In Catilinam 2.23:
Quo autem pacto illi Appenninum atque illas pruinas ac nives perferent? nisi idcirco se facilius hiemem toleraturos putant, quod nudi in conviviis saltare didicerunt.
And by what means would those effete young men bear that frost and snow on Mount Appennius? Unless, perhaps, by that fact they think that they will more easily tolerate the winter, because they had learned to dance naked at parties.
quos pexo capillo nitidos aut inberbis aut bene barbatos videtis, manicatis et talaribus tunicis velis amictos, non togis; quorum omnis industria vitae et vigilandi labor in antelucanis cenis expromitur.
