Bandusia
 
Horace (65 B.C.–8 B.C.)
 
 
OFONS Bandusiae splendidior uitro,
  dulci digne mero non sine floribus,
cras donaberis haedo,
  cui frons turgida cornibus
 
primis et uenerem et proelia destinat:        5
frustra, nam gelidos inficiet tibi
  rubro sanguine riuos
    lasciui suboles gregis.
 
te flagrantis atrox hora Caniculae
nescit tangere, tu frigus amabile        10
  fessis uomere tauris
    praebes et pecori uago.
 
fies nobilium tu quoque fontium,
me dicente cauis inpositam ilicem
  saxis, unde loquaces        15
    lymphae desiliunt tuae.
