    « Quid est, Catulle? quid moraris emori?
    sella in curuli struma Nonius sedet,
    per consulatum peierat Vatinius:
    quid est, Catulle? quid moraris emori? »

    [Gaius Valerius Catullus, Carme 52]

No. 11

Aurelius & Furius, true comrades,
whether Catullus penetrates to where in
outermost India booms the eastern ocean's
wonderful thunder;

whether he stops with Arabs or Hyrcani,
Parthian bowmen or nomadic Sagae;
or goes to Egypt, which the Nile so richly
dyes, overflowing;
