Par le vin, Prudence est agumentée.[1]


On voit ensemble en ce temple habiter
Bacchus. Pallas, enfans de Jupiter.
L’un de la cuysse, & l’aultre du chef née:[2]
L’un ha le vin: l’autre l’huyle donnée.
Bien sont conjoinctz, Car, Qui fuit le vin bon
N’ha par Pallas de prudence le don.

Pallas est Deesse des bons espritz, & Bacchus des
bons vins, L’un & l’autre est donné de Dieu. Et le
bon vin faict le bon esprit.


1.  This emblem uses material from Anthologia Graeca, 16.183, concerning a statue of Bacchus beside one of Pallas Athene.

2.  For the birth of Pallas Athene from the head of Jove and of Bacchus from his thigh, see emblems 1 ([A58a001]), and 25 ([A58a025]). Pallas is the virgin goddess, patroness of intellectual pursuits, who presented Athens with the gift of the olive tree. Bacchus discovered the vine during his wanderings about the earth and taught men its use. He also introduced various other features of civilisation.
