Las armas de los fuertes.

Dialogo. Lettor. Aguila.

Ottava rhima.

L. A’l hijo de Saturno ave sagrada  [M]
Que causa (di) basṭ para moverte
A estar sobre Aristomenes sentada?[1]
A. Digo que como yo soy la mas fuerte
Entre las aves, ansi à este es dada
De los heroas la mas alta suerte.
De los cobardes las palomas sean
Armas, mas yo de los que bien pelean.

[Marginalia - link to text]Aguila consegrada à Juppiter.

Notes:

1.  Aristomenes was a Messenian hero of the seventh century BC, of semi-divine origin, who performed incredible exploits while leading his country for many years in resistance to the Spartans. On one occasion an eagle aided his miraculous escape from captivity.
