Emblema 160.

Bina pericla unis effugi sedulus armis,
Cum premererque solo, cum premererque salo.
Incolumem ex acie clypeus me praestiti, idem
Navifragum apprensus littora ad usque tulit.[1]

Double danger have I escaped by careful use of one set of arms, when I was hard-pressed on dry land and when I was in dire straits amidst the swelling billows. My shield brought me safe from the battle. The same shield, when I seized it, carried me, ship-wrecked, right to the shore.
