Contra los avarientos. ˛. De los que son mejor
tratados de los estra˝os que de los suyos.

Ottava rhima.

Passando el mar Arion asentado
Sobre el Delphin que de la indi˝a muerte
Le libertˇ, siendo en el mar echado
Cantˇ con voz suave d’esta suerte.[1]
De mas cruel ingenio estÓ dotado
Un avariento que una fiera fuerte,
Pues fiera libertˇ ß quien hombre mata
Y ß quien at˛ de la prision desata.


1. áThe crew of the ship on which the celebrated musician Arion was travelling, after robbing him, prepared to throw him overboard. He persuaded them to allow him to play his lyre for the last time. Then, after invoking the gods, he jumped into the sea, whereupon a music-loving dolphin conveyed him to land. See Aulus Gellius, Noctes Atticae 16.19.
