Vergil, Aeneid III 278-293

Ergō īnspērātā tandem tellūre potītī

lūstrāmurque Iovī vōtīsque incendimus ārās,

Actiaque Īliacīs celebrāmus lītora lūdīs.280

Exercent patriās oleō lābente palaestrās

nūdātī sociī: iuvat ēvāsisse tot urbēs

Argolicās mediōsque fugam tenuisse per hostīs.

Intereā magnum sōl circumvolvitur annum

et glaciālis hiems Aquilōnibus asperat undās.285

aere cavō clipeum, magnī gestāmen Abantis,

postibus adversīs fīgō et rem carmine signō:

>Aenēās haec dē Danaīs victōribus arma;

Linquere tum portūs iubeō et cōnsīdere trānstrīs.

certātim sociī feriunt mare et aequora verrunt:290

Prōtinus āëriās Phaeācum abscondimus arcēs

lītoraque Ēpīrī legimus portūque subīmus

Chāoniō et celsam Būthrōtī accēdimus urbem.
