immodicae mero 10 Rixae, sive puer furens
Impressit memorem dente labris notam.
Non, si me satis audias,
Speres perpetuum dulcia barbare
Laedentem oscula, quae Venus 15 Quinta parte sui nectaris imbuit.

Aequor? Non tibi sunt integra lintea,
Non di, quos iterum pressa voces malo. 10 Quamvis Pontica pinus,

Iactes et genus et nomen inutile,
Nil pictis timid
