Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp

Although the art of Little Nemo is outstanding, the story of Aladdin is probably more appealing, since it is based on the timeless hero-archetype. The comic version I'll be translating can be found here. The art by Antonio Giolitti is also very good. Thank you for your help in fixing my blunders!

Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp

Permira Aladdinis lucerna

Τὸ περιώνυμον λυχνάριον τοῦ Ἀλαντίν

In an ancient city lived a handsome youth named Aladdin. His father had died and his mother washed clothes for a living.

In antiqua urbe habitabat pulcher adolescens Aladdin nomine. Pater ejus mortuus erat, mater autem lintea lavans victum quæritabat.

Ἐν ἀρχαίᾳ πόλει τινὶ ᾤκει καλὸς νεανίσκος τις Ἀλαντίν ὀνόματι. Ὁ μὲν πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἐτεθνήκει, ἡ δὲ μήτηρ πλύνουσα τὸν βίον ἐποιεῖτο.

Aladdin was a good son, helping his mother all he could, but life was hard.

Aladdin quidem erat bonus filius, matri succurrens ut poterat, vita autem erat dura.

Ὁ μὲν Ἀλαντὶν ἦν ἀγαθὸς υἱός, τῇ μητρὶ βοηθῶν ὡς οἶός τ’ ἦν, ὁ δὲ βίος ἦν χαλεπός.

Ha, ha! There goes Aladdin, carrying his mother’s laundry!

Ha, ha! Ecce venit Aladdin, portans illota matris!

Ἅ, ἅ. Ἰδοὺ ἔρχεται ὁ Ἀλαντίν, βαστάζων τὰ ἄπλυτα τῆς μητρός.

As he walked through the marketplace, helping his mother to carry the laundry, he was often jeered at by unkind boys…

Dum enim ambulabat per forum et adjuvabat matrem ad illota portanda, sæpe irridebatur a pueris acerbis...

Βαδίζων γὰρ διὰ τῆς ἀγορᾶς καὶ βοηθῶν τῇ μητρὶ πρὸς τὸ τὰ ἄπλυτα βαστάζειν, πολλάκις ἐσκώπτετο ὑπὸ παιδῶν τραχῶν...

One day, a wicked magician saw in Aladdin just the lad he needed, and determined to get to know him.

Quadam die magus scelestus quidam, cum vidisset Αladdinem ipsum esse adulescentem quem requireret, constituit ut cognosceret eum.

Ἡμέρᾳ τινὶ μάγος πονηρός τις, ἰδὼν τὸν Ἀλαντίν αὐτὸν εἶναι τὸν νεανίσκον ὑφ' ἑαυτοῦ ἀναζητούμενον, προείλετο γιγνώσκειν αὐτόν.

Who is that boy?

Quis est ille puer?

Τίς ἐστιν ἐκεῖνος ὁ παῖς;

He’s Aladdin! His father was a tailor but he died!

Est Aladdin! Pater ejus erat vestiarius, mortuus autem est.

Ἔστιν ὁ Ἀλαντίν. Ὁ μὲν πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἦν ἱματιοπώλης, ἀπέθανε δέ.

By bribing some boys in the marketplace with gold coins, the magician learned all about Aladdin and where he lived.

Cum nummos aureos pueris quibusdam largitus esset, magus cognovit omnia de Aladdine habitationemque ejus.

Δωρησάμενος νυμίσματα χρυσῆ παισί τισιν, ὁ μάγος ἔγνω πάντα περὶ τοῦ Ἀλαντίν τε καὶ
τὴν οἴκησιν αὐτοῦ.

My dear boy! How glad I am to see you!

But, I don’t…

O carissime puer, quam delector videns te.

Sed ego non...

Ὦ φίλτατε παῖ, ὡς ἥδομαι ὁρῶν σε.

Ἀλλ' ἔγωγε οὐ...

A short time later, the magician came upon Aladdin at the well near his home and ran toward Aladdin, smiling broadly…

Paulo autem serius magus, cum supervenisset Aladdini ad puteum, qui prope domui ejus erat, ridens cucurrit adversum Aladdinem…

Ὀλίγῳ δ' ὄψιον ὁ μάγος, περιτυχὼν τῷ Ἀλαντὶν παρὰ τὸ φρέαρ τὸ ἐγγὺς τῇ οἰκίᾳ αὐτοῦ ὄν, γελῶν ἔδραμεν ἐπὶ τὸν Ἀλαντίν…

You are the picture of my long-lost brother! Tell me, nephew Aladdin, is he well?

My… my father is dead!


Tu quidem es effigies longe perditi fratris mei. Dic mihi, nepos Aladdin, recte valetne?

Pa ... pater mortuus est.

Σύγε εἶ ἡ εἰκὼν τοῦ μακρὸν ἀπεγνωσμένου ἀδελφοῦ μου. Εἰπέ μοι, ἀδελφιδῆ Ἀλαντίν, ἆρα καλῶς ἔχει;

Ὁ ... ὁ πατὴρ τέθνηκεν.

Pretending to be overcome with joy, the magician started to question him about his father. Aladdin was almost speechless.

Simulansque exsultare lætitia, magus interrogabat eum de patre ejus. Aladdin autem modo non stupebat.


Καὶ προσποιούμενος ἀγάλλεσθαι χαρᾷ, ὁ μάγος ἠρώτα αὐτὸν περὶ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ. Ὁ δὲ Ἀλαντὶν ὅσον οὐ κατεπλήσσετο.

Dead! Oh, alas! That I should have come too late to see him alive!

Mortuus! Vah! Quam vel juvat me tardius venisse ut viderem eum vivum!

Τέθνηκεν. Φεῦ καὶ τὸ ὑστερίσαι τοῦ ὁρᾶν αὐτὸν ζῶντα.

When Aladdin told him that his father was dead, the wicked old schemer buried his face in his hands, as though heartbroken.

Cumque Aladdin ei narrasset patrem suum mortuum esse, malus et vetus insidiator, quasi afflictus, obtexit vultum manibus.

Καὶ τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν αὐτῷ διηγησαμένου τὸν ἑαυτοῦ πατέρα τεθνηκέναι, ὁ πονηρὸς καὶ παλαιὸς ἐπιβουλευτής, ὡς ἀποθλιβόμενος, κατεκαλύψατο τὸ πρόσωπον ταῖς χερσίν.

But my mother will be glad to see you, sir!

No! No! I feel too sad to meet her now!



Sed mater mea libenter videbit te, o vir optime!

Nequaquam! Nimis enim tristor ut mox occurram ei.

Ἀλλ' ἡ μήτηρ μου ἡδέως ὄψεταί σε, ὦ κράτιστε.

Μηδαμῶς. Λίαν γὰρ λυποῦμαι ἢ αὐτίκα ἀπαντήσαι αὐτῇ.

And all his efforts to comfort his “uncle” were useless. The magician seemed to be overcome with grief…

Omnes quidem Aladdinis conatus ad consolandum patruum, ut videbatur, irriti fuerunt. Apparebat autem magum in luctu jacere...

Πᾶσαι μὲν αἱ τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν πεῖραι τοῦ παραμυθεῖσθαι τὸν πατράδελφον, ὡς ἐῴκει, ἄκυροι ἐγένοντο. Ἐφαίνετο δ' ὁ μάγος πένθει κατέχεσθαι...

I’ll come to supper tonight, Aladdin! But in the meantime, here is a little gift for you!

Oh, thank you...uncle!


Hοdie vesperi, o Aladdin, veniam ad cenam. Interea autem ecce, parvum donum tibi!

O, gratias ago tibi...patrue!

Σήμερον καθ' ἑσπέραν, ὦ Ἀλαντίν, εἶμι ἐπὶ δεῖπνον. Ἐν δὲ τῷ μεταξὺ ἰδού, μικρὸν δῶρόν τί σοι.

Ὦ, χάριν ἔχω σοι... θεῖε.

Promising to come to supper that night, the magician put some coins into Aladdin’s hand, and left.

Magus ergo, pollicitus se ad cenam vesperi venturum, nummis nonnullis in Aladdinis manum positis, abiit.

Ὁ οὖν μάγος, ὑποσχόμενος ἐπὶ δεῖπνον καθ' ἑσπέραν ἰέναι, νομίσματά τινα ἐπὶ τὴν τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν χεῖρα θείς, ἀπῆλθεν.

That evening, Aladdin’s mother served the “uncle” a delicious meal of roast duck bought with the money he had given them.

Illa autem vespera, mater Aladdinis apparavit patruo, ut videbatur, cenam suavissimam, nempe anatem assam emptam quo argento iste dederat.

Ἐκείνῃ δὲ τῇ ἑσπέρᾳ, ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν παρέθηκε τῷ θείῳ, ὡς ἐῴκει, δεῖπνον ἥδιστον, δηλαδὴ νῆσσαν ὀπτὴν ἠγορασμένην ὅσῳ ἀργυρίῳ οὗτος ἐδεδώκει.


All that evening, the magician praised Aladdin highly, and hinted at a great thing in store for him…

Magus autem, qui per totam vesperam Aladdinem magnifice laudabat, obscure significavit quiddam magni ab eo exspectari.

Ὁ δὲ μάγος, διὰ πάσης τῆς ἑσπέρας τὸν Ἀλαντὶν μεγάλως ἐπαινῶν, ᾐνίξατο αὐτὸν ἀναμένειν μέγα τι.

This cloak is a perfect fit, Aladdin!

It is indeed, uncle!


Hoc pallium apte convenit tibi, Aladdin!

Profecto, o patrue.

Τοῦτο θοἱμάτιον ἁρμόζει σοι , Ἀλαντίν.

Καὶ μάλα, ὦ θεῖε.

And as part of his plan the crafty schemer brought forth beautiful clothes for the youth.

Et ex consilio callidus insidiator attulit adolescenti pulchra vestimenta.

Καὶ ἐκ βουλῆς ὁ πανοῦργος ἐπιβουλευτὴς προσήνεγκε τῷ νεανίᾳ καλὰ ἐσθῆτα.

A handsome young man you are, nephew! Tomorrow, my dear sister-in-law, I will take Aladdin for a walk!

Pulcher juvenis es, nepos! Cras, o bona glos, ducam Aladdinem ambulatum.

Καλὸς νεανίας εἶ, ἀδελφιδοῦ. Ἐπαύριον, ὦ ἀγαθὴ γάλως, ἡγήσομαι τὸν Ἀλαντὶν εἰς περίπατον.

Aladdin’s mother was so proud of her handsome son that she did not question anything the “uncle” said.

Mater autem Aladdinis ita gloriabatur pro pulchro filio ut dubitaret nihil a patruo, ut videbatur, dictum.

Ἡ δὲ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν οὕτως ἐκαυχᾶτο ὑπὲρ τοῦ καλοῦ υἱοῦ ὥστε οὐκ ἠμφισβητεῖτο οὐδὲν ὑπὸ τοῦ θείου, ὡς ἐῴκει, εἰρημένον.

Tomorrow morning, early, I will return! Good night, dear nephew!

Cras mane redibo! Bene vale, o bone nepos!

Αὔριον πρωῒ ἐπάνειμι. Ὑγίαινε, ὦ ἀγαθὲ ἀδελφιδοῦ.


Finally the magician left, promising to return early the next day to take Aladdin to a wonderful surprise he had prepared for him…

Postremo magus, cum pollicitus esset se postridie mane rediturum ut ducat Aladdinem ad rem vere mirabilem pro illo a se paratam, abiit.

Tελευτῶν δ' ὁ μάγος, ὑπισχόμενος τῇ ὑστεραίᾳ πρωῒ ἐπανιέναι ἵνα ἡγήσηται τὸν Ἀλαντὶν πρὸς δὴ θαυμαστόν τι ὑπὲρ ἐκείνου ἐφ' ἑαυτοῦ παρεσκευασμένον, ἀπῆλθεν.

The next morning, the magician led Aladdin out into the mountains… The path was rough and wild.

Postridie igitur magus eduxit Aladdinem in montana. Via autem erat aspera et agrestis.

Τῇ οὖν ὕστεραίᾳ ὁ μάγος ἐξηγήσατο τὸν Ἀλαντὶν εἰς τὴν ὀρεινήν. Ἡ δ' ὁδὸς ἦν τραχεῖα καὶ ἀγρία.

Uncle, haven’t we… walked far enough?

Not yet, my boy!

Patrue, nonne satis longe ambulavimus?

Nondum, o puer!

Θεῖε, οὐχ ἱκανῶς μακρὰν βεβαδίκαμεν;

Οὔπω, ὦ παῖ.

It took them through a dark forest, where the trees seemed to assume many strange shapes.

