EMBLEMA CLXXXIII [=182] .

Malè parta malè dilabuntur.[1]

Ill gotten, ill spent

Miluus edax[2] nimiae quem nausea torserat esce,
Hei mihi mater ait, viscera ab ore fluunt.

Qui rapto vivens sola aliena vomis?

A voracious kite, which had eaten too much, was racked with vomiting. ‘O dear, mother’, it said, ‘entrails are pouring out of my mouth.’ She however replied: ‘What are you crying about? Why do you think these are your entrails? You live by plunder and vomit only what belongs to others.’

Das CLXXXIII [=182] .

Ubel gewunnen ubel verthan.

Ein fressiger Weyh auff ein zeit
Wider gab das er vor mit geit
Eingewirckt hett, sprach: Mutter mein
All mein inners wil hrauß mit pein.
Die Mutter sprach: Was weinstu sehr?
Woltst wehn das diß dein ingweid wer?
Das du mit der Speiß heraus gülffst
Der du dich nur deß Raubs behilffst.

Notes:

1.  The title is proverbial. See Cicero, Philippics, 2.65.

2.  ‘A voracious kite’. The kite was a figure of greed and extortion.
