Ensuycte dissemblable.

Le Milan suict la harpe en hault volant,[1]
Part à la proye avoir (qui chet) voulant:
Et le Sarget,[2] le mulet Marin suyvre
En mer on voit: pour de son reste vivre,
Avec moy faict Oenocrat le pareil,
Duquel la court Borgne use pour clair oeil.

Cest Embleme est contre quelque Docteur con
current à Alciat: lequel n’avoit auditeurs sinon
le reste, des escholiers laisséz par ledict Alciat:
Et le nomme Oenocrat, c’est a dire. Fort en
vin, ou bon beuveur. Le notant d’yvroignerie.
