Abstinentia.

Integrity

Marmoreae in tumulis una stat parte columnae
Urceus, ex alia cernere malluvium est.
Ius haec forma monet dictum sine sordibus esse,
Defunctum puras atque habuisse manus.

On a tomb, at one side of the marble pillar, stands a water-jug, at the other you can see a basin. This design tells us that justice was pronounced without corruption, and that the deceased kept his hands clean.

ASTINENZA.

ABSTINENCE.


Qui il Principe si lava ambe le mani
Per demostrar, che chi governa e regge
Conven, c’habbia i pensier candidi e sani,
Perche non vada mai zoppa la legge,
Che, com’ella s’inchina e torce un poco,
HonestÓ, ne ragion non ha piu loco.
