Heathcote William Garrod, comp. (1878–1960).  The Oxford Book of Latin Verse.  1912.
 
In Memory of his Teacher, Nepotianus
 
Ausonius (c.310–c.395)
 
 
FACETE, comis, animo iuuenali senex,
  cui felle nullo, melle multo mens madens
aeuum per omne nil amarum miscuit,
medulla nostri, Nepotiane, pectoris:
tam seriorum quam iocorum particeps,        5
taciturne, Amyclas ut silendo uiceris,
te fabulantem non Vlixes linqueret,
liquit canentis qui melodas uirgines:
probe et pudice, parce, frugi, abstemie:
facunde, nulli rhetorum cedens stilo,        10
et disputator ad Cleanthen stoicus,
Scaurum Probumque corde callens intimo
et Epirote Cinea memor magis:
sodalis et conuictor, hospes iugiter,
parum quod hospes, mentis agitator meae.        15
consilia nullus mente tam pura dedit
uel altiore conditu texit data.
honore gesti praesidatus inclitus,
decies nouenas functus annorum uices,
duos relinquens liberos, mortem oppetis,        20
dolore multo quam tuorum tam meo.
