Simul límen intrabo, ílli extrabunt ílico. 
adeste, si híc absente nóbis uenierít puer.
Haut fácul, ut ait Pacúvius, femina úna inuenietúr bona.

At the same moment I was coming in one door,
They were going out another.
Pay attention, If this boy will come , while we are away.
Not easy, as Pacuvius says, to find even one good woman.

Lucius Afranius, Togatae.

Translated by Michel Morton