Ferebatque eos per tenebricosam silvam, ubi arbores videbantur multum et mire mutari.

Καὶ ἔφερεν αὐτοὺς διὰ σκοτίας ὕλης, ὅπου τὰ δένδρα ἐδόκει πολὺ καὶ θαυμαστὸν μεταμορφοῦσθαι.

This is the place, nephew! A great treasure lies under our feet!

Under our feet? Wh-Where...?

Hic est locus, nepos! Nam magnus thesaurus jacet sub pedibus nostris.

Sub pedibus nostris? Ubi?

Ὅδε ἐστὶν ὁ τόπος, ἀδελφιδοῦ. Μέγας γὰρ θησαυρὸς κεῖται ὑπὸ τοῖς ποσὶν ἡμῶν.

Ὑπὸ τοῖς ποσὶν ἡμῶν; Ποῦ;

At last the magician told Aladdin that a wonderful treasure of gold, diamonds, rubies, and emeralds lay underground…

Denique magus dixit Aladdini mirum thesaurum auri et adamantum et carbunculorum et smaragdorum jacere sub terra.

Τέλος δ' ὁ μάγος εἶπε τῷ Ἀλαντὶν ὅτι θαυμάσιος θησαυρὸς χρυσοῦ καὶ ἀδαμάντων καὶ λυχνίτων καὶ σμαράγδων κέοιτο ὑπὸ γῆς.

Do as I tell you and you will see.

Following his “uncle’s” instructions, and using all his strength, he pulled up a large bush and a clod of earth with it…


Fac ut dico et videbis.

Ποίησον ὅπως λέγω καὶ ὄψῃ.

Persequens autem mandatum patrui, ut videbatur, omnibus viribus exstirpavit magnum dumum una cum glæba...

Καταδιώκων δὲ τὴν ἐντολὴν τοῦ θείου, ὡς ἐῴκει, κατὰ κράτος ἐξερίζωσε θάμνον μέγαν αὐτῇ τῇ βώλῳ...

A stairway!

Of course! Now listen to me!

...leaving a hole big enough to walk into! And at the bottom of the hole were steps leading into what seemed a bottomless pit.


Scalæ!

Prorsus. Ausculta autem me.

...tanto foramine relicto ut potuerit ingredi. In inferiori autem foramine erant gradus qui ferebant, ut videbatur, in immensam profunditatem.

Κλῖμαξ.

Πάνυ γε. Ἄκουσον δέ μου.

...λίπων τοσοῦτον τρῆμα ὥστε ἐξῆν εἰσκαταβαίνειν. Ἐν δὲ τῷ κάτω τοῦ τρήματος ἦσαν κλιμακτῆρες φέροντες, ὡς ἐδόκει, εἰς τὴν ἄβυσσον.

Before Aladdin could get over his surprise, his “uncle” told him to go down into the cave below the steps, and bring up a lamp that he would find there.

Antequam Aladdin admirationem excuteret, iste qui patruus putabatur jussit illum descendere in speluncam infra gradus et referre lucernam quam illic repperisset.

Πρὶν τὸν Ἀλαντὶν τὸ θαῦμα ἀποδύσασθαι, οὗτος ὁ νομιζόμενος θεῖος ἐκέλευσεν ἐκεῖνον καταβῆναι εἰς τὸ ὑπὸ τῶν κλιμακτήρων σπήλαιον καὶ ἀνακομίσαι λυχνάριόν τι ὃ ἂν ἐκεῖ εὕρῃ.

Hurry! There’s not much time!

Yes, uncle!

But Aladdin was warned not to let his clothes touch the walls of the cave or he would die.


Propera. Non est nobis tempus.

Etiam, patrue.

Aladdin autem monitus est ne sineret vestimenta tangere muros ne ipse moreretur.

Σπεῦδε. Οὐκ ἔστιν ἡμῖν σχολή.

Ναί, θεῖε.

Ὁ δ' Ἀλαντὶν ἐνουθετήθη ὡς μὴ ἐῴη τὰ ἱμάτια ἅψασθαι τῶν τείχων ἵνα μὴ αὐτὸς ἀποθάνοι.

The stone stairway went down and down! It grew darker and darker as Aladdin descended!

Ohhh!

Then at the foot of the stairs, he saw a strange light --- and followed it through a doorway.


Scalæ quidem lapideæ magis magisque deorsum ferebant. Aladdine autem descendente, magis magisque obscurabatur.

O!

Deinde ad infimas scalas videns miram lucem, secutus est eam per januam.

Ἡ μὲν λιθίνη κλῖμαξ ἀεὶ μᾶλλον κατέφερεν. Τοῦ δὲ Ἀλαντὶν καταβαίνοντος, ἀεὶ μᾶλλον ἐπεσκοτεῖτο.

Ὦ.

Εἶτα πρὸς τῇ κατωτάτῃ κλίμακι ἰδὼν θαυμάσιον φῶς τι, ἠκολούθησεν αὐτῷ διὰ θύρας.

Beautiful

Aladdin found himself in a beautiful garden, where every flower was a ruby or an emerald and the fruits hanging on the trees were pearls or precious stones. He stood in astonishment at the wonder of it.


Quam pulchrum!

Et Aladdin pervenit ad pulchrum hortum, ubi omnis flos erat carbunculus vel smaragdus, fructus autem qui ex arboribus pendebant erant margaritæ vel lapides pretiosi. Et stabat re tam mira stupefactus.

Ὡς καλόν.

Καὶ ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ἀφίκετο εἰς καλὸν κῆπον, ὅπου πᾶν μὲν ἄνθος ἦν λυχνίτης ἢ σμάραγδος, οἱ δὲ καρποὶ οἱ ἐκ τῶν δένδρων κρεμάμενοι ἦσαν μαργαρῖται ἢ λίθοι πολυτελεῖς. Καὶ εἱστήκει ἐκπλησσόμενος τοιούτῳ τῷ θαύματι.

I never saw anything so pretty

He could not help picking a few roses carved from a single ruby and daisies with diamond petals.


Numquam tam lepida vidi.

Neque facere potuit quin carperet paucas rosas ex uno carbunculo cælatas ac bellides foliis adamantinis præditas.

Οὔποτε οὕτω χαρίεντα ἑώρακα.

Οὐδ’ οἷός τε ἐγένετο μὴ δρέψασθαι ὀλίγα ῥόδα ἐξ ἑνὸς λυχνίτου γεγλυμμένα τε καὶ
ἀνθεμίδας πέταλα ἀδαμάντινα ἐχούσας.

I’ll take some of these, too!

He picked a little fruit from every tree and stuffed his pockets! All the fruit were gem stones worth a fortune. But Aladdin did not know this.


Et istorum aliqua sumam.

Et cum carpsisset pomusculum ex singula arbore adimplevit marsupia. Omnes vero fructus erant lapides pretiosi. Aladdin autem nesciebat.

Καὶ τούτων τινὰ λήψομαι.

Καὶ δρέψαμενος καρπίον ἐξ ἑκάστου δένδρου ἐπεπλήρωσε τοὺς μαρσίπους. Πάντες μὲν οἱ καρποὶ ἦσαν λίθοι πολυτελεῖς. Ὁ δὲ Ἀλαντὶν ἠγνόει.

Aladdin! Bring the lamp!

He was so excited that he almost forgot why he had come. Suddenly, the magician’s voce reminded him.


Aladdin, adfer lucernam!

Ita quidem commotus erat ut modo non oblivisceretur qua de causa venisset. Subito autem vox magi monuit eum.

Ἀλαντίν, προσένεγκε τὸ λυχνάριον.

Οὕτω μὲν κεκινημένος ἦν ὥστε ὅσον οὐκ ἐπελάθετο ἕνεκά τινος ἦλθεν. Ἐξαίφνης δὲ ἡ φωνὴ τοῦ μάγου παρῄνεσεν αὐτόν.

It isn’t even pretty!

And the end of the garden path stood the lamp on a table, but Aladdin could not see what his “uncle” could want with such a plain little lamp.


Neque lepidum!

In ultimis hortus lucerna jacebat super mensa, Aladdin autem dubitabat quæ patruo, ut ipse putabat, ratio esset cum hujusmodi lucerna.

Οὐδὲ χαρίεν.

Παρὰ μὲν ἔσχατα τοῦ κήπου τὸ λυχνάριον ἔκειτο ἐπὶ τραπέζης, ὁ δὲ Ἀλαντὶν ἠπόρει τί τῷ θείῳ, ὡς αὐτὸς ἐνόμιζε, πρᾶγμα εἴη τοιούτου λυχναρίου.

Aladdin!

I’m coming, uncle!

But obeying his “uncle”, Aladdin picked up the lamp and started back to the long stairway…


Venio, patrue!

Obediens autem patruo, ut videbatur, Aladdin, sublata lucerna, profectus est rursus ad longas scalas...

Ἔρχομαι, θεῖε.

Πεισθεὶς δὲ τῷ θείῳ, ὡς ἐῴκει, ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ἄρας τὸ λυχνάριον ὡρμήθη αὖ πρὸς τὴν μακρὰν κλίμακα...

Near the door he saw a fine gold ring on a golden stand. Aladdin was strongly tempted to see if it would fit him!

Prope autem ostium vidit pulchrum et aureum anulum super suggestum jacentem. Et Aladdin vehementer tentatus est cognoscere si sibi apte conveniret.

Πλησίον δὲ τῆς θύρας εἶδε καλὸν καὶ χρυσοῦν δακτύλιον ἐπὶ χρυσῷ ὑποθέματι κείμενον. Καὶ ὁ Ἀλαντὶν σφόδρα ἐπειρήθη γιγνώσκειν εἰ ἑαυτῷ ἁρμόζοι.

It’s just made for me! Oh..

Aladdin! You lazy boy! Bring my lamp!

Putting down the lamp, he tried on the ring. Just then, the magician’s voice came down the stairway, very angry


Maxime me decebit! O..

O Aladdin, o piger! Adfer meam lucernam!

Ideo, deposita lucerna, expertus est anulum. Tunc autem vox magi perirati descendit per scalas.

Ὡς μάλιστα πρέψει μοι. Ὦ..

Ὦ Ἀλαντίν, ὦ ἀμελές. Προσένεγκε τὸ ἐμὸν λυχνάριον.

Διὸ καταθεὶς τὸ λυχνάριον ἐπειράθη τὸν δακτύλιον. Τότε δὲ ἡ φωνὴ τοῦ μάγου διοργιζομένου κατέβη διὰ τῆς κλίμακος.

Blow out the lamp and hand it to me!

Wait! I can’t

Aladdin hurried to his “uncle’s” bidding, then stopped again as the precious stones began spilling out of his pockets…


Exstinguens lucernam porrige mihi.

Mane. Non possum...

Aladdin igitur festinavit ad præceptum patrui, ut putabatur, deinde autem, ut lapides pretiosi e marsupiis ejus effundebantur, iterum cessavit.

Κατασβέσας τὸ λυχνάριον παράσχε μοι.

Μεῖνον. Οὐχ οἷός εἰμι...

Ὁ μὲν οὖν Ἀλαντὶν ἔσπευσεν εἰς τὸ τοῦ νομιζομένου θεῖου πρόσταγμα, ἔπειτα δέ, ὡς οἱ πολυτελεῖς λίθοι ἐκ τῶν μαρσίπων αὐτοῦ ἐξεχέοντο, πάλιν ἐπαύσατο.

You stupid boy! Hand that lamp to me at once! Now! Now!

The magician grew furious! He wanted Aladdin to hand him the lamp so he could carry out his plan to seal the youth in the cave.


O stulte puer! Statim porrige mihi istam lucernam! Jam! Jam!

Magus autem factus est furibundus. Volebat enim lucernam ab Aladdine sibi porrigi ut exsequeretur consilium operiendi juvenem in spelunca.

Ὦ ἀνόητε παῖ. Αὐτίκα παράσχε μοι τοῦτο τὸ λυχνάριον. Ἤδη. Ἤδη.

Ὁ δὲ μάγος παρεκεκινήκει. Ἐβούλετο γὰρ τὸν Ἀλαντὶν παρασχεῖν αὐτῷ τὸ λυχνάριον ἵνα ἐπιτελέσαι τὴν βουλὴν τοῦ τὸν νεανίσκον ἐν τῷ σπηλαίῳ καλύψαι.

Patience uncle, I’ll come as soon as I can!

But his anger only made Aladdin stubborn. They youth began picking up the gems and told his “uncle” he would have to wait.


Quietus esto, patrue! Quam primum veniam!

