Bonte des enfans envers leurs
Peres, ou Meres.

PROSOPOPOEIE.

Quand Aeneas portoit hors de peril
Son pere. Aulx Graecz pardonnez. (disoit il)
Gloire n’aurez ung vieil à mort livré.
Grand gloire auray mon pere delivré.[1]

A ung filz est grand honneur de rendre ou sau-
ver la vie, à celluy duquel il tient la vie apres
Dieu, (qui est son Pere) Qui est le meilleur, & plus
louable acte que jamais feit Aeneas.

Notes:

1.  This is based on Anthologia graeca 9.163, a much translated epigram. It refers to the celebrated incident of Aeneas’ rescue of his old father at the sack of Troy, carrying him on his shoulders through the occupied and burning city. See Vergil, Aeneid 2.634ff.
