VENDIDIT hic Latium populis agrosque Quiritum
eripuit: fixit leges pretio atque refixit.
 
ii

Ceu canis umbrosam lustrans Gortynia uallem,
si celeris potuit ceruae comprendere lustra,
saeuit in absentem et circum uestigia latrans        5
aethera per nitidum tenues sectatur odores:
non amnes illam medii, non ardua tardant,
perdita nec serae meminit decedere nocti.