Ira quidem patrui solum obdurabat Aladdinem. Qui autem incipiens tollere lapides ait
patruo, ut putabatur, opus esse eum exspectare.

Ἔχ' ἥσυχος, θεῖε. Ὡς τάχιστα εἶμι.

Ἡ μὲν ὀργὴ αὐτοῦ μόνον ἐσκλήρυνε τὸν Ἀλαντίν. Ὁ δὲ ἀρξάμενος αἴρειν τοὺς λίθους εἶπε τῷ νομιζομένῳ θείῳ ὅτι δέοι αὐτὸν ἀναμένειν.

Aladdin’s words so angered the wicked magician that he lost his temper completely. Pulling a magic wand from his robe, he spoke some strange words and the earth closed!

Verba Aladdinis ita irritaverunt magum scelestum ut is omnino perturbatus sit. Qui, magica virga e vestimento extracta, locutus est verba mira quædam, terra autem se clausit!

Ὁ δὲ λόγος τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν οὕτως ὤργισε τὸν πονηρὸν μάγον ὥστε τοῦτον πάντως ταραχθῆναι. Ὁ μὲν ἐκσπάσας ῥάβδον μαγικὴν ἐκ τοῦ ἱματίου, ἐλάλησεν ἔπη θαυμάσιά τινα, ἡ δὲ γῆ ἐκλείσθη.

Uncle! I’m shut in! Help!

At first, Aladdin did not quite know what had happened. Then he became terribly frightened.


O patrue, inclusus sum! Succurre!

Primum Aladdin haud plane sciebat quid accidisset. Deinde autem territus est.

Ὦ θεῖε, κατακέκλῃμαι. Βοήθησον.

Πρῶτον μὲν ὁ Ἀλαντὶν οὐ σαφῶς ᾔδει ὅ τι γέγονεν. Ἐπεῖτα δ' ἐξεπλάγη.

I’ll never see my home again!

Thinking of his mother, and the little house where they lived, Aladdin became very sad. A tear dropped onto his lamp.


Νumquam rursus videbo domum meam!

Cogitans de matre ædiculisque ubi habitabant, Aladdin contristatus est valde. Lacrima autem stillavit super lucernam ejus.

Οὔποτε αὖθις ὄψομαι τὴν οἰκίαν μου.

Ἐννοῶν τὴν μητέρα τε καὶ τὸ οἰκίδιον ὅπου ᾤκουν, ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ἐλυπήθη σφόδρα. Δάκρυον δ' ἐστάλαξεν ἐπὶ τὸ λυχνάριον αὐτοῦ.


All because of this old lamp! I wish I’d never seen it.

Because he had nothing else to do, Aladdin rubbed the tear spot off the lamp.


Culpanda ista vetusta lucerna! Utinam numquam vidissem eam!

Quoniam nihil aliud ei faciendum erat, Aladdin attrivit lacrimæ maculam a lucerna.

Αἴτιον τοῦτο τὸ παλαιὸν λυχνάριον. Εἴθε μήποτε εἶδον αὐτό.

Ἐπεὶ οὐδὲν ἄλλο αὐτῷ πρακτέον ἦν, ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ἀπέτριψε τὸ τοῦ δακρύου στίγμα ἀπὸ τοῦ λυχναρίου.

Hello! What do you want, Aladdin?

Who... Who are you?

And suddenly a genie appeared! Aladdin could hardly believe his eyes! At first he thought he was dreaming!


Ave! Quid vis, Aladdin?

Quis... Quis es tu?

Et subito genius apparuit! Aladdin autem ante oculos habens vix sibi persuadebat! Primo enim putabat se somniare!

Χαῖρε. Τί βούλει, Ἀλαντίν;

Τίς... Τίς εἶ σύ;

Καὶ ἐξαίφνης δαίμων τις ὤφθη. Ὁ δὲ Ἀλαντὶν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς ἔχων μόλις ἐπείθετο. Πρῶτον γὰρ ἐνόμιζεν ὀνειρώσσωειν.

I am the servant of the lamp in your hand! I will do whatever you wish! G

You will?

But when the genie explained that Aladdin was now his master the youth decided to test him…


Ego sum servus lucernæ in manu tua. Quodcumque velis faciam.

Itane?

Cum autem genius explicasset Aladdinem nunc esse dominum suum, juvenis consilium cepit ut tentaret eum...

Ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ δοῦλος τοῦ λυνχναρίου ἐν τῇ χειρί σου. Ὅτι ἂν βούλῃ ποιήσω.

Ἄληθες;

Ἐπειδὴ δὲ ὁ δαίμων ἐξηγήσατο τὸν Ἀλαντὶν νῦν εἶναι τὸν ἑαυτοῦ δεσπότην, ὁ νεανίσκος ἐβουλεύσατο πειρᾶσθαι αὐτοῦ...

All right. Get me out of here!

..with the first that came to his mind! He didn’t think anything would happen, but if he could get out...


Bene. Extrahe me hinc!

..in quo primum sibi in mentem veniret! Equidem arbitrabatur nihil accisurum esse, si autem potuisset exire...

Καλῶς. Ἔκσπασόν με ἐντεῦθεν.

..ἐφ' ᾧ τὸ πρῶτον ἑαυτῷ ἐπὶ νοῦν ἦλθεν. Καὶ μὴν οὐχ ἡγεῖτο οὐδὲν συμβήσεσθαι, εἰ δὲ οἷός τε ἐγένετο ἐξιέναι...

BOOM

FRAGOR

ΒΡΟΜΟΣ

All at once, there was thunderclap, and Aladdin found himself standing right where the hole in the ground had been … in broad daylight!

Subito autem tonitrus factus est et Aladdin stabat ubi quidem foramen terræ fuerat, sole profecto lucente.

Ἐξαίφνης δὲ βροντὴ ἐγένετο καὶ ὁ Ἀλαντὶν εἱστήκει ὅπου γε τὸ τρῆμα τῆς γῆς ἐγεγόνει, ἡλίου δὴ φαίνοντος.

There’s the bush I pulled up!

It was not a dream, after all! Everything was the same, except that there was no hole --- and no magician!

Ecce dumus quem exstirpavi!

Tamen non erat somnium! Omnia enim eadem erant, præterquam quod neque foramen aderat neque magus!

Ἰδού, ὁ θάμνος ὃν ἐξερίζωσα.

Ὅμως δ' οὐκ ἦν ὄναρ τι. Πάντα γὰρ τὰ αὐτὰ ἦν, πλὴν ὅτι οὔτε τὸ τρῆμα παρῆν οὔτε ὁ μάγος.


If I find that uncle of mine, I’ll tell him something!

Aladdin stuffed the little lamp inside his shirt, and started back to town.. He grew angry at the thought of the way he had been buried alive.


Si invenero hujusmodi patruum meum, pauca dicam ei!

Aladdin ergo, subacta intra indusium lucerna, profectus est rursus ad urbem. Et iratus est cogitans quomodo vivens sepelitus esset.

Ἐὰν εὕρω τοιοῦτον τὸν θεῖόν μου, συντόμως ἐρῶ αὐτῷ.

Ὁ οὖν Ἀλαντὶν σάξας τὸ λυχνάριον ἔσω τοῦ χιτωνίσκου ὡρμήθη πάλιν πρὸς τὴν πόλιν. Καὶ ὠργίσθη ἐννοῶν ὅπως ζῶν κατωρύχθη.

Oh, my son! I hope you did not steal them!

No, I found them, mother!

When he reached home, his mother nearly fainted at the sight of the beautiful stones he had found. She did not believe his story of the underground garden.


O fili, spero te eos non furasse!

Immo inveni, mater!

Cum domum pervenisset, mater ejus modo non collapsa est spectans pulchros lapides ab eo inventos. Non tamen credidit ei de subterraneo horto narranti.

Ὦ τέκνον, ἐλπίζω σε μὴ κλέψαι αὐτούς.

Ἀλλὰ δὴ εὗρον, μῆτερ.

Ἐπειδὴ οἴκαδε ἀφίκετο, ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ μόνον οὐ συνέπεσε θεησαμένη τοὺς καλοὺς λίθους ὑπ' αὐτοῦ εὑρημένους. Οὐ μὴν ἐπίστευσεν αὐτῷ περὶ τοῦ καταγείου κήπου διηγουμένῳ.


She tied them up in a cloth and hid them behind a loose brick in the chimney place.

Et cum vinxisset eos lino quodam abscondit post laterem solutum in foco.

Καὶ συνδήσασα αὐτοὺς λίνῳ τινὶ ἔκρυψεν ὄπισθε πλίνθου λελυμένης ἐν τῇ ἑστίᾳ.

Mother, I’m still hungry!

My son, there is no more food in the house!

Three days later, Aladdin’s mother started to polish the little old brass lamp. As she rubbed it...


Mater, adhuc esurio!

Fili, non amplius adest cibus in domo.

Post autem dies tres, mater Aladdinis poliebat veterem lucernam æneam. Dum vero atterebat eam...

Μῆτερ, ἤδη πεινῶ.

Τέκνον, οὐκέτι πάρεστι σῖτος ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ.

Mετὰ δ' ἡμέρας τρεῖς, ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν ἔξει τὸ παλαιὸν χαλκοῦν λυχνάριον. Αὐτῆς δὴ τοῦτο ἀποτριβούσης...

Good morning! What shall I do for you!

...suddenly the smiling genie appeared to her! She gave a squeak of fright, but could not answer him!


Salvete! Quid pro vestro desiderio faciam?

...subito genius subridens apparuit ei. Quæ verp territa striduit, sed non poterat respondere.

Χαίρετε. Τί ὑμῶν χάριν πράξω;

..ἐξαίφνης ὁ δαίμων ὑπογελῶν ἐφάνη αὐτῇ. Ἡ δὴ φοβηθεῖσα ἔτριξεν, ἀλλ' οὐκ ἐδύνατο ἀποκρίνασθαι.

Bring us the very best dinner you can!

Aladdin was not frightened at all, this time. He gave the genie a quick command.


Affer nobis quam optimam cenam pro viribus tuis!

Tunc autem Aladdin nequaquam timebat. Citoque dedit genio mandatum.

Ἔνεγκε ἡμῖν ὅτι ἥδιστον δεῖπνον καθ’ ὅσον δύνασαι.

Τότε δ' ὁ Ἀλαντὶν οὐδαμῶς ἐφοβεῖτο. Καὶ ταχὺ ἔδωκε τῷ δαίμονι ἐντολήν.

There it is, mother!

BOOM!


There was a thunderclap and suddenly on the table lay a wonderful dinner for two on plates of solid gold.

Ecce, mater!

FRAGOR

Et, facto tonitru, subito super mensa jacebat mirabilis pro duobus cena in auro puro.

Ἰδού, μῆτερ.

ΒΡΟΜΟΣ

Καὶ, βροντῆς γενομένης, ἐξαίφνης ἐπὶ τῆς τραπέζης ἐκεῖτο θαυμάσιον ὑπὲρ δυοῖν δεῖπνον ἐπὶ πινάκων ὁλοχρύσων.

Come, mother! It smells good!

The poor lady was too astonished to say a word, at first.


Veni, mater! Suaviter olet!

Primo quidem misera mulier magis stupebat quam ut verbum faceret.

Ἐλθέ, μῆτερ. Γλυκὺ ὄζει.

Τὸ μὲν πρῶτον ἡ ταλαίπωρος γυνὴ μᾶλλον κατεπλήσσετο ἢ ὥστε γρῦ φθέγγεσθαι.

But, Aladdin! How.. who..?

Then her son explained that the powerful genie always appeared when anyone rubbed the lamp.


Sed o Aladdin, quomodo.. quis..?

Deinde autem filius ejus explicavit fortem genium semper apparere quoties quis atteruerit lucernam.

Ἀλλ' ὦ Ἀλαντίν, πῶς.. τίς..;

Ἔπειτα δ’ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτῆς ἐξηγήσατο τὸν ἰσχυρὸν δαίμονα ἀεὶ φαίνεσθαι ὅτε τις ἀποτρίψαι τὸ λυχνάριον.

These plates are pure gold, Aladdin!

Ummmmhmm!

Aladdin’s mother decided she could sell one of the gold plates for enough money to last them all summer.


Mumu mumu!

Istæ patinæ sunt auri puri, Aladdin!

Mater Aladdinis censuit se posse patinam auream unam tanti vendere ut sufficeret eis ad extremam æstatem.

Αὕται αἱ λεκάναι εἰσὶν ὁλόχρυσοι, Ἀλαντίν.

Mυμῦ μυμῦ.

