Aiuto perpetuo.

Everlasting help.

Di duo perigli il buono e fido scudo
Serbato m’ha: di l’un mentr’era a fronte
E combattea col mio nemico crudo,
C’havrià; potuto uccider Rodomonte:[1]
L’altro, ch’in mar sendo sommerso e spinto,
Portommi al lido, ond’ho la morte vinto.


1.  Rodomonte is the felon par excellence. Here the sense is that a shield helped defeat an enemy so strong that he could have killed even Rodomonte.
