The word "now" is an anagram of "won" and "dread" is an anagram of "adder" (or vice versa in each example). Other interesting anagrams came from William Shakespear: "We all make his praise" and "I ask me has Will a peer?" Samuel Butler had a novel titled, Erewhon, which is an anagram of "Nowhere".

Another famous anagram comes from Pilate's question as seen in the Bible; John 18:38, Quid est veritus? (What is truth?) Vir est qui adest. (It is the man before you.) Pilate is not credited with having arranged this anagram.

The Bible passage merely says, "Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault [crime] at all." The point is, there is no reason to believe that Pilate compiled the anagram!
