Let a basket of wings [1325] be brought speedily. Come, beat him as I do, and put some life into him; he is as lazy as an ass.

Aye, Manes is a great craven.

[1330] Begin by putting this heap of wings in order; divide them in three parts according to the birds from whom they came; the singing, the prophetic and the aquatic birds; then you must take care to distribute them to the men according to their character.

To Manes, who is bringing in another basket.
[1335] Oh! by the kestrels! I can keep my hands off you no longer; you are too slow and lazy altogether.
