Literal English Translation Original Latin Line

Cleverest of all thieves at the baths,
father Vibennius and you his profligate son,
for the father has a dirtier right-hand,
but the son has a more voracious anus:
off with you into banishment and the dismal regions,
since the father's plunderings are known
to all the world, and, my son, you cannot sell
your hairy bottom for an As.

O furum optime balneariorum
Vibenni pater, et cinaede fili,
(Nam dextra pater inquinatiore,
Culo filius est uoraciore)
Cur non exilium malasque in oras
Itis, quandoquidem patris rapinae
Notae sunt populo, et natis pilosas,
Fili, non potes asse uenditare?
