NEC VERBO NEC FACTO
quenquam laedendum.

Injure no-one, either by word or deed.

Assequitur, Nemesisque virum vestigia servat
Continet & cubitum, duraque frena manu
Ne male quid facias, neve improba verba loquaris
Et iubet in cunctis rebus adesse modam [=modum] .[1]

Nemesis follows on and marks the tracks of men. In her hand she holds a measuring rod and harsh bridles. She bids you do nothing wrong, speak no wicked word, and commands that moderation be present in all things.

Notes:

1.  This epigram is based on Anthologia graeca 16.223-4.
