This inscription for the month of May was on a marble cube, on the four sides whereof were indications of the works and festivals for each month. Notice the brief, pithy injunctions, — very suitable for a community of hard-headed, totally unimaginative rustics.
The month of May
The corn is weeded.
The sheep are shorn.
The wool is washed.
The young steers are put under the yoke.
The vetch in the meadows is cut.
The lustration of the crops is made. Sacrifices (ought to be made) to Mercury and to Flora.
