352: <<Non enim fas est preterire penitus tantae gentis virtutem, quae Gallorum gentem asperam, audacem, bellicosam et cunctis regnis terribilem ipsisque etiam Romanis imperio terrarum florentibus formidabilem, suis armis subigere et sibi retinere potuit.
El equivoco obsceno (subegit Caesarem), tipico de los versos fescenninos, no deja lugar a dudas y juega --aunque ambiguamente-- con la acepcion de subyugar (subigere).
The verb cevere denotes the movements of a male who is the receptive partner in anal intercourse,(33) and although its etymology has not been firmly established, it is certainly not a Greek borrowing.(34) Also noteworthy are various Latin metaphors, not deriving from Greek, whose very existence suggests a general familiarity with the realities of sexual experience between males: these include the use of caedere, percidere, or subigere for pedicare(35) and of the noun pullus (`young animal, chick') to refer to a youth loved by a man.
