Imitation par Ausone (Epit. 31)

Dic, canis, hic cuius tumulus ? - Canis. - At canis hic quis ? - Diogenes. - Obiit ? - Non obiit, sed abit. - Diogenes cui pera penus, cui dolia sedes. Ad Manes abiit ? - Cerberus inde vetat. - Quonam igitur ? - Clari flagrat qua stella Leonis. Additus est iustae nunc canis Erigonae.
