Eusebius Riddle 37: De vitulo


Date: Mon 27 Dec 2021
Original text:

Post genetrix me quam peperit mea, saepe solesco
Inter ab uno fonte rivos bis vivere binos
Progredientes, et si vixero, rumpere colles
Incipiam; vivos, moriens, aut alligo multos.


After my mother gives birth to me, I often become accustomed 
To living among twice-two streams arising from one 
Source, and if I live, I will begin to break 
Hills; otherwise, dying, I bind many living things.
