El buen cibdadano.

Ottava rhima.

Mientras que Trasybulo[1] anda vengando
Su patria, y manda que ninguno siga
En tiempo alguno enemistad ̣ bando,
La orden popular entre si amiga
De oliva una corona le està dando
En recompensa de su gran fatiga.
Solo se Trasybulo coronado,
Que nadie en la cibdad te es comparado.

Notes:

1.  Thrasybulus of Steiria, after a distinguished military career, was instrumental in liberating Athens from the tyranny of the Thirty in the political confusion at the end of the fourth century BC. For his own moderation and his resistance to vengeful acts by others in the ensuing settlement, see Cornelius Nepos, Life of Thrasybulus 3.2-3. According to Nepos (ibid. 4.3) Thrasybulus interpreted the olive-wreath freely offered him by the citizens as a sign that he was held in supreme honour by them.

El repentino espanto.

TERCETO.

Viendo yr un esquadron desbaratado,
Quien toca mi bozina? Fauno[1] dixo,
En velle tan sin causa alborotado.

Notes:

1.  Pan, the half-goat rustic god (see [A49a189]), 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.
