Risi nescio quem modo e corona,
qui, cum mirifice Vatiniana
meus crimina Calvus explicasset,
admirans ait haec manusque tollens:
"di magni, salaputium disertum!"
(in hendecasyllabic meter)
My prose translation:
I recently laughed at someone or other from the crowd
who, when my Calvus had wonderfully described the crimes of Vatinius,
admiring and lifting his hands said the following words:
"Great Gods, what an eloquent little squirt!"
