Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): SPA
[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.

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.
