Reading at Random in Classical Literature
In this two-liner on a follicularly-challenged lady, Martial, as ever, is short and to the point. And not a little offensive.
toto vertice quot gerit capillos
annos si tot habet Ligeia – trima est.
If the number of hairs she has on her whole head is equal to her age – Ligeia is three years old.
