Vergil, Aeneid VI 282-294

In mediō rāmōs annōsaque bracchia pandit

ulmus opāca, ingēns, quam sēdem Somnia vulgō

vāna tenēre ferunt, foliīsque sub omnibus haerent.

multaque praetereā variārum mōnstra ferārum,285

Centaurī in foribus stabulant Scyllaeque bifōrmēs

et centumgeminus Briareus ac bēlua Lernae

horrendum strīdēns, flammīsque armāta Chimaera,

Gorgones Harpyïaeque et fōrma tricorporis umbrae.

Corripit hīc subitā trepidus formīdine ferrum290

Aenēās strictamque aciem venientibus offert,

et nī docta comes tenuīs sine corpore vītās

admoneat volitāre cavā sub imāgine fōrmae,

inruat et frūstrā ferrō dīverberet umbrās.
