Literal English Translation Original Latin Line

Furius and Aurelius, companions of Catullus,
whether (s)he will penetrate into the Indians,
where the shore is pounded by the far resounding
eastern wave,
whether [(s)he will penetrate] into the Hyrcanians or the gentle Arabs,
whether to the Scythians or the arrow-bearing Parthians,
or the seas which the sevenfold
Nile colors,
whether (s)he will walk across the high Alps,
gazing upon the monuments of great Caesar,
the Gallic Rhine, and the terrifying
most remote Britons,
wherever the will of the heavenly ones brings him(/her),
those who are prepared to attempt all these things at once,
[also] announce to my girl a few
not good words.
May she live and may she be well with her 300 adulterers,
whom she holds at the same time in an embrace,
loving none truly, but repeatedly breaking
the loins of all;
and may she not look back, as before, at my love,
which, by her fault, dies like the flower at
the farthest meadow, after it was touched by the plow
passing.

Furi et Aureli comites Catulli,
sive in extremos penetrabit Indos,
litus ut longe resonante Eoa
tunditur unda,
sive in Hyrcanos Arabesve molles,
seu Sagas sagittiferosve Parthos,
sive quae septemgeminus colorat
aequora Nilus,
sive trans altas gradietur Alpes,
Caesaris visens monimenta magni,
Gallicum Rhenum horribilesque ulti-
mosque Britannos,
omnia haec, quaecumque feret voluntas
caelitum, temptare simul parati,
pauca nuntiate meae puellae
non bona dicta.
cum suis vivat valeatque moechis,
quos simul complexa tenet trecentos,
nullum amans vere, sed identidem omnium
ilia rumpens;
nec meum respectet, ut ante, amorem,
qui illius culpa cecidit uelut prati
ultimi flos, praetereunte postquam
tactus aratro est.
