Symphosius, Riddles 63
The last riddle was fairly easy – it was a ball (pila). Here’s a second one to try.
ipsa gravis non sum, sed aquae mihi pondus inhaeret.
viscera tota tument patulis diffusa cavernis.
intus lympha latet, sed non se sponte profundit.
I’m not heavy myself, but the weight of water clings to me.
All my innards swell up, spread wide by my broad cavities.
Within me the liquid lies hidden, but does not pour forth of its own accord.
