Just read this article on Chiamus in ancient Greek and Latin literature

I seem to recall reading somewhere that chiasms fell out of general popularity in the 1st century having been very popular in the 1st century BCE and never really came back as a popular style thereafter. This seems to be confirmed by the sparse usage by writers like Seneca. Are there any other good articles that you know of on this subject?
