Ancillariolum tua...

Here is today's distich by Martial, 12.58:

Ancillariolum tua te vocat uxor, et ipsa
Lecticariola est: estis, Alauda, pares.


Here is the vocabulary:

ancillariolus - chaser after slave girls
tuus - your, yours
tu - you
voco - call
uxor - wife
et - and
ipse - emphatic adj/pronoun
lecticariolus - chaser after litter-bearers
sum - be, exist
Alauda - Alauda
par - equal
