At the Tomb of Hector
 
Germanicus Caesar (15 B.C.–A.D. 19)
 
 
MARTIA progenies, Hector, tellure sub ima
  (fas audire tamen si mea uerba tibi),
respira, quoniam uindex tibi contigit heres,
  qui patriae famam proferat usque tuae.
Ilios en surgit rursum inclita, gens colit illam        5
  te Marte inferior, Martis amica tamen.
Myrmidonas periisse omnes dic, Hector, Achilli,
  Thessaliam et magnis esse sub Aeneadis.
