The Greeks set sail from Troy
 
M. Pacuvius (220–130 B.C.)
 
 
SIC profectione laeti piscium lasciuiam
intuemur, nec tuendi satietas capier potest.
interea prope iam occidente sole inhorrescit mare,
tenebrae conduplicantur noctisque et nimbum obcaecat nigror,
flamma inter nuber coruscat, caelum tonitru contremit,        5
grando mixta imbri largifico subita praecipitans cadit,
undique omnes uenti erumpunt, saeui existunt turbines,
feruit aestu pelagus.
