Contra los avarientos. ò. De los que son mejor
tratados de los estraños que de los suyos.

Ottava rhima.

Passando el mar Arion asentado
Sobre el Delphin que de la indiña muerte
Le libertó, siendo en el mar echado
Cantó con voz suave d’esta suerte.[1]
De mas cruel ingenio està dotado
Un avariento que una fiera fuerte,
Pues fiera libertó á quien hombre mata
Y á quien atò de la prision desata.

Notes:

1.  The crew of the ship on which the celebrated musician Arion was travelling, after robbing him, prepared to throw him overboard. He persuaded them to allow him to play his lyre for the last time. Then, after invoking the gods, he jumped into the sea, whereupon a music-loving dolphin conveyed him to land. See Aulus Gellius, Noctes Atticae 16.19.
