Ottava rhima.

L. Quien yaze aqui dentro esta sepultura?
A. Lais que natural de Corintho era.

Tanta beldad que a’l Sol escurešiera?
A. Ya estava fea con la ędad madura.
L. Y esta Leona? A. muestra la ramera
Ansi tener Ó el amador prendido
Como de aquesta estÓ el carnero assido.

In subitum terrorem.

Sudden terror

EMBLEMA CXXII.

Effuso cernens fugientes agmine turmas,
Quis mea nunc inflat cornua? Faunus[1] ait.

Seeing the squadrons fleeing, their line in disarray, ‘Who now’, said Faunus, ‘is sounding my trumpets?’

Notes:

1. áFaunus is here equated with Pan, the half-goat rustic god (see [A91a097]), accredited with the invention of the horn or military trumpet, and responsible for unexplained ‘panic’ terrors seizing man and beast, especially on the battle-field and in wild lonely places. See Erasmus, Adagia 2603, Panicus casus.
