīcite vestrō:

nōn illī imperium pelagī saevumque tridentem,

sed mihi sorte datum. Tenet ille immānia saxa,

vestrās, Eure, domōs; illā sē iactet in aulā140

Aeolus et clausō ventōrum carcere rēgnet.'
