Epitaph of Filimatia
 
Apollinaris Sidonius (fl. 455–75)
 
 
OCCASV celeri feroque raptam
  gnatis quinque patrique coniugique
hoc flentis patriae manus locarunt
matronam Filimatiam sepulcro.
o splendor generis, decus mariti,        5
prudens, casta, decens, seuera, dulcis,
atque ipsis senioribus sequenda,
discordantia quae solent putari
morum commoditate copulasti:
nam uitae comites bonae fuerunt        10
libertas grauis et pudor facetus.
hinc est quod decimam tuae saluti
uix actam trieteridem dolemus
atque in temporibus uigentis aeui
iniuste tibi iusta persoluta.        15
