Sidonius Apollinaris, Letters, 5.5


nanV To his friend Syagrius (No indication of date) THOUGH you descend in the male line from an ancestor who was not only consul — that is immaterial — but also (and here is the real point) a poet, from one whose literary achievement would certainly have gained him the honour of a statue, had it not been secured for him already by his official honours, — witness the finished verse that he has left us; and though on this side of his activity his descendants have proved themselves no wise degenerate, yet here we find you picking up a knowledge of the German tongue with the greatest of ease; the feat fills me with indescribable amazement.
