• 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 Pono 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!'
