Marius
 
Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 B.C.–43 B.C.)
 
 
HIC louis altisoni subito pinnata satelles
arboris e trunco serpentis saucia morsu
subrigit, ipsa feris tranfigens unguibus, anguem,
semianimum et uaria grauiter ceruice micantem;
quem se intorquentem lanians rostroque cruentans,        5
iam satiata animo, iam duros ulta dolores,
abicit ecflantem et laceratum adfligit in undas,
seque obitu a solis nitidos conuertit ad ortus.
hanc ubi praepetibus pinnis lapsuque uolantem
conspexit Marius, diuini numinis augur,        10
faustaque signa suae laudis reditusque notauit,
partibus intonuit caeli pater ipse sinistris:
sic aquilae clarum firmauit Iuppiter omen.
