QVO tua, Romanae uindex clarissime linguae,
  silua loco melius surgere iussa uiret
atque Academiae celebratam nomine uillam
  nunc reparat cultu sub potiore Vetus,

  hoc dedit, hac fontes cum patefecit ope,
ut, quoniam totum legitur sine fine per orbem,
  sint plures oculis quae medeantur aquae.        10
