Tatwine Riddle 38: De carbone


Date: Wed 05 Jan 2022
Original text:

Exul sum generis factus motante figura.
Postquam me perdendo ferox invaserat hostis,
Expertem penitus vita formaque relinquens,
Officinae servum deinceps me iussit haberi.


I was made an exile from my kind by my changing form.
After a fierce enemy entered me, destroying me,
Leaving me completely without life and shape,
He then ordered me to be kept as a slave of the workshop.
