So without giving anything away, I've been working with English translations of a racy (to early modern people, apparently) text for this book chapter I'm finishing.
This is only a sampling of one terrible Greek-to-English translation from the middle of the 17th century:
"Fish slime and Brine have made thy penance great,
Come now, into my bosome drop thy sweat."
Hmm . . . I think there's actually good reason why it didn't garner as much acclaim as the more famous version.
