Concordia insuperabilis.

Concord is insuperable

XVIII.

Tergeminos inter fuerat concordia fratres,
Tanta simul pietas mutua, & unus amor:
Invicti humanis ut viribus ampla tenerent
Regna, uno dicti nomine Geryonis.[1]

There was concord between triplet brothers, such mutual care, one love between them all; and so, unconquerable by human force, they held wide realms and were called by the one name of Geryones.

Notes:

1.  This is a rationalisation of Geryones, the unconquerable giant with three heads or three bodies, who dwelt on the island Erytheia of the mythic Hesperides, eventually vanquished and killed by Hercules during his abduction of Geryones’ famous cattle. See Emblem 225 ([A56a225]).

    Das XXVI.

    Einigkeit ist unuberwindtlich.

    Die Brüder so drey Zwilling
    Lebten mit einander eining
    Ir [=In] solcher lieb, gunst und freundtschafft
    Sie gegn einander warn verhafft
    Das sie regierten also zgleich
    Ohn widerstandt ir eigen Reich
    Wurden auch nur mit eim namen gnennt
    Geryon, dabey man sie kennt.
