La paz.

Ottava rhima.

El elephante que vençer solia
Las guerras con las torres guarneçidas
De gente que en batallas el traia,
Sometiò a’l jugo sus fuerças rendidas
Y lleva armas d'el Cęsar à la pia  [M]
Yglesia, y da de paz nuevas complidas,
Por dar nos à entender como aun los brutos
Ven de la paz seguirse grandes frutos.[1]

[Marginalia - link to text]Julio Cesar.

Notes:

1.  This is based on 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.
