A fragment, written on losing faith in Lesbia, and resembling in tone Catul. 75.3f. Scaliger sought vainly to complete it by affixing Catul. 75.1ff. (q.u.).

[1-2] 1-2. cf. Catul. 8.5; Catul. 37.12amata tantum quantum amabitur nulla” .

[4] tuo: cf. Catul. 64.253n. tuo amore.

[4] ex parte mea: not as contrasted with Lesbia in her faithlessness,—the phrase in amore tuo precludes that,—but as contrasted with the mere wanton passion of Lesbia's new lovers.
