Κονδίτου μοι δεῖ. τὸ δὲ κονδῖτον πόθεν ἔσχεν
τοὔνομα; τῆς φωνῆς ἐστι γὰρ ἀλλότριον
τῆς τῶν Ἑλλήνων εἰ Ῥωμαϊκῶς δὲ καλεῖται,
αὐτὸς ἂν εἰδείης, Ῥωμαϊκώτατος ὤν.

σκεύασον οὖν μοι τοῦτο: τὸ γὰρ κατέχον με νόσημα
τοῦ στομάχου χρῄζει τοῦδε, λέγουσι, ποτοῦ.

— Paton edition

I require "conditum."¹ Where did " conditum "
get its name from ? for it is alien to the Greek
tongue. If it is a Latin word you will know, who
are such a good Latin scholar. Prepare it for me,
then, for the malady of the stomach from which I
suffer requires this drink, I am told.
