From Chapter 31 of the Decline & Fall

Hinc albi, Clitumne, Greges, et maxima taurus
Victima saepe, tuo perfusi flumine sacro,
Romanos ad templa Deum duxere triumphos. Georg. ii. 147.

Besides Virgil, most of the Latin poets, Propertius, Lucan, Silius Italicus, Claudian, etc., whose passages may be found in Cluverius and Addison, have celebrated the triumphal victims of Clitumnus.
