Ilex.

The holm-oak

Emblema ccv.

Duritie nimia[1] qud sese rumperet ilex,
Symbola civilis seditionis habet.

Because the holm-oak splits spontaneously through excessive inflexibility, it provides symbols for civic discord.

ILex eos refert qui sunt tumultuosi, spectata nimi-
rum arboris natura, cuius lignum cm frangi nisi
admodum difficulter possit, se tamen aliquando dif-
findit & fatiscit: Ita seditio si non nisi seipsis fer
avelluntur & franguntur.

Le Suse.

LE Suse dur & astraint
De soy se rompt & contraint
Jusqu’ se fendre soy-mesme:
Le trouble civil de fait
De soy-mesme se deffait
Par desordre & fin extreme.

LE Suse ou Roure est la marque des tu-
multueux, en consideration que cest ar-
bre a le bois si fort que bien difficille-
ment il se peut rompre, mais il se rompt &
esclatte luy-mesme par fois: ainsi les sedi-
tieux ne sont aucunefois travaillez & rom-
pus sinon par eux-mesmes.

Notes:

1. Duritie nimia, ‘excessive inflexibility’. Cf. Pliny, Natural History, 16.73.186 (tota ossea est ilex, ‘the holm-oak is entirely bone-like’).

Venus est Princesse, laquelle aussi fut par Paris ad
