«I quattro rotoli erano avvolti in una custodia rugginosa, impilati tra libri antichi. L’uomo che li vendeva aveva lineamenti del viso secchi, due occhi verdi a punta di spillo, in un viso di faina. “Tremila euro, non meno” mi disse, con aria ammiccante e con una voce uniqueness, inadatta al suo fisico minuto. Aperto l’involucro, vidi che si trattava di documenti scritti in latino, con mende che ne rendevano difficile los angeles lettura, in alcuni punti. [...] Riuscii a decifrare un nome che mi mise ansia: Ebuzio. Mi ricordava qualche cosa. Cercai di leggere qua e là alcune parti di uno dei documenti, mi sembravano interessanti, ma los angeles lettura completa avrebbe richiesto pace. [...] Li avrei quasi sicuramente comprati, ma prima chiesi di fare l. a. fotocopia di almeno uno dei quattro rotoli, in pegno avrei lasciato cinquecento euro. Acconsentì. Il giorno dopo andai all’appuntamento consistent with acquistare i rotoli: l’uomo period sparito. Non lo vidi più. Il rotolo da me fotocopiato contiene los angeles corrispondenza tra Ebuzio, cavaliere romano, e un suo nobile e colto amico, Varrone, nel 156 a.C. Ho deciso di tradurla».