Ἡ μὲν μήτηρ τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν ἔγνω ἔξον αὐτῇ λεκάνην χρυσῆν μίαν τοσούτου πωλῆσαι ὥστε ἐξαρκεῖν αὐτοῖς ἕως τῆς τελευτῆς τοῦ θέρους.

But Aladdin was more interested in going fishing.

Αladdini autem magis curæ erat piscatum ire.

Τῷ δὲ Ἀλαντὶν μᾶλλον ἔμελεν ἰχθῦς θηρᾶν.

Ha, ha! Dare you to wade across the brook!

The fish were biting well, when he heard laughing voices behind some tall bushes.


Ha, ha! Provoco vos ad transeundum rivum!

Dum pisces hamo capiebantur, audivit voces ridentium post dumos proceros quosdam.

Ἅ, ἅ. Προκαλοῦμαι ὑμᾶς διαβῆναι τὸν ῥύακα.

Τῶν δὲ ἰχθύων ἀγκιστρωμένων, ἤκουσε φωνὰς γελώντων μετὰ θάμνους εὐμήκεις τινάς.


Oh, oh!

He peeked through the bushes, and saw…


Oh, oh!

Et inspiciens per dumos vidit…

Ὦ, ὦ.

Καὶ παρακύψας διὰ τῶν θάμνων εἶδε…

What if someone should see us, princess? Tee-hee!

Who cares?

The king’s young daughter and her friends, wading in the stream for fun; the princess in the lead. Aladdin had never seen anyone as lovely as the princess!


Quid si quis videat nos, regina? Αtat!

Quisnam curat?

...regis adulescentem filiam amicasque ejus, per ludum in flumine transeuntes, regina ducente. Aladdin autem numquam viderat quamquam tam venustam quam reginam!

Τί δὴ εἴ τις ὁρῴη ἡμᾶς, βασίλισσα; Ἀτταταῖ.

Τίνι δὴ μέλει;

...τήν τε τοῦ βασιλέως νέαν θυγατέρα καὶ τὰς φίλας αὐτῆς, μετὰ παιδιᾶς ἐν τῷ ποταμῷ διαβαινούσας, τῆς δὲ βασιλίσσης ἡγουμένης. Ὁ δὲ Ἀλαντὶν οὐδέποτε ἑωράκει τινὰ οὕτως εὐπρεπῆ ὥσπερ τὴν βασίλισσαν.

Aladdin took good care not to be seen by the girls, but after they had gone away…

Aladdin vero sedule observavit ne puellæ viderent eum, cum autem eæ abivissent...

Ὁ μὲν Ἀλαντὶν πολὺ ἐπεμελήθη ὅπως μὴ αἰ κόραι ὄψονται αὐτόν, ἀπελθουσῶν δὲ αὐτῶν...

He didn’t want to fish any more! With his fishing pole dragging in the dust, he walked slowly home.

...non amplius voluit piscari! Arundinem autem in pulvere trahens, lente domum ambulavit.

...οὐκέτι ἐβουλήθη ἱχθυᾶν. Τὸν δὲ κάλαμον ἐν τῇ κόνει ἕλκων, βάδην οἴκαδε ἐβάδισεν.

Ahhh! (Sigh!) I can’t stand it!

My son! What’s the matter with you?

For the next week, Aladdin mooned around the house, and nothing seemed to please him any more.


Heu, heu! Nequeo tolerare!

Fili, quid pateris?

Per sequentem hebdomadam Aladdin vagabatur circa domum quasi nulla re delectaretur.

Αἰαῖ. Οὐ δύναμαι καρτερεῖν.

Τέκνον, τί πάσχεις;

Διὰ τῆς ἐπιούσης ἑβδομάδος ὁ Ἀλαντίν ἐπλανᾶτο περὶ τὴν οἰκίαν ὡς ἡδόμενος μηδενί.

I won’t feel any better until I do!

Do what, Aladdin?

At last he stood up and smacked a fist against his palm. He had made up his mind to marry the king’s daughter!


Melius mihi non erit donec agam!

Quid, o Aladdin?

Jam vero surgens percussit palmam pugno. Statuerat enim se filiam regis uxorem ducere.

Οὐ ῥᾴων ἔσομαι ἕως ἂν πράξω.

Τί, ὦ Ἀλαντίν;

Ἤδη δὴ ἀναστὰς ἐπάταξε τὴν παλάμην τῇ πυγμῇ. Ἐψηφίστο γὰρ τῆν θυγατέρα τοῦ βασιλέως γῆμαι.

I’m going to marry the king’s daughter!

What? Have you lost your mind?

When Aladdin told his mother, she nearly fainted! To ask for the king’s daughter was like asking for the moon!


Ducam filiam regis uxorem!

Quid? Penes te es?

Cum Aladdin dixisset matri, ipsa prope collapsa est. Qui enim filiam regis sibi petebat similis erat cui astra.

Γαμῶ τὴν θυγατέρα τοῦ βασιλέως.

Τί δή; Ἆρα φρονεῖς;

Ἐπεὶ ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ἔφρασε τῇ μητρί, αὐτὴ σχεδὸν συνέπεσεν. Ὁ γὰρ τὴν θυγατέρα τοῦ βασιλέως αἰτούμενος ὅμοιος ἦν τῷ τὰ ἄστρα.

Take these jewels, mother.

But Aladdin had a plan. His mother was to take the precious stones from the secret garden and give them to the king.


Accipe gemmas has, mater.

Sed Aladdini consilium erat. Nempe mater, cum accepisset lapides ex horto secreto pretiosos, debebat dare regi.

Λαβὲ τούσδε τοὺς λίθους, μῆτερ.

Ἀλλὰ τῷ Ἀλαντὶν βουλή τις ἦν. Δηλαδὴ ἡ μήτηρ, λαβοῦσα τοὺς ἐκ τοῦ ἀποκρύφου κήπου πολυτελεῖς λίθους, ὤφειλε δοῦναι τῷ βασιλεῖ.

The next day Aladdin’s mother went to the king’s palace, trembling inside! She had argued half the night with Aladdin before she agreed to go.

Postridie autem mater Aladdinis, intus tremens, venit in aulam regis. Priusquam enim concederet, ad multam noctem cum Aladdine altercata erat.

Τῇ δὲ ὑστεραίᾳ ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἀλαντίν, ἔνδον τρέμουσα, ἦλθεν εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τοῦ βασιλέως. Πρὶν γὰρ ὁμολογῆσαι, πόρρω τῶν νυκτῶν τῷ Ἀλαντὶν διείλεκτο.

I wish I hadn’t come!

She stood with the fine people who had come to see the king, and wished she were back home.


Utinam non venissem!

Dum stabat cum elegantibus qui ad videndum regem venerant, cupiebat se denuo domi esse.

Εἶθε μὴ ἦλθον.

Καὶ ἑστῶσα μετὰ τῶν ἀστείων ἐληλυθότων ἰδεῖν τὸν βασιλέα, ἐπεθύμει αὖ οἴκοι εἶναι.

Well, my good woman, what is your business?

At last her turn came. In her hands she clutched a jewel box, bought with one of the smallest diamonds.


Ἄγε, ὦ γύναι, τὸ σὸν τί ἐστι πρᾶγμα;

Ἤδη δὴ ὁ λόγος καθῆκεν εἰς αὐτήν. Ἡ δὲ ταῖς χερσὶν κατέχει πλήρη λίθων θήκην ἠγορασμένην ἑνὸς τῶν ἐλαχίστων ἀδαμάντων.

Age, o mulier, tibi quid est negotii?

Jam vero sermo pervenit ad eam. Quæ autem manibus tenebat plenam gemmarum arculam emptam unius minimorum adamantum.

Please, your majesty, a gift.

Ah!

Kneeling before the throne she opened the box


Si tibi libet, domine, donum.

Ah!

Et cum in genua procubuisset ante solium, aperuit arculam.

Εἰ δοκεῖ σοι, κύριε, δῶρον.

Ἆ.

Καὶ εἰς γόνυ ὀκλάσασα πρὸ τοῦ θρόνου, ἀνέῳξε τὴν θήκην.

Emeralds, diamonds, and rubies! A princely gift!

The king loved precious stones better than anything, except his daughter. And he had never seen such beautiful ones.


Smaragdi, adamantes, carbunculi. Donum sane magnificum!

Rex autem præter filiam amabat quam maxime lapides pretiosos. Et numquam viderat hujusmodi lapides.

Σμάραγδοι, ἀδάμαντες, λυχνῖται. Δῶρον μὴν μεγαλοπρεπές.

Ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς πλὴν τοῦ θυγατρὸς ἐφίλει ὅτι μάλιστα τοὺς πολυτελεῖς λίθους. Καὶ οὔποτε ἑωράκει τοιούτους λίθους.

But you have not told me who send this gift?

My son, Aladdin!

Trembling so that she could hardly speak, Aladdin’s mother explained that her son wanted to marry the princess.


At non indicasti quis misisset donum hoc?

Filius meus, Aladdin!

Μater autem Aladdinis, tremens ut vix loqui posset, narravit filium velle reginam uxorem ducere.

Ἀλλ' οὐκ ἀπήγγελκας τὸν πέμψαντα τοῦτο τὸ δῶρον.

Τὸν υἱόν μου, Ἀλαντίν.

Ἡ δὲ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἀλαντίν, τρέμουσα ὥστε μόλις δύνασθαι λέγειν, διηγήσατο τὸν υἱὸν βούλεσθαι τὴν βασίλισσαν γῆμαι.

But...that’s impossible!

The king sputtered! He said he did not know Aladdin and besides, his daughter would marry nobody but the richest man in all the world.


At fieri non potest!

Rex vero sonum edens dixit sese quidem nescire Aladdinem, filiam autem nupturam esse nullo nisi omnium ditissimo viro.

Ἀλλ' ἀδύνατόν ἐστιν.

Ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς φθεγξάμενος εἶπεν ὅτι αὐτὸς μὲν οὐκ οῖδε τὸν Ἀλαντίν, ἡ δὲ θυγάτηρ οὐ γαμεῖται οὐδενὶ ἀλλ' ἢ τῷ τῶν ὄντων πλουσιωτάτῳ ἀνδρί.

Tell your son to prove he is worthy!

Yes, your majesty!

He said that if Aladdin really hoped to marry his daughter, he must send the king forty gold bowls heaped up with diamonds and emeralds and rubies!


Jube filium tuum dignum se præbere!

Hoc ago, rex!

Aitque, si Aladdin revera speraret se filiam ejus uxorem ducturum, ei crateras aureas quadraginta adamantibus smaragdis carbunculis plenissimas ad regem mittendas esse.

Κέλευσον τὸν υἱόν σου ἑαυτὸν ἄξιον παρέχειν.

Tαῦτ᾽ ὦ βασιλεῦ.

Καὶ ἔφη, εἰ ὁ Αλαντὶν ὄντως ἐλπίζοι τῆν θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ γαμεῖν, δεῖν αὐτὸν κρατῆρας χρυσοῦς τεσσεράκοντα ἀδαμάντων σμαράγδων λυχνιτῶν πληρεστάτους πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα πέμψαι.

Tee, hee, hee! She must be simple!

Aladdin’s mother hurried out of the throne room, followed by the laughter of all the court.


Αtat! Manifestum istam simplicem!

Mater autem Aladdinis fuga discessit ex aula, omnibus aulicis eam ridentibus.

Ἀτταταῖ. Φαίνεται αὔτη εὐήθης.

Ἡ δὲ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν δρόμῳ ἀπῆλθε τῆς αὐλῆς, πάντων τῶν αὐλικῶν ἐπ' αὐτῇ γελώντων.

Mother, what happened at the palace?

Aladdin, it is no use!

When she reached home, she told her son of the king’s impossible demand: forty bowls full of precious stones!


Mater, quid factum est in aula?

Aladdin, inutile est.

Cum domum pervenisset, filio narravit regem postulasse quod fieri non posset: nempe quadraginta crateras lapidibus pretiosis plenas.

Μῆτερ, τί ἐπράχθη ἐν τῇ αὐλῇ;

Ἀλαντίν, ἄχρηστόν ἐστιν.

Ἡ δὲ οἴκαδε ἀφικομένη, τῷ υἱῷ διηγήσατο ὅτι ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ ἀδύνατον αἰτήσαι· δελαδὴ τεσσεράκοντα κρατῆρας λίθων πολυτελῶν πληρεῖς.

Oh! Is that all he asked?

But Aladdin was not bothered at all! He grinned at his mother, and picked up the old brass lamp!


Ο! Nihilne aliud rogavit?

Sed Aladdin minime turbabatur. Qui ore distorto ante matrem ridens sustulit veterem lucernam æneam.

