These are ubiquitous throughout Latin literature. Some are in religious 
contexts, such as Horace's Fons Bandusiae; some are threatening, such as 
Horace's Ship of State, his Pyrhha poem, and various passages of the Aeneid; 
some seem simply evocative of home and happiness, such as Catullus' Lydiae 
lacus" in Poem 31.
