Quintus Ennius (239-169 BC) taught Latin and Greek in Rome. His most important work are the Annales ("Chronicles") of Rome, of which only fragments have been preserved.

Annales 2, fragment 22.
Ostia munita est; idem loca navibus pulchris munda facit, nautisque mari quaesentibus vitam. Ostia is fortified; and the same king [Ancus Marcius] creates an attractive harbour for the beautiful ships, and for the sailors who make a living from the sea.
