El Membrillo.

SEMIOTTAVA.

Precepto de Solon fu que la esposa
El membrillo por don se presentasse,
Por ser muy sana fruta y deleytosa,
Y que en la boca suave olor dexasse.[1]

Notes:

1. See Plutarch, Coniugalia praecepta, Moralia 138 D.

Ilex.

The holm-oak

EMBLEMA CCVI.

Duritie 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.

Notes:

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