- αʹ Cicero, Ad Quintum Fratrem 3.1:
|Romam cum venissem a. d. XIII. Kal. Octobres, absolutum offendi in aedibus tuis tectum, quod supra conclavia non placuerat tibi esse multorum fastigiorum: id nunc honeste vergit in tectum inferioris porticus.||When I got to Rome on September 19, I found that the roof of your house—above the rooms, where you didn't want there to be so many gables—had been finished; it now slopes handsomely down to the roof of the lower colonnade.|
- βʹ Cicero, Ad Atticum 16.6:
|Sed tamen perspice quo ista vergant mihique aut scribe aut, quod multo malim, adfer ipse.||But anyway, look into which way things are leaning and either write me or, what I'd much prefer, let me know in person.|
