A Proverb

Terence, Phormio 318 (tr. Betty Radice):
It's your cooking, you must eat it.

tute hoc intristi, tibi omnest exedendum.
intristi (intrivisti) = 2nd person singular perfect active indicative of intero ("to rub into fragments, crumble up," Oxford Latin Dictionary, sense 1.b).

Donatus ad loc. (vol. II, p. 427 Wessner):
παροιμία apta parasito, quia de cibo est.
A proverb suited to a parasite, since it's about food.
