Caelius resists the Onset of the Istri
 
Quintus Ennius (239–169? B.C.)
 
 
VNDIQVE conueniunt uelut imber tela tribuno:
configunt parmam, tinnit hastilibus umbo,
aerato sonitu galeae, sed nec pote quisquam
undique nitendo corpus discerpere ferro:
semper abundantes hastas frangitque quatitque.        5
totum sudor habet corpus multumque laborat,
nec respirandi fit copia: praepete ferro
Histri tela manu iacientes sollicitabant.
