Furi, villula nostra non ad Austri
Flatus oppositast neque ad Favoni
Nec saevi Boreae aut Apeliotae,
Verum ad milia quindecim et ducentos.
O ventum horribilem atque pestilentem! 5
Furius! our Villa never Austral force
Broke, neither set thereon Favonius’ course,
Nor savage Boreas, nor Epeliot’s strain,
But fifteen thousand crowns and hundreds twain
Wreckt it — Oh ruinous by-wind, breezy bane! 5
Furius, our villa not ‘gainst the southern breeze is pitted nor the western wind nor cruel Boreas nor sunny east, but sesterces fifteen thousand two hundred oppose it. O horrible and baleful draught.
