Que con consejo se vencen los mas fuertes
y enga˝adores.

OTTAVA ACEPHALA.

Como Bellerophon, gran cavallero
Subiendo en el cavallo que bolava á[M]
La Chimera venši˛,[1] ansi tu entero
Animo en la virtud, los males lava
De los sobervios monstros d’esta vida, á[M]
Con el consejo hasta el cielo subida.

Notes:

1. áThe King of Lycia imposed on Bellerophon, among other tasks, that of killing the Chimaera, a fire-breathing monster with a lion’s head, serpent’s tail and goat’s body. He achieved this last with the aid of the winged horse Pegasus, which Athena, goddess of wisdom, helped him to catch.
