Semicinctium

Here is today's distich by Martial, 14.153:

Det tunicam locuples: ego te praecingere possum;
Essem si locuples, munus utrumque darem.


Here is the vocabulary:

semicinctium - apron, belt, sash
do - give
tunica - tunic
locuples - rich; rich man
ego - I, me
tu - you
praecingo - gird, clothe
possum - can, be able
sum - be, exist
si - if
munus - gift
uterque - both (of two)
