In subitum terrorem.

Sudden terror

EMBLEMA CXXII.

Effuso cernens fugientes agmine turmas,
Quis mea nunc inflat cornua? Faunus[1] ait.

Seeing the squadrons fleeing, their line in disarray, ‘Who now’, said Faunus, ‘is sounding my trumpets?’

Notes:

1.  Faunus is here equated with Pan, the half-goat rustic god (see [A91a097]), 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.

In coloro, che lodano le cose, che non meritano laude.

On those who praise things that do not deserve praise.


Con poca essendo e male armata gente
Ruppe Antiocho più torme, c’havea inanti:
Non già perche foss’ei troppo possente,
Ma per aiuto sol de gli Helephanti.
Onde fatto un Thropheo, subitamente
A un Pittor, che teneva i primi vanti,
Fe dipinger la bestia: e disse, quanto
Fu il vincer buon, me ne vergogno tanto.
