CONCORDIA INSUPE-
rabilis.

Concord is insuperable

Emblema. 40.

Tergeminos inter fuerat concordia fratres,
Tanta simul pÓetas mutua, & unus amor.
Invicti humanis ut viribus ampla tenerent
Regna, uno dicti nomine Geryonis.[1]

There was concord between triplet brothers, such mutual care, one love between them all; and so, unconquerable by human force, they held wide realms and were called by the one name of Geryones.

Notes:

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 137 ([A15a136]).
