88 d.C.

SILIUS ITALICUS, Punica, XIII, 365-368


fama est, cum laceris Actaeon flebile membris            

supplicium lueret spectatae <in> fonte Dianae,

attonitum nouitate mali fugisse parentem

per freta Aristaeum et Sardoos isse recessus.

Legend also tells that, when Actaeon was torn to pieces – the grievous penalty he suffered for seeing Diana while bathing – his father, Aristaeus, appaled by so strange a tragedy, fled across the sea to the bays of Sardinia, guided, it is said, by his mother, Carene, to this unknow land.
