Vergil, Aeneid XI 648-663

At mediās inter caedēs exsultat Amāzōn

ūnum exserta latus pūgnae, pharetrāta Camilla,

et nunc lenta manū spargēns hastīlia dēnset,650

nunc validam dextrā rapit indēfessa bipennem;

aureus ex umerō sonat arcus et arma Diānae.

Illa etiam, sī quandō in tergum pulsa recessit,

spīcula conversō fugientia dērigit arcū.

At circum lēctae comitēs, Lārīnaque virgō655

Tullaque et aerātam quatiēns Tarpēia secūrim,

Ītalides, quās ipsa decus sibi dīa Camilla

dēlēgit pācisque bonās bellīque ministrās:

quālēs Thrēiciae cum flūmina Thermōdontis

pulsant et pīctīs bellantur Amāzones armīs,660

seu circum Hippolytēn seu cum sē Martia currū

Penthesilēa refert, māgnōque ululante tumultū

fēminea exsultant lūnātīs agmina peltīs.
