SET damnosa nimis panditur area.
  fac campum replices, Musa, papyrium.
nec iam fissipedis per calami uias
grassetur Gnidiae sulcus harundinis,
pingens aridulae subdita paginae        5
Cadmi filiolis atricoloribus.
aut cunctis pariter uersibus oblinat
furuam lacticolor sphongia sepiam.
parcamus uitio Dumnitonae domus,
ne sit charta mihi carior ostreis.        10
