    • 16 BCE, Ovid, Amores 3.14:
      quis furor est, quae nocte latent, in luce fateri,
      et quae clam facias facta referre palam?
      ignoto meretrix corpus iunctura Quiriti
      opposita populum summovet ante sera;
      tu tua prostitues famae peccata sinistrae
      commissi perages indiciumque tui?
      • Translation by Christopher Marlowe
        What madnesse ist to tell night prankes by day,
        And hidden secrets openlie to bewray?
        The strumpet with the stranger will not do,
        Before the roome be deere, and doore put too.
        Will you make shipwracke of your honest name,
        And let the world be witnesse of the same?
