16. Women (i)
Verse LXX >
No-one, she says, would she rather marry than me,
Not even Jupiter himself if he were to ask.
She says : but what a woman says to her lover
Is written in air and fast running water.
Nulli se dicit mulier mea nubere malle
quam mihi, non si se Iuppiter ipse petat.
dicit: sed mulier cupido quod dicit amanti,
in vento et rapida scribere oportet aqua.
