Nam Sibyllam quidem Cumis ego ipse oculis meis
vidi in ampulle pendere, et cum illi pueri dicerent:
Σίβυλλα τί θέλεις; respondebat illa: άποθανεΐν θέλω

For with my own eyes I saw the Sibyl hanging
in a jar at Cumae, and when the boys said to her,
"Sibyl, what do you want?: she replied, "I want to die".
