Petronius (d. c.A.D. 66)
 
 
ILLIC alternis depugnat pontus et aer,
  hic riuo tenui peruia ridet humus.
illic demersas conplorat nauita puppis,
  hic pastor miti perluit amne pecus.
illic inmanis mors obuia soluit hiatus,        5
  hic gaudet curua falce recisa Ceres.
illic inter aquas urit sitis arida fauces,
  hic dea fert iuncto basia multa uiro.
nauiget et fluctus lasset mendicus Vlixes:
  in terris uiuit candida Penelope!        10
