He Abandons the Lists of Love
 
Horace (65 B.C.–8 B.C.)
 
 
VIXI puellis nuper idoneus
  et militaui non sine gloria;
nunc arma defunctumque bello
  barbiton hic paries habebit,
 
laeuom marinae qui Veneris latus        5
custodit. hic, hic ponite lucida
  funalia et uectis et arcus
    oppositis foribus minacis.
 
o quae beatam diua tenes Cyprum et
Memphin carentem Sithonia niue,        10
  regina, sublimi flagello
    tange Chloen semel arrogantem.
