Symphosius Riddle 92: Mulier quae geminos pariebat


Date: Sat 10 Sep 2022
Original text:

Plus ego sustinui quam corpus debuit unum.
Tres animas habui, quas omnes intus habebam;
Discessere duae, sed tertia paene peregit.


I have sustained more than one body should.
I had three souls, all of which I had inside;
Two left, but the third one almost finished too.
