    • 1825, Vincenzo Monti, transl., Iliade [Iliad], Milan: Giovanni Resnati e Gius. Bernardoni di Gio, translation of Ἰλιάς (Iliás) by Homer, published 1840, Book 9, lines 6–12, page 182:
      in quella guisa, ¶ Che il pescoso Oceàno si rabbuffa, ¶ Quando improvviso dalla tracia tana ¶ Di Ponente sorgiunge e d’Aquilone ¶ L’impetuoso soffio; alto s’estolle ¶ L’onda e si sparge di molt’alga il lido; ¶ Tale è l’interna degli Achei tempesta.
      In a manner similar to how the fishful ocean swells when, from the Thracian lair, suddenly the impetuous blowing of the west and north winds comes, [and] the wave rises high, scattering lots of algae on the beach; such is the Achaeans’ inner storm.
