Classical Pickup Lines

Vergil, Aeneid 1.327-329 (tr. C.H. Sisson):
But how do I address you? For you seem
Not to be a mortal, by your looks,
Nor does your voice sound like a human voice.
A goddess certainly! A sister of Phoebus?
Or perhaps one of the race of Nymphs?

o quam te memorem, virgo? namque haud tibi vultus
mortalis, nec vox hominem sonat; o, dea certe
(an Phoebi soror? an nympharum sanguinis una?)
