Versus aureus

E Vicipaedia

Versus aureus est genus proprium hexametri dactylici latini, quod videtur recentiori aetate ad versus Latinos censendos itemque componendos excogitatum esse. [1]

Cuius generis sit versus aureus[recensere | fontem recensere]

Versus aureus cum specie varie primum a grammaticis definitus esset, maiorem auctoritatem definitioni grammatici libri a Burles anno 1652 confecto adiudicatam esse videtur[2].

"Si quis versus constat ex duobus adiectivis, duobus substantivis et verbo tantum, primo quidem adiectivo consentiente substantivo primo, secundo vero cum secundo, et verbum in medio positum, dicitur versus aureus: ut
Lurida terribiles miscent aconita novercae . ( P. Ovidius Naso, Metamorph .
Pendula flaventem pingebat bractea crinem. " [3]

Hi versi autem more abVAB compositi sunt, in qua duo adjectiva in initio lineae et duo nomina in fine ordine inter se ponuntur.
