Que uno vale nada, y dos mucho.

Ottava rhima.

El hijo de Laerte, y el de Tydeo á[M]
Por la mano de Zenalo esculpidos.[1]
De ellos el uno fue (segun que leo)
Fuerte, y el otro de claros sentidos.[2]
Mas aunque unico ser cada qual veo,
Para venšer bien es que esten u˝idos,
Y si ansi es, cierta la vittoria sale,
Lo que ingenio ni fuerša por si vale.

[Marginalia - link to text]Ulysses y Diomedes.

Notes:

1. áTwo unidentified busts signed by Zenas are in the Capitoline Museum in Rome. Two sculptors of the second, or third century AD, possibly father and son, are known by this name.

2. áOdysseus and Diomedes collaborated in a successful night raid raid into Troy, for which see Homer, Iliad 10.218ff. See further Erasmus, Adagia 2051, Duobus pariter euntibus. (This title translates Iliad 10.224.
