Lac mihi non aestate novum, non frigore defit;
Canto quae solitus, si quando armenta vocabat,
Ampliion Dircaeus in Actaeo Aracintho.
Nec sum adeo informis: nuper me in litore vidi,
Cum placidam ventis staret mare; non ego Daphnim
Judice te metuam, si numquam fallit imago. — Ecl., IL

3. Consumptis his forte aliis, ut vertere morsus
Exiguam in Cererem peuuria adegit edendi
Et violare mauu malisque audacibus orbem
Fatalis crusti patulis nec parcere quadris,
"Heus, etiam mensas consumimus!" inquit lulus;
Nec plura adludens. Ea vox audita laborum
Prima tulit finem, primamque loquentis ab ore
Eripuit pater, ac stupefaccus numine pressit. ,

Sen., VIL
