οὐ δύναμαι γαμετῆς καὶ γραμματικῆς ἀνέχεσθαι,
γραμματικῆς ἀπόρου, καὶ γαμετῆς ἀδίκου.
ἀμφοτέρων τὰ πάθη θάνατος καὶ μοῖρα τέτυκται.
τὴν οὖν γραμματικὴν νῦν μόλις ἐξέφυγον

οὐ δύναμαι δ᾽ ἀλόχου τῆς ἀνδρομάχης ἀναχωρεῖν
εἴργει γὰρ χάρτης καὶ νόμος Αὐσόνιος.

— Paton edition

I cannot put up with a wife and with Grammar
too. Grammar that is penniless and a wife who is
injurious. What I suffer from both is Death and
Fate. Now I have just with difficulty escaped from
Grammar, but I cannot escape from this shrewish
wife, for our contract and Roman law prevent it.
