FOLLIE.

Fureur, & rage.

En l’escu est un Lyon en fureur.
Autour escript. Des hommes la terreur.
Armes jadis telles avec l’Aenigme
Agamennon porta le magnanime.[1]

Icy sont notez les cruelz gens de guerre: qui leur fu-
rieuse, & enragée cruaulté tesmoignent par les cruel-
les bestes, & divises blasonnées en leurs escuz.

Notes:

1.  This poem is based on Pausanias, Periegesis, 5.19.4. For the ‘raging lion’. Cf. Emblem 58,‘Ira’ ([[FALb058]). For Agamemnon’s savage temper, see e.g. Homer, Iliad, 1.103-4.
