Eureka[1] fuit machina hexametris Latinis componendis, ab Ioanne Clark (1785—1853) e Bruga Walteri, sodali amicorum, constructa. Anno 1830 Clark machinam incepit et anno 1845 in medium exposuit.

Eureka versus unius schematis metricae et grammaticae componebat:

1 2 3 4 5 6
dactylus trochaeus iambus molossus dactylus trochaeus
adiectivum n./acc. pl. neutrius nomen, n./acc. pl. neutrius adverbium (vel parenthesis) verbum, 3 pl. ind. pr. act. nomen, n./acc. pl. neutrius adiectivum n./acc. pl. neutrius
Martia castra foris praenarrant proelia multa
pessima regna domi producunt vulnera mira
turpia templa fere promittunt iurgia densa

Plus quam 26 000 000 versus huiusmodi componere potest.
