From Anthologia Latina 285:
From what I’ve read, this is not Gothic (goticum is just a general term), but the language of the Vandals, who are portrayed as enjoying eating and drinking (matzia ia drincan) at a convivium, but not poetry.
P.S. I like the metrical joke in the last line–the switch from hexameter to pentameter to complement the sense.
