Martial (c.A.D. 40–c.A.D. 104)
 
 
VNCTIS falciferi senis diebus,
  regnator quibus imperat fritillus,
uersu ludere non laborioso
permittis, puto, pileata Roma.
risisti; licet ergo, nec uetamur.        5
pallentes procul hinc abite curae;
quidquid uenerit obuium, loquamur
morosa sine cogitatione.
misce dimidios, puer, trientis,
quales Pythagoras dabat Neroni;        10
misce, Dindyme, sed frequentiores.
possum nihil ego sobrius; bibenti
succurrent mihi quindecim poetae.
da nunc basia, sed Catulliana:
quae si tot fuerint quot ille dixit,        15
donabo tibi passerem Catulli.
