Lubrano: Suaviludia Musarum

Suaviludia Musarum ad Sebethi ripam by Giacomo Lubrano (1690)

The Sebethus river flows through Campania into the sea between Naples and Herculaneum. This is a collection of 10 books of epigrams, mostly on the long side but I will find some nice distichs here for sure. For example, 1.89: Caesar allatum ad se Pompei caput flevit
Caesar ad abscissum Magni caput, indice fletu
Hoc doluit, manibus non periisse suis.
