Inscription from the Poem by Horace
LOQUERIS
The translation is

With those that smile our face in smiles appears;
With those that weep, we burst into tears.
If you wish me to weep,
you yourself must first feel grief
So I shall feel your sorrows like my own
O Peleus or Telephus!
But if your language is not suitable
for the circumstances I’ll sleep or smile
