Translation of Lucius Afranius "Auctio"written by
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.
