Giace della Sicania al golfo avanti un’isoletta
che a Plemmirio ondoso è posta incontro, e
dagli antichi è detta per nome Ortigia.
A quest’isola è fama, che per vie sotto il mare
il greco Alfeo vien, da Doride intatto,
infin d’Arcadia per bocca d’Aretusa a mescolarsi
con l’onde di Sicilia…
(Virgilio, Eneide, libro III-1095)
