The Argo seen by a Shepherd who has never seen a Ship
 
L. Accius
 
 
  TANTA moles labitur
fremibunda ex alto ingenti sonitu et spiritu.
prae se undas uoluit, uertics ui suscitat:
ruit prolapsa, pelagus respargit reflat.
ita dum interruptum credas nimbum uoluier,        5
dum quod sublime uentis expulsum rapi
saxum aut procllis, uel globosos turbines
existere ictos undis concursantibus:
nisi quas terrestris pontus strages conciet,
aut forte Triton fuscina euertens specus        10
supter radices penitus undante in freto
molem ex profundo saxeam ad caelum euehit.
