Martial (c.A.D. 40–c.A.D. 104)
 
 
EDE tuos tandem populo, Faustine, libellos
  et cultum docto pectore profer opus,
quod nec Cecropiae damnent Pandionis arces
  nec sileant nostri praetereantque senes.
ante foris stantem dubitas admittere Famam        5
  teque piget curae praemia ferre tuae?
post te uicturae per te quoque uiuere chartae
  incipiant: cineri gloria sera uenit.
