Cotonea.

The quince

Poma novis tribui debere Cydonia nuptis
Dicitur antiquus constituisse Solon.[1]
Grata ori & stomacho cým sint, ut & halitus illis
Sit suavis, blandus manet & ore lepos.

Solon of old is said to have ordained that quinces be given to newly-weds, since these are pleasant both to mouth and stomach. As a result their breath is sweet, and winning grace drops from their lips.

Notes:

1.antiquus...Solon, ‘Solon of old’. See Plutarch, Coniugalia praecepta, Moralia 138 D.

ELCE.

Holm-oak.


Chi voul l’Elce piegar, per esser dura,
Si rompe e spezza: cosi alcun Signore
Mentre d’esser severo ha troppa cura,
E punir aspramente il popol suole,
Pon la discordia, e la concordia fura,
Contrario effetto a quel che brama e vuole;
Che non offende alturi cosi la legge,
Quanto la leggerezza di chi regge.
