Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Paulus Syllogus
  Clear, as ever fell from angel’s tongue.  1
  Ugly as apes.  2
Weak as the Roman Chief, who strove to hide
His father’s cot (and once his father’s pride)
By casing a low shed of rural mould
With marble walls, and roof adorned with gold.
  Emanations weak as rain.  4
  Weak as the puny rillets of the hill.  5
