‘The Ledean stars so famed for love Wondered at us from above’
 
Martial (c.A.D. 40–c.A.D. 104)
 
 
SI, Lucane, tibi uel si tibi, Tulle, darentur
  qualia Ledaei fata Lacones habent,
nobilis haec esset pietatis rixa duobus,
  quod pro fratre mori uellet uterque prior,
diceret infernas et qui prior isset ad umbras:        5
  ‘Viue tuo, frater, tempore, uiue meo.’
