Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 B.C.–43 B.C.)
 
 
ODECVS Argolicum, quin puppim flectis, Vlixes,
auribus ut nostros possis agnoscere cantus?
nam nemo haec umquam est transuectus caerula cursu,
quin prius adstiterit uocum dulcedine captus,
post, uariis auido satiatus pectore Musis,        5
doctior ad patrias lapsus peruenerit oras.
nos graue certamen belli clademque tenemus
Graecia quam Troiae diuino numine uexit,
omneque quod celat frugum uix indiga tellus.
