His Own Epitaph
 
Lucan (?) (A.D. 39–A.D. 65)
 
 
CORDVBA me genuit, rapuit Nero, praelia dixi.
  quae gessere pares hinc socer, inde gener.
continuo numquam direxi carmina ductu,
  quae tractim serpant: plus mihi comma placet.
fulminis in morem, quae sint miranda, citentur:        5
  haec uere sapiet dictio, quae feriet!
