• Expende Hannibalem ; quot libras in duce summo
'Invenies ? hic est quem non capit Africa Mauro
* Percussa Oceano Niloque admota tepenti,
* Rursus ad Æthiopum populos altosque elephantos.
• Additur imperiis Hispania : Pyrenæum
• Transilit. Opposuit natura Alpemque nivemque :
• Diducit scopulos et montem rumpit aceto.
Jam tenet Italiam : tamen ultra pergere tendit :
«Actum,” inquit,“ nihil est, nisi Pæno milite portas
'Frangimus et media vexillum pono Suburra.”
• (O qualis facies et quali digna tabella,
• Quum Gætula ducem portaret bellua luscum !)
* Exitus ergo quis est ? O gloria! vincitur idem
. Nempe et in exsilium præceps fugit, atque ibi magnus

Mirandusque cliens sedet ad prætoria regis,
• Donec Bithyno libeat vigilare tyranno.
• Finem animæ, quæ res humanas miscuit olim,
• Non gladii, non saxa dabunt, nec tela ; sed ille
• Cannarum vindex et tanti sanguinis ultor,
* Annulus. I, demens, et sævas curre per Alpes,
• Ut pueris placeas et declamatio fias!

Juvenal, Sat. X. 147—167.
