Τὰς Ὀππιανοῦ τῆς κυνηγίας βίβλους
ἐκ τῆς σκοτεινῆς τοῦ μέτρου δυσφωνίας
εἰς πεζὸν εἶδος τοῦ λόγου μεθαρμόσας
προὔθηκά σοι, μέγιστε Καῖσαρ, ἐνθάδε
θηρατικῆς μάθημα πάγκαλον τέχνης.
Ἐντυγχάνων οὖν εὐκόπως τῷ βιβλίῳ
καὶ τὴν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ συλλέγων εὐκαρπίαν
πονῶν με πεῖθε μὴ κατοκνεῖν εἰς πόνους.

ex tenebrosa quae-ad-versus-pertinet vocum-asperitate

Perlegens ergo facile libellum,
et ex eo colligens fructuum-uberem-proventum,
laborans me persuade ne pigeat laborum.
