74

That one who reclines lowest on the middle couch,
Having his three-haired bald head divided into paths with ointment,
And digs his open jaws with cropped mastic wood,
He cheats, Aefulanus: he does not have teeth.

LXXIV Meter: Choliamabic

Mĕ dĭ ō|rĕ cūm|bĭt ī|mŭs īl|lĕ quī|lēc tō,
Cāl vām|trĭ fī|lēm sē|mĭ tā|tŭs ūn|guēn tō,
Fŏ dīt|que tōn|sīs ō|ră lā|xă lēn|tīs cīs,
Mēn tī|tŭr, Ǣ|fŭ lā|nĕ: nōn|hă bēt|dēn tēs.
