La concordia insuperable.

OTTAVA ACEPHALA.

En tanta piedad fueron u˝idos
Y en tanto amor aquellos tres hermanos
Que jamas siendo de alguno venšidos,
Sus reynos uvon [=fueron] tan libres y sanos
Que siendo tres un nombre merešieron
Y ansÝ Geryon tres llamados fueron.[1]

Notes:

1. áThis is a rationalisation of Geryones, the unconquerable giant with three heads or three bodies, who dwelt on the island Erytheia of the mythic Hesperides, eventually vanquished and killed by Hercules during his abduction of Geryones’ famous cattle. See Emblem 139 ([A49a139]).
