EMBLEMA CXXXVIII.

Furor & rabies.

Fury and madness

Ora gerit clypeus rabiosi picta leonis,
Et scriptum in summo margine carmen habet.
Hic hominum est terror, cuius possessor Atrida
Talia magnanimus signa Agamemno tulit.[1]

The shield bears the painted face of a raging lion, and inscribed upon the upper margin has a verse: ‘This is the terror of men, and the son of Atreus is its possessor’. Haughty Agamemnon bore this symbolic figure.

Das CXXXVIII.

Toben und wüten.

An dem schilt steht künstlich gemalt
Eins grausamen Löwens gestalt
An dem rand herumb aber man
Findet gschriben diesn Reymen stan
Dieser ist ein schrecken der Leut
Den tregt Atrides an der heut
Ein solch Wappen geführet hat
Der küne Agamemnon drat.

Notes:

1.  This poem is based on Pausanias, Periegesis, 5.19.4. For the ‘raging lion’. Cf. Emblem 142, ‘Ira’ ([A67a142]). For Agamemnon’s savage temper, see e.g. Homer, Iliad, 1.103-4.

    XLVIII.

    Il est sale & vilain & à faire & à dire
    De descharger son ventre en un vaisseau de prix.
    Adulteres, qui sont de feu damnable espris,
    Allans contre nature encourent de Dieu l’ire.
