Lucan (39–65 A.D.)
 
Translated by Joseph Addison

THE WINDING rocks a spacious harbor frame,
That from the great Alcides takes its name:
Fenced to the west, and to the north it lies;
But when the winds in southern quarters rise,
Ships, from their anchors torn, become their sport,        5
And sudden tempests rage within the port.
