7] Ingerebat nihilo minus Trimalchio lentissima voce: �Carpe, Carpe». Ego suspicatus advert aliquam urbanitatem totiens iteratam vocem pertinere, non erubui eum qui supra me accumbebat, hoc ipsum interrogare. [8] At ille, qui saepius eiusmodi ludos spectaverat, �Vides illum – inquit – qui obsonium carpit: Carpus vocatur. Ita quotiescumque dicit “Carpe”, eodem verbo et vocat et imperat». [ 37, 1] Non potui amplius quicquam gustare, sed conversus advert eum, ut quam plurima exciperem, longe accersere fabulas coepi sciscitarique, quae esset mulier illa, quae huc atque illuc discurreret. [2] �Uxor – inquit – Trimalchionis, Fortunata appellatur, quae nummos modio metitur. [3] Et modo, modo quid fuit? Ignoscet mihi genius tuus, noluisses de manu illius panem accipere. [4] Nunc, nec quid nec quare, in caelum abiit et Trimalchionis topanta est. [5] advert summam, mero meridie si dixerit illi tenebras esse, credet. [6] Ipse nescit quid habeat, adeo saplutus est; sed haec lupatria providet omnia, et ubi non putes. [7] Est sicca, sobria, bonorum consiliorum: tantum auri vides. Est tamen malae linguae, pica pulvinaris. [8] Quem amat, amat; quem non amat, non amat. Ipse Trimalchio fundos habet, quantum milvi volant, nummorum nummos. Argentum in ostiarii illius cella plus iacet, quam quisquam in fortunis habet. [9] Familia vero – babae babae! Non mehercules puto decumam partem esse quae dominum suum noverit. [10] advert summam, quemvis ex istis babaecalis in rutae folium coniciet. [ 38, 1] Nec est quod putes illum quicquam emere. Omnia domi nascuntur: lana, credrae, piper; lacte gallinaceum si quaesieris, invenies. [2] advert summam, parum illi bona lana nascebatur: arietes a Tarento63 emit et eos culavit in gregem. [3] Mei Atticum64 ut domi nascere tur, apes ab Athenis iussit afferri; obiter et vernaculae quae sunt, meliusculae a Graeculis fient. [4] Ecce intra hos dies scripsit, ut illi ex India semen boletorum65 mitteretur. Nam mulam quidem nullam habet, quae non ex onagro66 nata take a seat. [5] Vides tot culcitras: nulla non aut conchyliatum aut coccineum tomentum habet. [6] Tanta est animi beatitudo! Reliquos autem collibertos eius cave contemnas. [7] Valde sucossi sunt. Vides illum qui in imo imus recumbit: hodie sua octingenta possidet. De nihilo crevit. Modo solebat collo suo ligna portare. [8] Sed quomodo dicunt – ego nihil scio, sed audivi -, quom Incuboni67 pilleum rapuisset, et thesaurum invenit. [9] Ego nemini invideo, si quid deus dedit. Est tamen sub alapa et non vult sibi male.

Nec mehercules sua culpa; ipso enim homo melior non est; sed liberti scelerati, qui omnia advert se fecerunt.