Ὦ. Οὐδενὸς ἄλλου γ' ἐδεήθη;

Ἀλλ' ὁ Ἀλαντὶν οὐδαμῶς ἠνωχλεῖτο. Ὁ δὲ πρὸ τῆς μητρὸς σεσηρὼς ἦρε τὸ παλαιὸν χαλκοῦν λυχνάριον.

I am here! What are your commands?

Forty golden bowls of jewels! And…

He rubbed it and when the genie appeared Aladdin gave him a long list of orders.


Adsum! Quid præcipis mihi?

Quadraginta crateras aureas lapidum pretiosorum! Atque...

Quam cum Aladdin attrivisset et genius apparuisset, dedit ei mandata plurima.

Πάρειμι. Τί ἐπιτάσσεις μοι;

Τεσσεράκοντα κρατῆρας χρυσοῦς λίθων πολυτελῶν. Καί...

Ὅπερ ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ἀποτρίψας, φανέντος τοῦ δαίμονος, ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ ἐντολὰς πλείστας.

Look! What is that procession?

A short time afterward, the king looked out of his palace window and gave a shout of surprise!


Vide! Quid est illa pompa?

Aliquanto post rex, cum per regiæ fenestram aspexisset, exclamavit mirans.

Ἴδε. Τί ἐκείνη ἡ πόμπη;

Ὀλίγῳ δὲ χρόνῳ ὕστερον ὁ βασιλεὺς, διὰ τῆς τῶν βασιλείων θυρίδος βλέψας, ἀνεβόησε θαυμάζων.

What he saw were forty handsome serving men carrying forty big golden bowls, heaped with glittering gems, and marching straight toward his palace.

Vidit enim quadraginta speciosos servos qui totidem magnas crateras aureas gemmis claris plenissimas portabant atque iter directum ad regiam ejus faciebant.

Εἶδε γὰρ τεσσεράκοντα ὡραίους δούλους βαστάζοντάς τε ἴσους μεγάλους κρατῆρας χρυσοῦς λαμπρῶν λίθων πληρεστάτους καὶ εὐθὺ πορευομένους πρὸς τὰ βασίλεια αὐτοῦ.


Har-rumph! From whom do you come?

From our master, Aladdin!


The king hurried to his throne room to receive the forty servants, and their gifts. Never had the king dreamed that there were so many beautiful stones in the world.

[Screans] A quo venistis?

Ab ero nostro Aladdine!

Ideo rex festinans ad aulam excepit quadraginta servos una cum donis. Neque vero per somnum rex cognovit tot pulchros lapides in terra esse.

[Χρεμπτόμενος] Παρὰ τίνος ἥκετε;

Παρὰ τοῦ δεσπότου ἡμῶν, τοῦ Ἀλαντίν.

Ὁ οὖν βασιλεὺς σπεύσας εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν ἐδέξατο τοὺς τεσσεράκοντα δούλους αὐτοῖς τοῖς δώροις. Οὐδὲ δὴ ὄναρ ὁ βασιλεύς ἔγνω τοσούτους καλοὺς λίθους ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ὄντας.

What word does the king send to my master?

Haw-rumph! I er, ahem!

The king hemmed and hawed. At last he said he would give his daughter to Aladdin in marriage, if the girl herself agreed! He named a day for Aladdin to call on her
.

Quid renuntiem a rege responsum ad meum erum?

[Screans] Ego, ehem!

Rex vero hæsitabat. Tandem ait se filiam Aladdini in matrimonium collocaturum esse, si ipsa consensisset. Diemque statuit ut Aladdin viseret eam.

Τίνα ἀπόκρισιν παρὰ τοῦ βασιλέως ἀπαγγελῶ τῷ δεσπότῃ μου;

[Χρεμπτόμενος ] Ἔγωγε, ὤ.

Ὁ δὴ βασιλεὺς ἠπόρει. Ὕστερον δ' ἔφη τὴν θυγατέρα τῷ Ἀλαντὶν ἐκδώσειν, ἐὰν αὐτὴ συμφωνήσῃ. Καὶ τὴν ἡμέραν ἔστησεν ὥστε τὸν Ἀλαντὶν ἐπίσκοπῆσαι αὐτήν.

The day after tomorrow? Fine! But first..

As soon as the chief servant returned with the king’s promise, Aladdin was delighted!


Perendie? Bene! Primum autem...

Cum princeps minister reversus retulisset promissionem regis, Aladdin lætatus est.

Τῇ μεταύριον; Καλῶς. Πρῶτον δὲ...

Ἐπειδὴ ὁ ἀρχιυπηρέτης ἐπανελθὼν ἀπήγγειλε τὴν τοὺς βασιλέως ὑπόσχεσιν, ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ἐχάρη.

I want you to build me a palace, instead of this old shack!

He again called the genie and gave the biggest order of all! He talked for fifteen minutes! The moment he stopped…


Volo te ædificare mihi regiam pro isto vetere tugurio!

Et revocans genium quam maxime jussit. Enimvero diu locutus est! Cum cessasset,

Βούλομαί σε οἰκοδομῆσαί μοι βασίλεια ἀντὶ ταύτης τῆς παλαιᾶς καλύβης.

Καὶ ἀνακαλεσάμενος τὸν δαίμονα ὡς μέγιστα ἐκέλευσεν. Καὶ γάρ τοι πολὺν χρόνον ἐλάλησεν. Ἐπειδὴ ἐπαύσατο,

BOOM!

a magnificent palace stood where the old shack had been. The pillars were of gold and silver, and the arched windows were outlined with glittering diamonds.


FRAGOR

magnifica regia stabat loco veteris tugurii. Columnæ enim erant aureæ et argenteæ, fornicatæ autem fenestræ claris adamantibus circumornatæ.

ΒΡΟΜΟΣ

μεγαλοπρεπῆ βασίλεια εἱστήκη ἀντὶ τῆς παλαιᾶς καλύβης. Αἱ μὲν γὰρ κίονες ἦσαν χρυσαῖ καὶ ἀργυραῖ, αἱ δὲ καμαρωτοὶ θυρίδες λαμπροῖς ἀδάμασι περικεκοσμημέναι.

When the day came that he was to call on the princess, Aladdin was dressed like a prince.

He mounted a splendid white horse, outside his new palace…


Cum dies visendi reginam venisset, Aladdin vestitus erat cultu regio. Deinde, equo albo magnifico extra novam ejus regiam conscenso...

Ἐπεὶ ἡ ἡμέρα ἦλθε τοῦ ἐπίσκοπῆσαι τὴν βασίλισσαν, ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ἐνδεδυμένος ἦν στολὴν βασιλικήν. Ἔπειτα δέ, ἐπιβὰς ἔξω τῶν νέων βασιλείων ἐπὶ ἵππον λευκὸν μεγαλοπρεπῆ,

ZIP!

...and rode through the city, as a red velvet carpet unrolled magically before him.


SIBILUS

...vectus est per urbem, dum ruber examitus tapes ante eum magica arte evolvebatur.

ΣΥΡΙΓΜΟΣ

...ἤλασε διὰ τῆς πόλεως, ἐρυθροῦ ἐξαμίτου τάπητος μαγικῇ τέχνῃ ἀνελισσομένου ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ.

Thanks for posting these.
Do you think it would be interesting/possible for "magically" to be made more explicit by adding something like magia quadam or magica arte?

My son!

He soon reached the palace of the king, where his royal father-in-law-to-be was waiting to greet him


Fili mi!

Brevique pervenit ad aulam regis, ubi ipse futurus socer ejus exspectabat dum salutaret eum.

Τέκνον.

Καὶ ἐν βραχεῖ ἀφίκετο ἐπὶ τὴν αὐλὴν τοῦ βασιλέως, ὅπου αὐτὸς ὁ μέλλων πενθερὸς αὐτοῦ ἀνέμενεν ἀσπάσασθαι αὐτόν.

The princess Amina awaits you in the garden, Aladdin!

In his fine clothes, Aladdin looked more handsome than ever. The king was already feeling proud to have such a son-in-law and a rich one besides!

Regina Amina expectat te in horto, Aladdin!

Sic vestitus Aladdin quam speciosus erat visu. Rex autem jam gloriabatur se habere hujusmodi generem et præcipue divitem!

Ἀμίνη ἡ βασίλισσα προσδοκᾷ σε ἐν τῷ κήπῳ, Ἀλαντίν.

Οὕτως μὲν περισταλμένος ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ὅτι ὡραῖος ἦν ἰδεῖν. Ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς ἤδη ἐκαυχᾶτο ἔχων τοιοῦτον γαμβρὸν ἄλλως τε καὶ πλούσιον.


Princess!

Aladdin!

And when the princess Amina saw him, she knew Aladdin was the prince she had always dreamed about.


Ο regina!

Ο Aladdin!

Cum autem regina Amina eum vidisset, cognovit Aladdinem esse regulum in somnis semper visum.

Ὦ βασίλλισα.

Ὦ Ἀλαντίν.

Ἡ δὲ βασίλισσα Ἀμίνη ἰδοῦσα αὐτὸν ἔγνω τὸν Ἀλαντὶν ὄντα τὸν βασιλίσκον ἐνύπνιον ἀεὶ ὁρώμενον.

Within a few days they were married amid great pomp and ceremony.

Paucos post dies splendidis nuptiis vir et uxor facti sunt.

Διὰ δ' ὀλίγων ἡμερῶν λαμπρῷ γάμῳ ἀνὴρ καὶ γυνὴ ἐγένοντο.

Your palace is magnificent, Aladdin!

Wait til you see inside!


Regia tua est magnifica, ο Aladdin!

Mane dum videas partem interiorem!

Τὰ βασίλειά σού ἐστι μεγαλοπρεπῆ, ὦ Ἀλαντίν.

Μεῖνον ἕως ἂν ἴδῃς τὰ ἐντός.

And went to live in the magnificent new palace the genie had built.

For many months Aladdin and his princess lived happily, and had everything they wished for.


Et migraverunt in magnificam novam regiam a genio ædificatam.

Per autem multos menses Aladdin et regina feliciter viverunt, habentes omnia desiderabilia.

Καὶ μετῴκησαν τοῖς μεγαλοπρεπέσιν νέοις βασιλείοις ὑπὸ τοῦ δαίμονος οἰκοδομηθεῖσιν.

Διὰ δὲ πολλοὺς μῆνας ὁ Ἀλαντὶν καὶ ἡ βασίλισσα εὐτυχῶς ἔζησαν, ἔχοντες πάντα τὰ ἐπιθυμητά.

I was wondering why you chose to put "οἰκοδομηθέντα" into the accusative case when "τοῖς μεγαλοπρεπέσιν νέοις βασιλείοις" is in the dative. Is this "case attraction" within a relative clause? It seems weird because it a passive participle so I'm not sure why it would need to shift to the accusative case. I'm no expert though.

Arrgh! It can’t be. Aladdin? But it is?!

At last the news of the young prince’s great wealth and popularity reached the wicked old magician! He looked into his crystal ball to see if it were really true!


Ah! Fieri non potest! Aladdin? Re vera?

Postremo nuntiatum est malo veterique mago de juvenis reguli magnis divitiis et gloria. Inspexit ergo globum crystallinum ut videret si verum quidem esset!

Αἴ. ᾿Αδύνατον. Ἀλαντίν; Ὄντως;

Τὸ δὲ τελευταῖον ἀπηγγέλθη τῷ πονηρῷ παλαιῷ τε μάγῳ περὶ τοῦ νέου βασιλίσκου ἔχοντος μέγαν πλοῦτον καὶ δόξαν. Ἔβλεψεν οὖν εἰς τὴν κρυσταλλίνην σφαῖραν τοῦ ἰδεῖν εἰ μὴν ἀληθῶς ἔχοι.

Bah! Fooey! And to think I showed that boy the lamp!

When he knew it was so, he flew into a terrible rage, for he realized Aladdin had learned the secret of the lamp.


Vah! Ηeu! Me ipsum ostendisse puero lucernam!

Cum cognovisset rem sic se habere, horribile visu, iratus est. Intellexit enim Aladdinem didicisse secretum lucernæ.

Αἰβοῖ. Φεῦ. Ἐμὲ αὐτὸν δεῖξαι τῷ παιδὶ τὸ λυχνάριον.

Γνοὺς δὲ τοῦτο οὕτως ἔχον, δεινὸν ἰδέσθαι, ὠργίσθη. Συνῆκε γὰρ τὸν Ἀλαντὶν μεμαθηκότα τὸ ἀπόρρητον τοῦ λυχναρίου.

Then he took ship and sailed to Aladdin’s country.

Deinde in navem ingressus vela dedit ad Aladdinis terram.

