Pour celluy qui ne scet flater.

Veulx tu savoir, Pourquoy c’est que Thessaille
D’ung duc, à aultre, ainsi souvent tressaille?
(C’est qu’a flater elle n’ha point apprins ce,
Lequel vice est en toute court de Prince,
Mais comme ung noble, & bon cheval, met bas
Son chevaucheur qui regir ne scet pas)[1]
Point toutesfois cruel ne soit le maistre,
Ung mors plus dur pour vengence doibt estre.

Les rebellions populaires viennent par
mauvaise administration des Princes.

Notes:

1.  See Plato, Politicus 261d for the image of the ruler as supervisor of a stud of horses.

COMMENTARIA.

Notes:

1.  Faunus is here equated with Pan, the half-goat rustic god ([A56a277]), accredited with the invention of the horn or military trumpet, and responsible for unexplained ‘panic’ terrors seizing man and beast, especially on the battle-field and in wild lonely places. See Erasmus, Adagia 2603, Panicus casus.
