La Enzina.

Ottava rhima.

Fuč querida de Juppiter la Enzina,
El qual ansi de aqui piensan llamarse,
Porque ą nuestro favor siempre se inclina.
De Enzina una corona solia darse
A quien en la batalla repentina
Librando un cibdadano pudo honrrarse.[1]
Y aunque aora solo por sombra aprovecha
Por eso Juppiter no la desecha.

Notes:

1.  ‘a crown of oak’, awarded for saving the life of a fellow-soldier; see Pliny, Natural History, 16.3.7.

Ilex.

The holm-oak

EMBLEMA CCVI.

Duritie nimia[1] quod sese rumperet Ilex,
Symbola civilis seditionis habet.

Because the holm-oak splits spontaneously through excessive inflexibility, it provides symbols for civic discord.

Notes:

1.  Duritie nimia, ‘excessive inflexibility’. Cf. Pliny, Natural History, 16.73.186 (tota ossea est ilex, ‘the holm-oak is entirely bone-like’).