Εἶτα ἐπὶ ναῦν ἐπιβὰς ἀνήχθη πρὸς τὴν τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν χώραν.

Hmmm! He doesn’t carry the lamp with him!

When he reached the city, he disguised himself as a peddler selling lamps and spied upon Aladdin.


A! Non fert lucernam!

Deinde cum pervenisset ad urbem et induisset vestimenta cauponis qui lucernas venderet
explorabat Aladdinem.

Ἆ. Οὐ φέρει τὸ λυχνάριον.

Ἔπειτα ἀφικόμενος εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ ἐνδυσάμενος ἱμάτια καπήου λυχνάρια πωλοῦντος κατεσκόπει τὸν Ἀλαντίν.

Lamps for trade!

Next, he went to Aladdin’s palace, shouting the he would trade new lamps for old ones. In this way he hoped to learn if the wonderful lamp was kept there.


Lucernas pro lucernis!

Postea venit ad Aladdinis regiam, clamans se novas lucernas veteribus permutaturum esse. Sic enim sperabat se cogniturum esse si lucernam illic conservaretur.

Λυχνάρια πρὸς λυχνάρια.

Μετὰ τοῦτο ἦλθεν πρὸς τὰ τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν βασίλεια, βοῶν νέα λυχνάρια πρὸς παλαιὰ καταλλάξεσθαι. Οὕτω γὰρ ἤλπιζε γνώσεσθαι εἰ τὸ λυχνάριον ἐκεῖ τηροῖτο.

What a silly peddler!

New lamps for old! Have you any to trade?

A servant girl in the palace heard him shouting, and laughed to herself.


Quam stultus caupo!

Novas lucernas pro veteribus! Habesne ut permutes?

Ancilla quædam in regia, cum audivisset eum clamantem, secum ipsa risit.

Ὡς ἀνόητος κάπηλος.

Νέα λυχνάρια πρὸς παλαιά. Ἆρα ἔχεις καταλλάξῃ;

Παιδίσκη δέ τις ἐν τοῖς βασιλείοις, ἀκούσασα αὐτοῦ βοῶντος, πρὸς ἑαυτὴν ἐγέλασεν.

I'm wondering about abditum for "secret". I can't really explain why but in my mind there is some idea of materiality attached to abditus used as a substantive, kind of like "the secret [place] of the lamp", "the place where the lamp is hidden". This might be completely off though :D

I'm trying to recollect my thoughts about the choice and I think that I liked that idea of materiality that abditum has because you do need to rub the lamp with your own lands. I thought also of occultum, secretum...

PS

I changed my mind and decided for secretum instead.

I’ll just see if he means what he says.

She decided to take him at his word! She knew where there was an old, brass lamp.


Videbo saltem utrum sentiat dicta.

Ideo consilium cepit ut crederet ei! Sciebat enim ubi vetus lucerna ænea quædam posita esset.

Ὄψομαί γε πότερον φρονεῖ τὰ εἰρημένα.

Ἐβουλεύσατο οὖν πείθεσθαι αὐτῷ. ᾜδη γὰρ ὅπου παλαιὸν χαλκοῦν λυχνάριόν τι κεῖται.

The master never uses this old lamp. It hasn’t even been dusted for months

The girl hurried to Aladdin’s bedroom, and took down the lamp from a high shelf. She never dreamed that it held the secret of all Aladdin’s riches.


Erus numquam utitur vetere lucerna ista. Ne diu et longum quidem detergetur.

Puella igitur festinans in Aladdinis cubiculum dempsit de alta tabula lucernam. Neque vero ipsa per somnum cognovit in illa secretum divitiarum Aladdinis positum esse.

Ὁ δεσπότης οὐδέποτε χρῆται τῷ παλαιῷ λυχναρίῳ τούτῳ. Οὐδὲ πολὺν χρόνον ἀπομάσσεται.

Ἡ οὖν παῖς σπεύσασα εἰς τὸν τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν χοιτῶνα ἀφείλετο ἀπὸ σανίδος ὑψηλῆς τινος τὸ λυχνάριον. Οὐδὲ δὴ ὄναρ αὐτὴ ἔγνω ἐν αὐτῇ τὸ ἀπόρρητον τοῦ πλούτου τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν κείμενον.

Look, peddler! Will you trade for this?

Ahh! Of course, of course!

But the old peddler, who was really the magician in disguise, knew the lamp very well indeed! He almost snatched it out of her hands.


Vide, caupo! Permutabisne hanc?

A! Scilicet!

Vetus autem caupo, qui vero erat magus indutus, non tamen ignorabat lucernam. Etenim modo non rapuit hanc e manibus illius.


Ἴδε, κάπηλε. Ἆρα καταλλάξει τόδε;

Ἆ. Πάνυ γε.

Ὁ δὲ παλαιὸς κάπηλος, ὁ δὴ ἐνδεδυμένος μάγως ὤν, οὐ μὴν ἠγνόει τὸ λύχναριον. Καὶ γὰρ ὅσον οὐκ ἤρπασε τοῦτο ἐκ τῶν χειρῶν ἐκείνης. \

I have it! I have it!

The magician did not trade any more lamps that day! He hurried away to be by himself and think of the revenge he would have.


Teneo! Teneo!

Et illa die magus lucernas non permutavit amplius! Fugit autem ut solus cogitaret quo modo ulturus esset.

Ἔχω. Ἔχω.

Καὶ ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ὁ μάγος οὐκέτι λυχνάρια κατηλλάξατο. Ἔφυγεν δὲ ἵνα μόνος λογίζοιτο πῶς μέλλοι ἐκδικεῖν.

And Aladdin, out hunting, a day journey’s from home, had no idea of the ugly surprise waiting for him.


Aladdin autem, qui venabatur unius diei domo, minine noverat calamitatem ei futuram.

Ὁ δ' Ἀλαντίν, θήραν ποιούμενος διὰ μιᾶς ἡμέρας οἴκοθεν, οὐδαμῶς ᾔδει τὸ δυστύχημα αὐτῷ μέλλον.

You rubbed the lamp! I am at your command!

Take the palace of Aladdin…

At midnight the magician summoned the genie, and told him to carry Aladdin’s palace and everyone in it to Africa!


Attrivisti lucernam! Sub tuo imperio sum.

Tollens regiam Aladdinis...

Media autem nocte magus, genio excitato, jussit eum ferre regiam Aladdinis una cum omnibus qui intus essent in Africam!

Ἀποτέτριφας τὸ λυχνάριον. Ὑπὸ σοῦ εἰμι.

Ἂρας τὰ βασίλεια τοῦ Ἀλαντίν...

Μέσων δὲ νυκτῶν ὁ μάγος ἐπαγαγὼν τὸν δαίμονα ἐκέλευσεν αὐτὸν ἐνεγκεῖν τὰ τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν βασίλεια πᾶσιν τοῖς ἔνδον οὖσιν εἰς τὴν Ἀφρικήν.

Chief courtier! Come here at once!

Early the next morning, the king went to the window for a look at the golden dome of Aladdin’s palace, on the other side of town but he could not find it.


Princeps aulice, statim veni huc!

Postridie autem mane cum venisset rex ad fenestram ut adspiceret rotundam auream regiæ Aladdinis in alterum locum urbis, non invenit.

Ἀρχιαυλικέ, εὐθὺς ἐλθὲ δεῦρο.

Τῇ δ' ὑστεραίᾳ πρωῒ ὁ βασιλεὺς, ἐλθὼν πρὸς τὴν θυρίδα βλέψαι τὴν χρυσῆν θόλον τῶν τοῦ Ἀλαντὶν βασιλείων εἰς τὰ ἐπὶ θάτερα τῆς πόλεως, οὐχ εὗρεν.

I think my vision is getting dim! I can’t see Aladdin’s palace.

Neither can I, your majesty!

He could not believe, at first, thet the wonderful new home of his beloved daughter was no longer there.


Suspicor aciem oculorum hebetare! Nequeo enim videre regiam Aladdinis.

Neque ego, ο rex!

Primum quidem non potuit sibi persuadere novam filiæ dilectæ miram domum non amplius illic stare.

Ὑποπτεύω τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς ἀμβλύνεσθαι. Ἀδυνατῶ γὰρ ἰδεῖν τὰ βασίλεια τοῦ Ἀλαντίν.

Οὐδ' ἐγώ, ὦ βασιλεῦ.

Τὸ μὲν πρῶτον οὐκ ἐδυνήθη πείσαι ἑαυτὸν τὸν νέον τῆς ἀγαπητῆς θυγατρὸς θαυμάσιον οἶκον οὐκέτι ἐκεῖ ἱστάμενον.


It’s Aladdin’s fault! Arrest him!

Yes, your majesty!

When he finally did believe it, he flew into a rage! He said Aladdin must have taken his daughter and the new palace away by magic.


Αladdin culpandus est! Comprehendite eum!

Ηοc agimus, rex!

Tandem autem, cum sibi persuasisset, iratus est dicens sine dubio Aladdinem magica arte abstulisse filiam ejus novamque regiam.

Ὁ Ἀλαντὶν αἴτιός ἐστι. Συλλάβετε αὐτόν.

Ταῦτ' ὦ βασιλεῦ.

Τέλος δὲ πείσας ἑαυτὸν ὠργίσθη, λέγων ὅτι ἀμφιβόλως ὁ Ἀλαντὶν μαγικῇ τέχνῃ ἀφῄρηκε τήν τε θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ νέα βασίλεια.

It’s good to be home again!

Later that day, Aladdin and his hunting companions rode back to town little guessing what had happened.


Bonum est rursus domi esse!

Serius autem ejusdem diei Aladdin et in venatu socii ejus revecti sunt in urbem nequaquam suspicantes facta.

Ἀγαθὸν αὐθὶς οἴκοι εἶναι.

Ὀψιαίτερον δὲ τῆς αὐτῆς ἡμέρας ὁ Ἀλαντὶν καὶ οἱ ἐν τῇ θήρᾳ ἑταῖροι αὐτοῦ ἀπήλαυνον εἰς τὴν πόλιν οὐδαμῶς ὑποπτεύοντες τὰ γενόμενα.

What! What’s this?

You are under arrest

Suddenly soldiers appeared and seized the bridle of Aladdin’s horse. They told him nothing, except that the king had ordered him taken prisoner.


Quidnam hoc rei est?

Comprehensus es.

Subito autem milites aggredientes habenam ceperunt equi Aladdinis. Cui nullum verbum fecerunt præterquam regem jussisse eum comprehendi.

Τί, τί δὴ τοῦτο;

Συνειλημμένος εἶ.

Ἐξαίφνης δὲ στρατιῶται προσελθόντες τὸν χαλινὸν ἐλαβον τοῦ ἵππου τοῦ Ἀλαντίν. Οὐδ’ εἶπον αὐτῷ λόγον πλὴν ὅτι ὁ βασιλεὺς κεκέλευκεν αὐτὸν συλληφθῆναι.


He was bound and marched into the throne room where the king was waiting for him.

Qui itaque vinctus inductus est in aulam, ubi rex expectabat eum.

Ὁ ἄρα δεθεὶς εἰσήχθη εἰς τὴν αὐλήν, ὅπου ὁ βασιλεὺς προσεδόκα αὐτόν.

Tandem autem, cum sibi persuasisset, iratus est dicens necessario Aladdinem magica arte abstulisse filiam ejus novamque regiam.

Just two questions/remarks:
- would agamus be possible/better than agimus?
- necessario gives me the impression that the sentence reads more like "He said Aladdin was compelled to take his daughter away". Could something like iratus est dicens Aladdinem sine dubio... do the trick? Or maybe using censeo (with or without sine dubio), iratus est censens Aladdinem (sine dubio).../iratus est dicens censendum esse Aladdinem (sine dubio)...?

Many thanks for keeping an eye on this! I found hoc ago as a translation for ταῦτα somewhere. So I let it stay. I did change necessario into sine dubio.

Your majesty, for what crime am I arrested?

The king was frantic. Thinking Aladdin responsible for the loss of his daughter, he ordered his son-in-law to bring her back…


Ο rex, quid sceleris admisi ut comprehensus sim?

Rex autem furebat. Qui enim arbitrans Aladdinem culpandum quia ipse filia privatus esset, jussit generem referre eam,

Ὦ βασιλεῦ, τί ἀδικήσας συνείλημμαι;

Ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς ἐμαίνετο. Ὁ γὰρ νομίζων τὸν Ἀλαντιν αἴτιον εἶναι τοῦ αὐτὸν τῆς θυγατρός στερηθῆναι, ἐκέλευσε τὸν γαμβρὸν ἀνακομίσαι αὐτήν,

But I do not understand, your majesty…!

