Venetian Dialect

One of the earliest examples of Venetian dialect in existence, Palazzo Ducale, Venice
Embedded into the lower wall, to the right of the so-called Tetrarchs, is one of the earliest examples of Venetian dialect in existence. 

The words are inscribed on a scroll, which is being held by two naked figures, each with a leg in the mouth of a dragon.

"L'om po fare die in pensar E vega quelo che gli po inchontrar" (Man can do and say as he thinks, and then he can see what will happen to him). The inscription may date back to the late 13th century, but the sentiment expressed is timeless.
