Tarquinius Priscus

Tarquin a Greek at Corinth born and bred,
Who from his Country for Sepition fled.
Is entertain'd at Rome, and in short time.
By wealth and favour doth to honour climbe;
He after Martius death the Kingdome had,
A hundred Senators he more did add.
Wars with the Latins he again renews,
And Nations twelve of Tuscany subdues,
To such rude triumphs as young Rome then had,
Some State and splendor did this Priscus add:
Thirty eight years (this stronger born) did reign,
And after all, by Ancus Sons was slain.
