Reading at Random in Classical Literature
The famous opening of Tacitus’ Annals: the first clause forms a hexameter.
urbem Romam a principio reges habuere; libertatem et consulatum L. Brutus instituit.
From the beginning Rome was under the control of kings; Lucius Brutus established liberty and the consulship.
