Rufus Festus Avienus, Aratea, (Latin paraphrase of Aratus’ Phaenomena), 105-107 (4th century AD):
The omnipotent father in the vale of Lykaion carried these [bears], formerly accustomed to rough hunts, into the aether and immortalized them with the seized flower of their mother.
has pater omnipotens in valle Lycaei
adsuetas duris quondam venatibus aethrae
intulit et rapto genetricis flore sacravit.