...or be thrown into prison. Not knowing what the king was talking about, Aladdin could make no reply.


Sed non intellego, rex!

...aut in carcerem conici. Aladdin autem, nesciens qua de re sermonem rex haberet, non poterat respondere.

Ἀλλ' οὐ συνίημι, βασιλεῦ.

ἢ εἰς δεσμωτήριον ἐμβληθῆναι. Ὁ δ' Ἀλαντίν, ἀγνῶν περὶ τίνος ὁ βασιλεὺς λόγον ποιοῖτο, οὐχ οἷος τ' ἦν ἀποκριθῆναι.

This is the work of the wicked magician!

But after he had been locked up in prison, his guard told him how the palace had disappeared in the night and the princess with it.


Ιsta est machinatio scelesti magi!

Et cum ille in carcere conclusus esset, custos narravit ei quomodo regia noctu evanuisset una cum regina.

Αὕτὴ ἐστὶ ἡ μηχανὴ τοῦ πονηροῦ μάγου.

Καὶ ἐκείνου ἐν τῷ δεσμωτηρίῳ κατακλεισθέντος, ὁ φύλαξ διηγήσατο αὐτῷ ὅπως τὰ βασίλεια ἐν νυκτὶ ἠφανίσθη αὐτῇ τῇ βασιλίσσῃ.

Oh, if there were only something I could do!

That night, Aladdin could not sleep. He felt so unhappy that he twisted his hands together rubbing the ring that he had taken, long ago, from the secret cavern.


Utinam esset quid in mea potestate!

Illa autem nocte Aladdin non potuit dormire. Sic enim mærebat ut, contortis manibus,
fricuerit anulum quem jampridem a secreta spelunca cepisset.

Εἴθε εἴην τινὸς ἐγκρατής.

Ἐκείνῃ δὲ τῇ νυκτὶ ὁ Ἀλαντὶν οὐκ ἐδυνήθη καθεύδειν. Οὕτω γὰρ ἐλυπεῖτο ὥστε, συστραφεισῶν τῶν χειρῶν, ψῆν τὸ δακτύλιον ὃ ἐκ πολλοῦ ἤδη ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀποκρύφου σπηλαίου εἰλήφει.


Hello! I am the servant of the ring, at your command!

The, the ring?


As he did so, another genie suddenly stood beside him, ready for orders. For a moment Aladdin did not understand.

Salve! Ego sum servus anuli, sub tuo imperio.

Anuli vero?

Illo autem hæc faciente, alius genius quis subito stetit juxta eum ut paratus ad præcepta. Aladdin autem confestim non intellexit.

Χαῖρε. Ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ δοῦλος τοῦ δακτυλίου, ὁ ὑπὸ σοῦ ὤν.

Τοῦ δὴ δακτυλίου;

Ἐκείνου δὲ ταῦτα ποιοῦντος, ἄλλος δαίμων τις ἐξαίφνης ἑστήκει παρὰ αὐτῷ ὡς ἕτοιμος προσταχθῆναι. Ὁ δ' Ἀλαντὶν παραχρῆμα οὐ συνῆκεν.


Take me at once to my wife, the princess!

Then he remembered the ring he had taken from the secret garden below the ground. He gave a glad command.


Statim porta me ad uxorem meam, reginam!

Deinde vero memor anuli quem ceperat ab horto secreto subterraneo, læte imperavit.

Αὐτίκα βάστασόν με παρὰ τὴν γυναῖκά μου τὴν βασίλισσαν.

Ἔπειτα δὴ μνησθεὶς τοῦ δακτυλίου ὃ εἰλήφει ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀποκρύφου καταγείου κήπου, εὐφρόνως προσέταξεν.

Amina! My Princess!

Sob! Sob!

No sooner had he spoken than he found himself standing under his palace window, looking up at his princess-wife! She did not see him, because she was weeping, but when he spoke…


Αmina, regina mea!

Oiei!

Simul ac dixit, stabat sub fenestra regiæ, oculos attollens ad reginam et uxorem. Quæ quidem non vidit eum quia lacrimabatur, vocante autem illo,

Ἀμίνα, βασίλισσά μου.

Ἔ, ἔ.

Οὐδ’ ἔφθη εἰπὼν καὶ εὐθὺς εἱστήκει ὑπὸ τῇ θυρίδι τῶν βασιλείων, ἀναβλέπων τὴν βασίλισσαν καὶ γυναῖκα. Ἡ μὲν οὐκ εἶδεν αὐτὸν ὅτι ἐδάκρυεν, φωνήσαντος δ’ ἐκείνου,


Aladdin! I thought I would never see you.

I thought so, too!

She looked down with a glad little cry and ran quickly to greet her beloved husband.


Aladdin! Arbitrabar me numquam te visuram!

Etiam ego!

...despexit et, vocula emissa, læta cucurrit ad salutandum maritum dilectum.

Ἀλαντίν, ᾤμην οὔποτε ὄψεσθαί σε.

Κἀγώ.

..καθεῖδε καί, προϊεῖσα φωνίον τι, ἡδομένη ἔδραμεν προσειπεῖν τὸν ἀγαπητὸν ἄνδρα.

I will take you away, with the help of my ring.

Shhh! Come in and speak softly!

Aladdin lost no time in climbing up to the window, but Amina warned him to be quiet, lest any of the servants should hear and tell the magician.


Afferam te per anulum!

Tace! Ingressus remitte vocem!

Itaque Aladdin statim ascendit per fenestram, Amina autem monuit eum ut taceret, ne servus quidam audiens diceret mago.

Ἀφαιροῦμαί σε διὰ τοῦ δακτυλίου.

Σίγησον. Εἰσελθὼν ὕφες τὴν φωνήν.

Ὁ μὲν οὖν Ἀλαντὶν εὐθὺς ἀνέβη διὰ τὴν θυρίδα, ἡ δ' Ἀμίνη ἐνουθέτησεν αὐτὸν σιγῆσαι, μὴ δοῦλός τις ἀκούσας εἴποι τῷ μάγῳ.

I have only to rub this ring and the genie who serves it will take.

No, Aladdin!

When he had told his story, the princess objected strongly to his plan. She reminded Aladdin that the wicked magician still had the lamp and was powerful enough to spoil everything.


Tantum mihi anulus hic fricandus est ut genius servus ejus portet...

Minime, Aladdin!

Εt cum audisset illius narrationem, regina omnino improbavit consilium ejus. Nam Aladdinem monuit magum scelestum etiam nunc lucerna præditum tam potentem esse ut omnia perderet.

Μόνον δεῖ με ψῆσαι τόδε τὸ δακτύλιον ὥστε τὸν δαίμονα τὸν δοῦλον αὐτοῦ βαστάσαι..

Οὐχί, Ἀλαντίν.

Kαὶ ἀκούσασα ἐκείνου τὸν λόγον, ἡ βασίλισσα πάντως ἀπεδοκίμασε τὴν βουλὴν αὐτοῦ. Ἡ γὰρ τὸν Ἀλαντὶν ἀνέμνησεν ὅτι ὁ πονηρὸς μάγος ἔτι καὶ νῦν τὸ λυχνάριον ἔχων οὕτω δύναιτο ὥστε ἀπολέσαι πάντα.

But where is the lamp?

The magician carries it with him!

She said that the magician was away from the palace just now, and they must make plans to get the lamp away from him.


Ubinam est lucerna?

Magus secum fert eam.

Aitque magum quidem a regia modo abesse, ipsis autem opus esse consilium capere ut amoverent lucernam ab eo.

Ποῦ ποτέ ἐστι τὸ λυχνάριον;

Ὁ μάγος φέρεται αὐτό.

Καὶ ἔφη τὸν μὲν μάγον ἀπὸ τῶν βασιλείων ἄρτι ἀπεῖναι, δεῖν δ' αὐτοὺς βουλεύσασθαι ὅπως ἀπαλλάξαιεν τὸ λυχναχίου ἀπ' αὐτοῦ.

Ummm! Let me see!

Aladdin thought and thought! He knew that they must take the lamp without the magician knowing it or else the magician would rub the lamp and command the genie.


Ο, agedum!

Aladdin autem in pectore diu volutavit. Sciebat enim ipsis lampadam, mago non animadvertente, capiendam esse; alioquin magus, lampada fricata, genium imperaret.

Ὦ, φέρε δή.

Ὁ δ' Ἀλαντὶν πολὺν χρόνον ἐνεθυμήθη. Ηἴδει γὰρ δέον αὐτοὺς, λαθόντας τὸν μάγον, λαβέσθαι τὸ λυχνάριον · εἰ δὴ μὴ ὁ μάγος ψήσας τὸ λυχνάριον ἐπιτάξαι τὸν δαίμονα.

Hi bedwere,

I took the liberty to have a go this page. Not saying that I am dissatisfied with your translations, of course! I figured I would be less tempted to look at yours if I did it beforehand but there are some places where I struggled ("I have only to...", etc), so I'm looking forward to reading your translation.

- Regina mea, Amina!
Simul ac locutus est, repperit se sub fenestra regiae stare - uxorem etiam suspiciebat! Quae eum non vidit, quia plorabat. Sed quando locutus est...

- Aladdin! Putavi me nunquam te visuram...
- Et ego quoque!
Laeta voce emissa, oculos demisit celeriterque ad salutandum dilectum maritum cucurrit.

- Anulo juvante, te auferam...
- Shhh! Intra, voce submissa loquere!
Aladdin sine mora ad fenestram ascendit. Amina autem monuit, ut quiete faceret, ne ullus famulus audiret qui magum certiorem faceret.

- Genius, famulus anuli, auferet, dummodo atteram...
- Minime, Aladdin!
Cum is cuncta narravisset, regina consilium vehementer rejecit. Aladdini objecit scelestum magum etiam tum lucernam tenere...et eum satis potestatis habere ut omnia in mala verteret.

- Sed ubi est lucerna?
- Magus secum fert!
Dixit magum tunc a regia abesse et consilium faciendum, ut lucernam ab eo auferant.

- Ummm! Quid faciamus?
Aladdin iterum atque iterum rem secum volvit! Sciebat lucernam auferendam esse mago insciente. Quod nisi accideret, magus lucernam attereret et genio imperaret.


Edit. It's nice to see how close our translations are sometimes (and it's of course even nicer to see how you've handled to passages where I struggled) :-)
Would you mind if I asked your advice about the use of etiam nunc/etiam tum in the fourth image. I used etiam tum because the narration is in the past tense but I realize now that the speaker's perspective (etiam nunc) might be more important. Do you think both are possible?
The other point is somewhat related: I used auferant instead of auferrent, trying to emulate what is described in A&G 585b, does it make sense to you or is it way off?

No problem, if you don't have time to answer, I realize this is not the purpose of the thread. In the same way, don't hesitate to tell me if me posting a translation is more an annoyance than anything. Also, if (by a rare chance) I happen to have written something that makes sense, feel free to use it in the final version if you wish to.

Very nice!

As for your first question, although I'm just an amateur (so caveat emptor :D), I think that both nunc and tum are possible. Lewis and Short say that regarding nunc and there are no questions about tum.
Regarding the violation of the consecutio temporum you suggest, I think it is very dramatic. Even classical authors did not always follow it. Maybe in imitation of the Greek syntax, where you always put yourself in the speaker's perspective?

I have a question for you though. Where did you find "quiete facere" with the ablative?

Thank you for your comments!

I thought of quiete as an adverb. I don't remember if I found quiete facere somewhere or if I kind of came up with it on the spot (influenced by the English original?). Reading your translation (ut taceret) and rechecking the original, I see that I was probably mistaken in thinking this sentence refered to Aladdin climbing (hence my using facere), while it seems to apply to his having no to talk too loud.

Thank you. I've just realized that Aladdin wasn't really asking to see something, as I thought. I'll change that.

I have it!

Tell me quickly!

All at once the idea came to him! He would go to the nearest town and buy something that would make the wicked magician sleep.


Τeneo.

Age, dic mihi.

Subito consilium datum est ei. Ipsum nempe progressum ad proximum vicum empturum esse aliquid somno ad magum adferendo.

Eὕρηκα.

Φέρε, εἰπέ μοι.

Ἐξαίφνης βουλὴ ἐδόθη αὐτῷ. Aὐτὸν δηλαδὴ προελθόντα εἰς τὴν ἐγγυτάτην κώμην ὠνήσεσθαί τι ὑπνοῦν τὸν μάγον.

Come back after dark, Aladdin. So he won’t see you.

Acting on the sudden idea, Aladdin climbed quickly down from the window.


