 White: Chelasque sequentis: Augustus Occupying Libra's Place in Georgics I. 32-35
Roman poets, however, in the generation after Vergil were well aware of the designation of Libra as a constellation in its own right, although they continued to use the traditional name of the Claws alongside the new name of Libra.

That name, in addition to being suggested by the shape of the constellation, possibly arose from the fact that the sun occupies this sign during the autumnal equinox.
