Engraved with flowers and trophies of love is the poem (front): "Nymphs, drawn to the chase and to the shadows of these forests searching some secret places far from the ambush of the satyr." The second stanza (back) reads, "Nearby, jealous desire, frantic by a torment of love, has caused the death of a young lover who himself still sighs."
