Reading at Random in Classical Literature

Catullus, 26

Furi, villula nostra non ad Austri
flatus oppositast neque ad Favoni
nec saevi Boreae aut Apheliotae,
verum ad milia quindecim et ducentos.
o ventum horribilem atque pestilentem!

Furius, our little farmhouse is not exposed to the blasts of the South Wind, nor the West Wind, nor the fierce North Wind or the East Wind, but to 15,200 sesterces. O what a fearful and pestilential wind!
