Vergil, Aeneid IV 160-172

Intereā magnō miscērī murmure caelum160

incipit, īnsequitur commixtā grandine nimbus,

et Tyriī comitēs passim et Trōiāna iuventūs

Dardaniusque nepōs Veneris dīversa per agrōs

tēcta metū petiēre; ruunt dē montibus amnēs.

Spēluncam Dīdō dux et Trōiānus eandem165

dēveniunt. Prīma et Tellūs et prōnuba Iūnō

dant signum; fulsēre ignēs et cōnscius aethēr

cōnubiīs summōque ululārunt vertice nymphae.

Ille diēs prīmus lētī prīmusque malōrum

causa fuit; neque enim speciē fāmāve movētur170

nec iam fūrtīvum Dīdō meditātur amōrem:

coniugium vocat, hōc praetēxit nōmine culpam.
