Petronius (d. c.A.D. 66)
 
 
ME niue candenti petiit modo Iulia. rebar
  igne carere niuem: nix tamen ignis erat.
quid niue frigidius? nostrum tamen urere pectus
  nix potuit manibus, Iulia, missa tuis.
quis locus insidiis dabitur mihi tutus amoris,        5
  frigore concreta si latet ignis aqua?
Iulia sola potes nostras exstinguere flammas:
  non niue, non glacie, sed potes igne pari.
