There once was a wife of Nero,
Who cooked every night for her hero.
Ignoring the itchin' she fiddled him in the kitchen
And wound up with a burning in her pot.

The 1642 opera by Monteverdi "The Coronation of Poppea" is one of the best operas ever. The whole thing is on youtube with eminenly fappable Danielle de Neise as Poppea and it is pretty close to being porn.

Oh yeah, every single person in the opera is an immoral creep. Except maybe Seneca, who is forced to kill himself by Nero.

Roses are red,
their leaves are greener,
She's pretty hot,
I'd Poppaea her Sabina.

Nero has a wife that is named sabina
and it was said that there was no finer
her husband was nero
but she was the hero
for she lent to the legion her vagina

When speaking of "ancient Greek", that usually means Attic. During Nero's reign, it would have been Koine.