Nocte redi, Aladdin. Ne videat te.

Aladdin ergo, consilio subito agens, cito descendit de fenestra.

Νυκτὸς ἐπάνελθε, Ἀλαντίν. Ἵνα μὴ ἴδῃ σε.

Ὁ ἄρα Ἀλαντὶν,τῇ ἐξαιφνιδίῃ βουλῇ χρώμενος, ταχέως κατῆλθεν ἐκ τῆς θυρίδος.

And crept away through the bushes until he was at a safe distance from any of the magician’s servants, who might see him.

Εt serpuit per dumos donec tuto distavit a magi servis, qui visuri eum fuerint.

Καὶ ἧρψε διὰ τῶν θάμνων ἕως ἀσφαλῶς ἀπέσχεν ἀπὸ τῶν τοῦ μάγου δούλων, τῶν ὁρώντων ἂν αὐτόν.


He found a town, only a few miles away, and went straight to an apothecary’s shop hoping to find what he needed.

Ιnventoque a paucis milibus passibus vico, sperans se quod sibi opus erat inventurum, recta ivit ad tabernam medicinam.

Καὶ εὑρὼν κώμην ὅσον τε τριάκοντα στάδια ἀπέχουσαν, ἐλπίζων εὑρήσειν οὗ ἐδεῖτο, εὐθὺ ἦλθεν πρὸς φαρμακοπώλιον.

Well, young sir! How can I help you?

I want something that..

To his joy the apothecary said he knew what aladdin must use and agree to make a little of it.


Numquid est quod opera mea tibi opus sit, o juvenis?

Volo quo...

Medicamentarius autem Aladdinem lætificavit dicens se, scientem quo opus ei esset uti, consentire ad pausillum faciendum.

Μή τί σοί τινα ὄνησιν δύναμαι φέρειν, ὦ νεανία;

Βούλομαι ᾧτινι...

Ὁ δὲ φαρμακοπώλης ἡδόνην τῷ Ἀλαντὶν παρέσχε λέγων ὅτι, εἰδὼς ᾧτινι αὐτὸν δέον χρήσασθαι, ὁμολογοίη ὀλίγον τι ποιῆσαι.

You must pay me well! Fifty pieces of gold!

I haven’t got it! But

He took a long time, but at last brought out a tiny bottle, for which he asked a large sum of money.


Εffuse solves mihi! Quinquaginta aureos!

Careo. Tamen...

Et diu moratus tandem extulit lagunculam, pro qua permagnam pecuniam poposcit.

Ἀφειδῶς τείσεις μοι. Πεντήκοντα χρυσοῦς.

Δέομαί γε. Ὅμως δέ...

Ὅ τε πολὺν χρόνον διατρίψας τέλος ἐξήνεγκε λαγύνιόν τι, ἀνθ' οὗ παμμεγέθη χρήματα ᾔτησεν.

What are your commands?

Awwk! Where did he come from?

Aladdin rubbed his ring and the genie of the ring appeared.


Quid præcipis mihi?

Vah! Unde venit iste?

Aladdin igitur fricuit anulum, cujus autem genius apparuit.

Τί ἐπιτάσσεις μοι;

Ἔα· πόθεν οὗτος ἐλήλυθεν;

Ὁ μὲν οὖν Ἀλαντὶν ἔψησε τὸ δακτύλιον, ὁ δὲ δαίμων αὐτοῦ ἐφάνη.

Bring me a purse

At once!

Aladdin ordered a purse with a hundred pieces of gold!


Αffer mihi sacculum!

Hoc ago!

Et Aladdin postulavit sacculum centum aureorum plenum!

Ἔνεγκέ μοι σάκκιον.

Ταῦτα.

Καὶ ὁ Ἀλαντὶν ᾔτησε σάκκιον ἑκατὸν χρυσῶν πλῆρες.

Instantly a large leather pouch appeared in mid-air.

Τum autem magna pera suspensa apparuit.

Αὐτόθι δὲ πήρα μεγάλη μετεώρως ἐφάνη.

There you are!

Aladdin placed it in the hand of the apothecary, and took the little phial! The apothecary was too surprised to say a word!


Ecce!

Qua in medicamentarii manum tradita, Aladdin lagunculam cepit. Medicamentarius autem magis admirabatur quam ut verbum faceret.

Ἰδού.

Ὁ μὲν Ἀλαντὶν παραδοὺς αὐτὴν τῷ φαρμακοπώλῃ εἵλετο τὸ λαγύνιον. Ὁ δὲ φαρμακοπώλης μᾶλλον ἐθαύμαζεν ἢ ὥστε γρῦ φθέγγεσθαι.


I hope I’ll find Amina alone!

It was well after dark when Aladdin came in sight of the palace! He hoped that the magician had not eaten supper yet.


Utinam incidam in Aminam unam.

Νοcte jam facta, regia apparuit Aladdini. Qui autem sperabat magum nondum cenasse.

Εἴθε ἐπιτύχοιμι τῇ Ἀμίνῃ μόνῃ οὔσῃ.

Νυκτὸς δ' ἤδη γενομένης τὰ βασίλεια κατεφάνη τῷ Ἀλαντίν. Ὁ δ' ἤλπιζε τὸν μάγον μήπω δειπνῆσαι.

Amina, hsst!

He reached the window of the princess’ chambers without being seen, and called to her softly.

Amina, st!

Et cum invisus pervenisset ad fenestram in reginæ conclavibus, remissa voce vocavit eam.

Ἀμίνη, σῖγα.

Καὶ λαθὼν ἀφικόμενος πρὸς τὴν θυρίδα τῶν τῆς βασιλίσσης δωματίων, ὑφεὶς τὴν φωνὴν ἐκάλεσεν αὐτήν.


Where is the magician?

Downstairs!

She greeted him eagerly, and told him that the magicians would come upstairs at any minute to have supper with her.


Ubi est magus?

Descendit.

Quæ, cum eum vehementer salutasset, ait magum mox ascensurum esse ad cenandum cum ipsa.

Ποῦ ἐστιν ὁ μάγος;

Καταβέβηκεν.

Ἡ δέ, μεγάλως ἀσπασαμένη αὐτόν, ἔφη τὸν μάγον αὐτίκα ἀναβήσεσθαι ὡς συνδειπνήσοντα ἑαυτῇ.

Luck is with us! Take this!

Aladdin told his wife to put the powder into the magician’s cup of tea when he wasn’t looking. Then, when the wicked magician was asleep, they would get the lamp.


Fortuna nos favet! Accipe!

Aladdin autem jussit uxorem infundere pulverem, mago non adspiciente, in pocillum ejus. Deinde, mago scelesto dormiente, ipsos lucernam rapturos esse.

Εὐτυχοῦμεν. Λαβέ.

Ὁ δ' Αλαντὶν ἐκέλευσε τὴν γυναῖκα ἐγχέαι τὴν κόνιν, τοῦ μάγου οὐ βλέποντος, εἰς τὸ κυλίκιον αὐτοῦ. Ἐπεῖτα, τοῦ πονηροῦ μάγου καθεύδοντος, αὐτοὺς τὸ λυχνάριον ἁρπάσεσθαι.

Princess, is supper ready?

Aladdin, quickly!

They had hardly finished talking when they heard the magician coming. Amina pushed Aladdin into a closet, where he could not be seen.


Regina, estne cena parata?

Aladdin, festina!

Qui cum finem dicendi modo fecissent audierunt magum venientem. Amina autem pepulit Aladdinem in cellam, ubi ne videretur.

Βασίλισσα, ἆρα τὸ δεῖπνον παρεσκεύασται;

Ἀλαντίν, σπεῦδε.

Οἱ δ' ἄρτι παυσάμενοι τοῦ λόγου ἤκουσαν τὸν μάγον ἐρχόμενον. Ἡ δ` Ἀμίνη ἔωσε τὸν Ἀλαντὶν εἰς οἴκημα, ὅπου μὴ ὁρῷτο.

Aha! It smells good!

The princess was waiting, with downcast eyes as the magician entered. She had already emptied the powder into one of the cups.


Ah, bene olet!

Et regina expectabat dejectis in terram oculis dum magus introibat. Effuderat enim jam pulverem in pocillum quoddam.

Ἆ, ἡδὺ ὄζει.

Καὶ ἡ βασίλισσα προσέδοκων κατηφής, τοῦ μάγου εἰσερχομένου. Ἐξεκεχύκει γὰρ ἤδη τὴν κόνιν εἰς κυλίκιόν τι.

Instead of "Οἱ δὲ μόλις παυσάμενοι."

Perhaps "Οἱ δὲ ὀλίγου δεὶ παυσάμενοι."

I've seen μόλις used in more of a sense of "difficulty finishing" than a "lack of completion" sense.

But maybe there is some semantic shift in koine.

You’re trembling, my dear! But you’ll get over it!

With a shaking hand she handed the magician the cup with the apothecary’s powder in it! She hoped that he would not notice the taste and grow suspicious.


Τremis, amica. Sed superabis!

Et manu tremens tradidit mago pocillum habens medicamentarii pulverem. Sperabat vero illum ne gustando suspicaturum aliquid esse.

Τρέμεις, ὦ φίλε. Ἀλλὰ περιγενήσῃ.

Καὶ τρέμουσα τὴν χεῖρα παρέδωκε τῷ μάγῳ τὸ κυλίκιον ἔχον τὴν τοῦ φαρμακοπώλοῦ κόνιν. Ἤλπιζε δὴ ἐκεῖνον μὴ γευσάμενον ὑποπτεύσειν τι.

Delicious! A flavor quite new to me!

But the old schemer was so pleased with himself that he never dreamed of the princess playing a trick on him…


Quam suave! Etenim nove mihi sapit!

Vetus autem insidiator sibi tam placebat ut ne per somnum quidem cognosceret reginam dolum in ipsum nectere.

Ὡς ἡδύ. Καὶ γὰρ καινὸς χυλός ἐστί μοι.

Ὁ δὲ παλαιὸς ἐπιβουλευτὴς ἑαυτῷ οὕτως ἤρεσκεν ὥστε οὐδ' ὄναρ γνῶναι τὴν βασίλισσαν δόλον ἐφ' ἑαυτὸν ὑφαίνουσαν....

So! You put something in my, my…

...until the powder suddenly began to work! Fighting his sleepiness, the magician pulled the lamp halfway out.


Utique posuisti aliquid in... in...

...donec pulvis subito incepit operari. Magus autem nolens obdormiscere extraxit dimidiam partem lucernæ.


Ἄρα γ' ἔθηκάς τι ἐν τῷ... τῷ…

...ἕως ἡ κόνις ἐξαίφνης ἤρξατο ποιεῖν. Ὁ δὲ μάγος οὐκ ἐθέλων κατενεχθῆναι εἰς ὕπνον ἐξεῖλε θἤμισυ τοῦ λυχναρίου...


Aladdin, quick!

Guzz!

Then his eyes were shut, and his mouth opened in a long snore.


Aladdin, festina!

Sterto.

Deinde, oculis clausis, ore aperto, lente stertebat.

Ἀλαντίν, σπεῦδε.

Ῥέγχω.

Ἔπειτα, κλείσας μὲν τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς, διάρας δὲ τὸ στόμα, βραδέως ἔρεγχεν.

He is still holding it tight!

Aladdin bent over the magician, but he could not take the lamp without a hard pull! And a hard pull would make the magician’s hand rub the lamp! That would never do, because…


Adhuc detinet.

Aladdin autem, cum se ad magum inclinavisset, non poterat capere lucernam, nisi evellerat. Si vero evellisset, manus magi fricavisset lucernam. Sed hoc inutile fuisset quia...

Ἔτι κατέχει.

Ὁ δ' Ἀλαντὶν κλιθεὶς τῷ μάγῳ, οὐκ ἐδύνατο ἑλέσθαι τὸ λυχνάριον, εἰ μὴ ἀποσπάσαι. Εἰ δὴ ἀπέσπασεν, ἡ τοῦ μάγου χεὶρ ἔψησεν ἂν τὸ λυχνάριον. Ἀλλὰ τοῦτο ἄχρηστον ἂν ἐγένετο ὅτι...

How can we make him let go?

I, I’ll try!

...the genie would not do anything against the one who possessed the lamp.


Quomodo faciemus eum dimittere?

C... conabor!

... genius nihil fecisset in possessorem lucernæ.

Πῶς ποιήσομεν αὐτὸν ἀφιέναι;

Π...πειρήσομαι.

... ὁ δαίμων μηδὲν ἂν ἐποίησεν ἐπὶ τὸν ἔχοντα τὸ λυχνάριον.
