Concorde insuperable.

Si grand concorde, & foy entre trois freres,
Si grand amour fut en tous leurs affaires,
Qu’ilz furent Roys vinqueurs, & vincus non.
Tous trois nomméz Geryon, d’un seul nom.[1]

Concorde faict une union tresforte,
& invincible, de plusieurs foibles,
chascun à part soy.


1.  This is a rationalisation of Geryones, the unconquerable giant with three heads or three bodies, who dwelt on the island Erytheia of the mythic Hesperides, eventually vanquished and killed by Hercules during his abduction of Geryones’ famous cattle. See Emblem 130 CHECK([A58a130]).
