Contra los que à mas que sus fuerças
bastan se atreven.

Ottava rhima.

Durmiendo estava Alcides recreando  [M]
Con sueño el cuerpo en baxo de un gran pino
A elqual la gente Pygmęa[1] (pensando
Poder matarle) en tanto desatino
Le acometió: que Alcides recordando
(D’el alboroto no perdiendo el tino)
Con sola su pelleja[2] la maltrata
Como quien con las uñas pulgas mata.

Notes:

1.  Hercules’ confrontation with the pygmies is described by Philostratus, Eikones 2.22.

2.  The skin of the Nemean lion which Hercules always wore after slaying the beast. (See [A49a139], notes; [A49a093]).
