Quod (Because) dei ei (to her) dona donaverunt, nomen (her name) erat Pandora. The form of the woman was created from earth by Vulcan. Clothes of silver were donated to her by Minerva.

Pandora ad terram mittebatur. Sed Pandora erat curiosa*. Pandora operculum (lid, acc. sing.) ollae removit. Multa mala (evils, nom. pl) erant in olla! Mala (evils) ad terram volaverunt. Eheu! (Alas!) Una anima in olla mansit--Spes (hope, nom. sing). Hodie spes remanet cum hominibus (human beings, abl. plural).
