Bilbilis
 
Martial (c.A.D. 40–c.A.D. 104)
 
 
VERONA docti syllabas amat uatis,
  Marone felix Mantua est,
censetur Aponi Liuio suo tellus
  Stellaque nec Flacco minus,
Apollodoro plaudit imbrifer Nilus,        5
  Nasone Paeligni sonant,
duosque Senecas unicumque Lucanum
  facunda loquitur Corduba,
gaudent iocosae Canio suo Gades,
  Emerita Deciano meo:        10
te, Liciniane, gloriabitur nostra,
  nec me tacebit Bilbilis.
