Bradstreet, Anne, 1612?-1672.
Next Ancus Martius sits upon the Throne,
Nephew unto Pompilius dead and gone:
Rome he inlarg'd, new built again the wall,
Much stronger, and more beautiful withal;
A sta•ely Bridge he over Tyber made.
Of Boats and Oars no more they need the aid.
Fair Ostia he built this Town, it stood
Close by the mouth of famous Tyber•oud,
Twenty four years time of his Royal race,
Then unto death unwillingly gives place.
