Violet in classical texts

Like a giant ball of molten copper, the sun sank into the western waters. A bevy of purple, gold-fringed clouds guided the departing star of the day; but they hesitated when this touched the sea that met dark purple, endlessly spread.

Theodor Berthold, Funny High School Stories, 1900

Far away over the matt, lackluster rock walls, the Alps, a dark row of peaks, stare from violet purple Lightly entwined with haze.

Felix Dörmann: Laughter, 1895
