A Hermit

Ovid, Metamorphoses 11.764-766 (on Aesacus, son of Priam; tr. Frank Justus Miller):
He hated towns and, far from glittering palace halls, dwelt on remote mountain-sides and in lowly country places, and rarely sought the company of the men of Ilium.

oderat hic urbes nitidaque remotus ab aula
secretos montes et inambitiosa colebat
rura nec Iliacos coetus nisi rarus adibat.
