EXEOI monumentum aere perennius Regalique situ pyramidum altius, Quod non imber edax, non Aquilo impotens Possit diruere aut innumerabilis Annorum series et fuga temporum.

Seite 340 - ... agedum, pauca accipe contra. primum ego me illorum dederim quibus esse poetas excerpam numero: neque enim concludere versum 40 dixeris esse satis; neque si qui scribat uti nos sermoni propiora, putes hunc esse poetam, ingenium cui sit, cui mens divinior atque os magna sonaturum, des nominis huius honorem.
