Tatwine Riddle 23: De trina morte


Date: Wed 05 Jan 2022
Original text:

Saucio loetiferis omnes cum morsibus intus,
Nam rabidi trino capitis sub dente perimo.
Sed multi evadunt binorum vulnera dentum,
Tertius est nullus quem devitare licebit,
Sed binorum alter mordet quemcumque perimit.


I wound everyone inside with my deadly bites,
For I kill by way of the three teeth in my savage head.
Although many evade the wounds of two teeth,
There is a third which no one will be able to flee,
But one of the two destroys whomever it kills.
