EMBLEMA XI.

Abstinentia.

Integrity

Marmoreae in tumulis, una stat parte columnae
Urceus, ex alia cernere malluvium est
Ius haec forma monet dictum sine sordibus esse
Defunctum puras atque habuisse manus.

On a tomb, at one side of the marble pillar, stands a water-jug, at the other you can see a basin. This design tells us that justice was pronounced without corruption, and that the deceased kept his hands clean.

Das XI.

Abbruch.

Ein Krug gemacht au▀ Marmelstein
Steht wie ein Seul auff dem Eck ein
De▀ Steinern Tisch, auffm andern Eck
Aber findstu ston ein Handbeck
Di▀ bild ermannt das gschriben Recht
Sol rein seyn und on wandel schlecht
Und de▀ Richters Hend sollen seyn
Von allen miet und gaben rein.
