AMPH. “Although I am angry and I rebuke my wife because of (her) faithlessness [non-chastity] ...

AMPH. “quamquam īrātus sum et uxōrem meam propter impudīcitiam castigō, ...

“... nonetheless I rejoice, if the voice was truly Jupiter’s and there was no trick.”

“ ... gaudeō tamen,sī uērō Iouis uōx fuit et dolus nōn fuit.”

30

BROM. “Certainly it was like the voice of the god.

BROM. “immō uōcis deī similis fuit.

BROMIA. “Do not be afraid, don’t trouble yourself.

BROMIA. “nōlī timēre, nōlī tē sollicitāre.

“When the snakes caught sight of the boys, they immediately rushed at them.

“ubi anguēs puerōs cōnspexērunt, in illōs statim irruērunt.

42

“But when that one boy caught sight of the snakes, he suddenly made an attack on them and killed both of them.

“sed ubi cōnspexit anguēs ille alter puer, impetum in anguēs subitō fēcit et ambōs necāuit.

43

“It is clear: the one boy, who killed those snakes, is Jupiter’s, the other is yours.”

“clārum est: alter puer, quī illōs anguēs necāuit, Iouis est, alter tuus.”

44

AMPH. “By Pollux, I will not trouble myself about this matter, if I will be able to divide my affairs with Jupiter.
