Quintus Ennius (239–169? B.C.)
 
 
EGO deum genus esse semper dixi et dicam caelitum,
sed eos non curare opinor quid agat humanum genus:
nam si curent, bene bonis sit, male malis, quod nunc abest…
sed superstitiosi uates inpudentesque harioli,
aut inertes aut insani aut quibus egestas imperat,        5
qui sibi semitam non sapiunt, alteri monstrant uiam,
quibus diuitias pollicentur, ab iis drachumam ipsi petunt.
de his diuitiis sibi deducant drachumam, reddant cetera.
