Transcription 

« ad Parthenium quoddam sacrum pervenitur, de la Fontaine dictum, ubi prius Dianę Templum fuit : quod propter murorum antiquitatem, in quibus nulla calcis commissura aut coagmentatio : propterque columnarum excavatarum positum & Idolorum tensas : foraminum item, per quę fumus sacrificiorum exiit : locorum quoque quibus victimę cędebantur, & sanguine parietes imbuebantur, spectatu dignum est. »
