A Liar and a Braggart

Plautus, The Braggart Soldier 21-23 (the parasite Artotrogus is the speaker, referring to the soldier Pyrgopolynices; tr. Paul Nixon):
If anyone ever saw a bigger liar
and more colossal braggart than this fellow,
he can have me for his own with full legal rights.

periuriorem hoc hominem si quis viderit
aut gloriarum pleniorem quam illic est,
me sibi habeto, ei ego me mancupio dabo.
