Ensuicte dissemblable.[1]

Le Milan suist la Harpe en hault volant,[2]
Part à la proye avoir (qui chet) voulant:
Et le Sarget,[3] le mulet Marin suyvre
En mer on voit: pour de son reste vivre,
Avec moy faict Oenocrat le pareil,
Duquel la court Borgne use pour clair oeil.

Cest Embleme est contre quelque Docteur concur
rent à Alciat: lequel n’avoit auditeurs sinon le reste,
des escholiers laisséz par ledict Alciat: Et le nomme
Oenocrat, c’est a dire. Fort en vin, ou bon beuveur. Le
notant d’yvroignerie.
