Auxilium nunquam deficiens.

Help never failing

EMBLEMA CLXI.

Bina pericla unis effugi sedulus armis,
Cm premererque solo, cm premererque salo.
Incolumem ex acie clypeus me praestitit: idem
Navifragum apprensus littora adusque tulit.[1]

Double danger have I escaped by careful use of one set of arms, when I was hard-pressed on dry land and when I was in dire straits amidst the swelling billows. My shield brought me safe from the battle. The same shield, when I seized it, carried me, ship-wrecked, right to the shore.
