THE ACROSTIC ARGUMENT. [Supposed to have been written by Priscian the Grammarian.]

A FISHERMAN draws a wallet out of the sea in his net (Reti), in which (Ubi) are the trinkets of his master's daughter, who, having been stolen, had come into the possession of a Procurer as her owner (Dominum). She (Ea), having suffered shipwreck (Naufragio), without knowing it comes under the protection of her own father; she is recognized, and is married to her (Suo) lover Plesidippus.
