To his Patron
 
Flavius Felix (circa 480 A.D.)
 
 
SIC tibi florentes aequaeuo germine nati
  indolis aetheriae sidera celsa petant,
sic priscos uincant atauos clarosque parentis
  exsuperent meritis saeclaque longa gerant,
sic subolis numerum transcendat turba nepotum        5
  nobilibusque iuges gaudia tanta toris:
ne sterilem praestes indigno munere Musam,
  utque soles, largus carmina nostra foue,
imperiis ut nostra tuis seruire Thalia
  possit et in melius personet icta chelys.        10
