Latin Text and the Santa Maria in Cosmedin

Here’s some Latin text on the Santa Maria in Cosmedin, Rome, Italy. This church houses the famous “Mouth of Truth” as seen in the film Roman Holiday….While waiting to stick my hand in it’s mouth, I read some of the Latin inscriptions. In fact Rome and Italy were full of ancient Latin and ancient Greek inscriptions, and even some ancient Hebrew. I had a field day reading all three. Thank you Mrs. Sullivan, Dr. Mosley, and Dr. Warren…All those dead languages helped me be a better tourist!
