PAX.

Peace

Turrigeris humeris, dentis quoque barrus eburni,
Qui superare ferox Martia bella solet,
Supposuit nunc colla iugo: stimulisque subactus,
Caesareos currus ad pia templa vehit.
Vel fera cognoscit concordes undique gentes.
Proiectisque armis munia pacis obit.[1]

The elephant, with its tower-bearing shoulders and ivory tusk, a beast accustomed to dominate the conflicts of Mars with savage ravings, has now submitted its neck to the yoke: subdued by goads, it draws Caesar’s chariot to the holy temples. Even the beast recognises nations reconciled on every side, and rejecting the weapons of war, it performs the duties of peace.

Notes:

1. áThis is translated from Anthologia graeca 9.285, which refers to an occasion under the Emperor Tiberius when the statue of the Deified Augustus was for the first time borne in procession in a chariot drawn by elephants.

Do not hope for what is not allowed

Spes simul & Nemesis nostris altaribus adsunt,
Scilicet ut speres non nisi quod liceat.

Hope and Retribution stand together beside the altar I have built, to ensure that you hope only for that which is allowed.

Nicht unbillichs zu hoffen.

LXXIX.

Hoffnung, und die gottin der Rhach,
Auff einn altar zusam gestelt,
Leren das man nit hoffe nach
Dan was zimlich, und Got gefelt:
Verhoffst on recht guet oder gelt,
Versich dich gwiser rew und straff,
Sey hye oder in jhener welt,
Wie unn▀ taeglich predigt der pfaff.
