Quod monear, non est, quia si furaberis ipse
   grandia mala, tibi bracchia macra dabo.

Not to be moved am I; shouldst thou, Thief, venture on thieving
These big apples, to thee pommes de bragues I will give.

I am inflexible; if thou shalt steal my large apples, I will give thee the apples of the breeches[2]

[1. By being sodomised. The text seems to infer that the god took pleasure in
punishing a thief.

2. Apples meaning testicles.]

Next: 75. Why, O ye pathic girls, with sidelong oglings observe me?
