On the Death of Crispus
 
Seneca, the younger (c.3 B.C.–A.D. 65)
 
 
ABLATVS mihi Crispus est amicus,
  pro quo si pretium dari liceret,
nostros diuiderem libenter annos.
nunc pars optima me mei reliquit,
Crispus, praesidium meum, uoluptas,        5
pectus, deliciae: nihil sine illo
laetum mens mea iam putabit esse.
consumptus male debilisque uiuam:
plus quam dimidium mei recessit.
