You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Ameana puella defututa

Language: Latin

[Ameana]1 puella defututa
Tota milia me decem poposcit,
Ista turpiculo puella naso,
Decoctoris amica Formiani.
Propinqui, quibus est puella curae,
Amicos medicosque conuocate:
Non est sana puella, nec rogare
Qualis sit [solet aes imaginosum]2.

Translation(s): ITA SPA

Chieder sesterzj diecimila osa

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the Latin

Chieder sesterzj diecimila osa
     A me una stupida sfondata tutta,

Codesta laida nasona uggiosa,
     Di quel di Formio frusto la putta?

Su, agnati prossimi, poichè a voi spetta
     Di questa misera la cura, in fretta

Gli amici e i medici tutti adunate; 
     Ma che male abbia non ricercate: 

È fuor dei gangheri la poveretta.
