He conceives a vile hope and tires to steal upon her, walking on tiptoe, as his heart flutters. Others, including Martial and Petroniuswere thought to have added more verses in imitation of the originals.

The episode gave him a lasting hatred of asses and a willingness to see them destroyed in his honour. Only three metres are used.

In like manner he was confounded by the Italians with Mutunus or Muttunus, the personification of the fructifying power in nature Salmas. However, he played a more important role in the countryside, where he was seen as a guardian deity.
