A Gallic Baiae
 
Apollinaris Sidonius (fl. 455–75)
 
 
SI quis Auitacum dignaris uisere nostrum,
  non tibi displiceat: sic quod habes placeat.
aemula Baiano tolluntur culmina cono
  parque coturnato uertice fulget apex.
garrula Gauranis plus murmurat unda fluentis        5
  contigui collis lapsa supercilio.
Lucrinum stagnum diues Campania nollet,
  aequora si nostri cerneret illa lacus.
illud puniceis ornatur litus echinis,
  piscibus in nostris, hospes, utrumque uides.        10
si libet et placido partiris gaudia corde,
  quisquis ades, Baias tu facis hic animo.
