Emblema. 21.

Iam dudum quacunque fugis, te persequor: at[1] nunc
Cassibus in nostris denique captus ades.
Amplius haud poteris vires illudere nostras:
Ficulno anguillam strinximus in folio.[2]

For a long time now I have been pursuing you wherever you flee; but now you are here, at long last caught in our net. You will no longer be able to violate our power - we have gripped the eel tight in a fig-leaf.


1. áCorrected from the Errata.

2. áThe rough surface of the fig-leaf made it suitable for gripping slippery objects. See Erasmus, Adagia 395, Folio ficulno tenes anguillam.
