Translation Original Latin Line

No woman is able to say that she is loved
truly, to such an extent as my Lesbia is loved by me.
There was no treaty with as much trust
as was found in that of my love for you.

Nūlla potest mulier tantum sē dīcere amātam
    Vērē, quantum ā mē Lesbia amāta mea est:
Nūlla fidēs ūllō fuit umquam in foedere tanta
    Quanta in amōre tuō ex parte reperta mea est.
