Vergil, Aeneid I 297-304

Haec ait et Māiā genitum dēmittit ab altō,

ut terrae utque novae pateant Karthāginis arcēs

hospitiō Teucrīs, nē fātī nescia Dīdō

fīnibus arcēret. Volat ille per āëra magnum300

rēmigiō ālārum ac Libyae citus astitit ōrīs.

et iam iussa facit, pōnuntque ferōcia Poenī

corda volente deō; in prīmīs rēgīna quiētum

accipit in Teucrōs animum mentemque benignam.
