"What dost thou in this moat?
Now get thee gone; and since thou 'rt still alive,
Know that a neighbor of mine, Vitaliano,
Will have his seat here on my left-hand side.
A Paduan am I with these Florentines;
Full many a time they thunder in mine ears,
Exclaiming, 'Come the sovereign cavalier,
He who shall bring the satchel with three goats'".
Inferno, XVII 66 – 73
