That could work, haha.
And forgot to mention I really liked Adrian's "Navis Bacchi", that's a pretty friggin sweet idea

Quid significat "crapulatus rursum"? Scio et "crapulatus" et "rursum", sed "crapulatus rursum" nescio.

Hm, this is difficult. Perhaps something like piscis ebrius, "the drunken fish". It wouldn't have much of a back story, though, unless you care to invent one.

Ah, scilicet e Vulgata. :) Putabam ita esse, cum soleat, sed cum non invenissem, putavi fortasse aliunde excerptum esse et rogavi. Hic tamen habetur "exercebantur" nec "loquebantur"... Variae lectiones fortasse extant.
