He sends his Book to Caesius
 
Martial (c.A.D. 40–c.A.D. 104)
 
 
NOSTI si bene Caesium, libelle,
  montanae decus Vmbriae Sabinum,
Auli municipem mei Pudentis,
illi tu dabis haec uel occupato.
instent mille licet premantque curae,        5
nostris carminibus tamen uacabit.
nam me diligit ille proximumque
Turni nobilibus leget libellis.
o quantum mihi nominis paratur!
o quae gloria! quam frequens amator!        10
te conuiuia, te forum sonabit,
aedes, compita, porticus, tabernae.
uni mitteris, omnibus legeris.
