    • 1580, Michel de Montaigne , De la cruauté, Essais
      Les Agrigentins avaient en usage commun d’enterrer sérieusement les bêtes qu’ils avaient eu chères, comme les chevaux de quelque rare mérite, les chiens et les oiseaux utiles, ou même qui avaient servi de passe-temps à leurs enfants : et la magnificence qui leur était ordinaire en toutes autres choses paraissait aussi singulièrement à la somptuosité et nombre de monuments élevés à cette fin, qui ont duré en parade plusieurs siècles depuis.
      The Agrigentines had a common use solemnly to inter the beasts they had a kindness for, as horses of some rare quality, dogs, and useful birds, and even those that had only been kept to divert their children; and the magnificence that was ordinary with them in all other things, also particularly appeared in the sumptuosity and numbers of monuments erected to this end, and which remained in their beauty several ages after.
