EMBLEMA XIII.

Solvuntur compacta licet bene dolia, firmis
Constricta ni sint circulis.
Sic legum poenis quae non firmata tènetur,
Corruat oportet civitas.

Well formed barrels [lit. jars] may break apart if they are not bound round with strong hoops. In the same way people/the state who are not held firm by the punishments of laws must fall.
