tetrastichon.

Dum simul in medio contendunt aequore nautae,
Hos niger insanis obruit Auster[1] aquis:
Sic perdit miseros serpens discordia cives,
Corruit urbsque suo maxima saepe malo.

While two sailors fight in the midst of the sea, black Auster crushes them with raving waters. So discord, creeping, destroys poor citizens, and the greatest city falls often by her own evil.

quatrain.

Pendant que sont les nauchers contendans,
La nef perist par tempeste & naufrage:
Pendant que sont entre soy discordans
Les Cytoyens, ilz sont mys en servage.

Notes:

1.  Auster: the South Wind (as is Notus in the previous emblem).
