Que aun los ferocissimos se doman.

Ottava rhima.

Despues que Antonio con la indina muerte  [M]
De Tullio[1], hizo perderse la eloquençia
Queriendo sublimar su fęliz suerte
Subiò en un carro, lleno de insolençia,
Uñendo la fiereza del leon fuerte,[2]
Por declarar como a su violençia
Dieron lugar los grandes caballeros
Hechos à fuerza de armas prisioneros.

[Marginalia - link to text]Marco Antonio.

Notes:

1.  Cicero was considered Rome’s greatest orator - his name was held by many to be synonymous with eloquence itself; see Quintilian, Institutio oratoria 10.1.112. Mark Antony had Cicero murdered in 43 BC in revenge for his scathing attacks in the fourteen ‘Philippic’ orations. See Seneca the Elder, Suasoriae 6.17.

2.  Cf. Pliny, Natural History 8.21.55: Antony was the first to yoke lions to a chariot in Rome...by this unnatural sight giving people to understand that noble spirits were at that time bowing to the yoke.

Sur l’Alliance des Italiens.

Apostrophe.

Ce Lucz formé comme nef piscantine
Propre pour soy prend la Muse Latine
Pren (Duc) ce don, qui te plaise en ce temps
Que commencer alliance pretendz.
Difficile est tant de chordes estendre
