“melius vita quae priscos colat”

A tip of the biretta to the Laudator:

Seneca, Phaedra 483-485 (tr. John G. Fitch):

No other life is more free and blameless,
or better cherishes the ancient ways,
than that which abandons city walls and loves the forests.

non alia magis est libera et vitio carens
ritusque melius vita quae priscos colat,
quam quae relictis moenibus silvas amat.

    You have to include “ritusque” to make sense.
