Picea.

The spruce tree

XXXV.

At picea emittas nullos quòd stirpe stolones,
Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

But the spruce, because it sends up no shoots from its stock, is a symbol of the man who dies without progeny.

    Ilex.

    The holm-oak

    Duritiae nimia[1] quod sese rumperet Ilex,
    Symbola civilis seditionis habet.

    Because the holm-oak splits spontaneously through excessive inflexibility, it provides symbols for civic discord.

    Das CCXVI [=211] .

    Stein Eich.

    Notes:

    1.  Duritie nimia, ‘excessive inflexibility’. Cf. Pliny, Natural History, 16.73.186 (tota ossea est ilex, ‘the holm-oak is entirely bone-like’).
