In garrulum & gulosum.

Against a noisy and gluttonous fellow

Voce boat torva, praelargo est gutture, rostrum
Instar habet nasi multiforisque tubae.
Deformem rabulam, addictum ventrique gulaeque
Signabit, volucer cum truo pictus erit.

It screams with a harsh cry, it has an enormous throat, a beak like a spout or a many-holed trumpet. The pelican bird, when painted, will indicate an ugly ranter, enslaved to lust and belly.

EMBLEMA CXXXIIII.

In desciscentes.

On those who turn traitor

Quod fine egregios turpi maculaveris orsus,
In noxamque tuum verteris officium,
Fecisti, quod capra, sui mulctraria lactis
Cum ferit, & proprias calce profundit opes.[1]

Because you have spoilt your fine beginnings with a shameful end and turned your service into harm, you have done what the she-goat does when she kicks the bucket that holds her milk and with her hoof squanders her own riches.

Das CXXXIIII.

Wider die so von irem ehrlichen Leben
abweichen.

Das du dein lblichen anfngn
Ein Schandtfleck und mal hat anghangn
Link to an image of this page Link to an image of this page [N4r f87r] Und hast dein ehrlichen standt gsetzt
In nachtheil schaden und verschetzt
Daran hastu wie die Gei thon
Die in Kbel mit Milch thut ston
Und verschtt also mit irm Fu
Ir eigen hab und uberflu.

Notes:

1. See Erasmus, Adagia, 920 (Capra Syria), where the goat - of Syros, in the Aegean, not Scyros (as in the commentary here) - is wild.
