an Candidus

Praedia solus habes et solus, Candide, nummos,
   Aurea solus habes, murrina solus habes,
Massica solus habes et Opimi Caecuba solus,
   Et cor solus habes, solus et ingenium.
Omnia solus habes - hoc me puta velle negare! -
   Uxorem sed habes, Candide, cum populo.
aurea: ergänze vasa
Murrina [vasa] = Gefässe aus Murra
Massicum, Caecubum: edle Weinsorten
Opimi=aus dem Konsulatsjahr des Opimius = uralt

Possession

Only you have land, then, Candidus,
Gold plate, cash, and porcelain, only you,
Massic
or Caecuban wine of famous vintage,
only
you judgement and wit, only you.
You have it all  well say I dont deny it 
But everyone has your wife, along with you.
