The Latin: Metamorphoses 10.18.1
W. Adlington Translation (2006)
Now , before I go further , I must tell you at least as I should have done at the start who my owner was , and where it was he hailed from .
Sed prius est ut vobis , quod initio facere debueram , vel nunc saltem referam , quis iste vel unde fuerit .
But first I will tell you ( which I should have done before ) who my master was , and of what country .
