According to Osanna –

below the sentimental well-known graffito, seen above, Amantes ut apes vitam melitam exigent.” (Lovers, like bees, make life as sweet as honey) was the word “Velle” which he translates as “Mi piacerebbe” (it would please me!). This was written by a second (more sceptical) person, adding a sympathetic comment.
