Quandary Resolution 2893
paleography, quotidian, nictitate, decollete
It was far from a quotidian occurrence - in the days when I was engaged upon paleographic research - to come across an inscription detailing a courtesan's generously plunging d├ęcolletage - but there was no mistaking the text, which even referred to the girl enticing her prospect with a calculatedly seductive nictitation of the left eyelid and a lascivious licking of the lips.
