[23] Our evening began afresh, and Quartilla called us back again to our cups. The girl with the cymbals gave her fresh spirits for the revel. . . .

Intrat cinaedus, homo omnium insulsissimus et plane illa domo dignus, qui ut infractis manibus congemuit, eiusmodi carmina effudit:

"Huc huc cito1 convenite nunc, spatalocinaedi,
Pede tendite, cursum addite, convolate planta
Femoreque2 facili, dune agili et manu procaces,
Molles, veteres, Deliaci manu recisi."
Consumptis versibus suis immundissimo me basio conspuit. Mox et super lectum venit atque omni vi detexit recusantem. Super inguina mea diu multumque frustra moluit.
