En í látínu er metaphora svá optast sett, at framfærðir hlutir eru ókendir, en þó finz hvártveggja sem Óvidiús segir:
Tiphis et Antomedon dicat amoris ego.
Hann kallar kerrugæti eða stýrimann ástar.
In Latin however metaphora is most often used without a determinant, and yet each type may be found, as Ovid says: [...] He calls (Tiphis) the charioteer or helmsman of love.
