Description The text is written by me in an attempt to mimic the Old Roman Cursive, and reads:

Hoc gracili currenteque

vix hodie patefactas

Romani tabulas ornarunt calamo.

This is a Latin elegiac couplet composed by myself, which might be translated as: "With this slender and running pen the Romans decorated writing tablets, which today scarcely have been brought to light." The chief merit of this verse is that all letters of the Latin alphabet are used (except K, Y and Z).
