The Archipriest of Hita falls back on the elegiac comedy in order to create the fourteen love story adventures where he plays the main part. Furthermore, he takes some material from the elegiac comedy which he uses in some of his most significant digressions. Thus, he uses De Paullino et Polla and De more medicorum to introduce an extensive speech about the power of money. Likewise the Archipriest develops some suggestions concerning the abuse of wine as a reminder of its most specific properties in agreement with the Regimina sanitatis.
