And the gleam thereof went up to heaven, and all the earth round about laughed by reason of the flashing of bronze; and there went up a din from beneath the feet of men; and in their midst goodly Achilles arrayed him for battle. 19.363. /and the bossed shields, the corselets with massive plates, and the ashen spears.

8. Cicero, De Oratore, 1.217 (2nd cent. BCE - 1st cent. BCE)

1.217. Nam si ut quisque in aliqua arte et facultate excellens aliam quoque artem sibi adsumpserit, is perficiet ut, quod praeterea sciet, id eius, in quo excellet, pars quaedam esse videatur, licet ista ratione dicamus pila bene et duodecim scriptis ludere proprium esse iuris civilis, quoniam utrumque eorum P. Mucius optime fecerit; eademque ratione dicantur ei quos fusikou/s Graeci nomit eidem poetae, quoniam Empedocles physicus egregium poema fecerit. At hoc ne philosophi quidem ipsi, qui omnia sicut propria sua esse atque a se possideri volunt, dicere audent, geometriam aut musicam philosophi esse, quia Platonem omnes in illis artibus praestantissimum fuisse fateantur.
9. Lucretius Carus, On The Nature of Things, 1.38, 1.112-1.126, 1.635-1.729, 1.731-1.920, 1.1014-1.1015, 1.1064, 2.325-2.327, 2.600-2.643, 2.645, 2.1001, 2.1039, 3.18-3.22, 3.371, 5.8, 5.110-5.121, 5.490-5.491, 5.622, 5.1204, 6.76, 6.286, 6.388, 6.644, 6.670, 6.1228 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. BCE)

12. Quintilian, Institutes of Oratory, 1.4.4, 10.1.52-10.1.58 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

1.4.4.  Nor is it sufficient to have read the poets only; every kind of writer must be carefully studied, not merely for the subject matter, but for the vocabulary; for words often acquire authority from their use by a particular author. Nor can such training be regarded as complete if it stop short of music, for the teacher of literature has to speak of metre and rhythm: nor again if he be ignorant of astronomy, can he understand the poets; for they, to mention no further points, frequently give their indications of time by reference to the rising and setting of the stars. Ignorance of philosophy is an equal drawback, since there are numerous passages in almost every poem based on the most intricate questions of natural philosophy, while among the Greeks we have Empedocles and among our own poets Varro and Lucretius, all of whom have expounded their philosophies in verse.
