Picea.

The spruce tree

Emblema ccii.

At picea emittat nullos quòd stirpe stolones,
Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

But the spruce, because it sends up no shoots from its stock, is a symbol of the man who dies without progeny.

PIcea facilè potest eum significare, qui sine liberis
decedit. Aut referetur ad eum qui nullum sui mo-
nimentum reliquerit, cuius nempe vita ac mors iux-
tà aestimatur, ut ait Sallustius.

Le pin.

DU Pin, quoy que grand, on peut voir
Ne sortir rejets de racine:
Ce que pourra estre le signe
D’un qui meurt sans enfans avoir.

LE Pin peust representer celuy qui dece-
de sans enfans. Ou sera prins pour quel-
cun qui ne laisse point de memoire de soy,
assavoir duquel en la vie & la mort on ne
parle point, comme dit Salluste.

MALUS MEDICA.

The citron

Emblema. 205.

Aurea sunt veneris poma haec: iucundus amaror
Indicat, est Graecis glycypicros amor.[1]

These golden fruits belong to Venus: the sweet bitterness tells us that. Even so is love glukupikros for the Greeks.

Notes:

1.  γλυκύπικρος, ‘bitter-sweet’, a concept often applied to Love in Hellenistic epigrams. See Emblem 110 ([A15a110]).
