SECURITAS.

A SENSE OF SECURITY

Pastor utramque Iupi [=lupi] securus dormit in aurem[1]
C¨m vigiles ovibus sentit adesse canes.
Dulcia sic Princeps positis agit otia curis,
C¨m fidos populo praeposuit Satrapas.

The shepherd, not bothering about the wolf, sleeps on either ear when he knows his vigilant dogs are with the flock. Just so, the Prince puts aside his cares and lives a life of leisure when he has appointed faithful satraps to watch over the people.

Notes:

1. áThis expression means ‘to be free from care’.
