VICES

Contre victoire acquise par fraude.

Prosopopoeie.

Sur le tombeau d’Ajax, je vertu pleure,
Ayant rompu ma blanche cheveleure.
Cela restoit que fusse condamnée
Par Juges Grecz,[1] Fraude pour droict donnée.

Par les traistres, & faulx Juges, le bon droict est ren
versé, & le tort exaulcé. Comme au proces des
armes d’Achilles, entre Ajax, & Ulysses, adjugées
à celuy auquel point n’appartenoyent.

Notes:

1.  The Greek assembly awarded the arms of the dead Achilles to the cunning and eloquent Ulysses, not the brave and straight-forward Ajax. For Ajax’ subsequent suicide, see [A58a027].

Contra los engañadores.

SEMIOTTAVA.

Aquella lagartija que es llamada
Stellio,[1] es d’el engaño conocida
Señal, y de la invidia en si dañada,
De las zelosas nueras bien sabida.

Notes:

1.  Stellio, ‘the starred gecko’. See Ovid, Metamorphoses, 5.461 for the explanation of the name stellio.
