EMBLEMA XXXI.

Marmoreae in tumulis una stat parte columnae
Urceus, ex alia cernere malluvium est.
Ius haec forma monet dictum sine sordibus esse,
Defunctum puras atque habuisse manus.

On a tomb, at one side of the marble pillar, stands a water-jug, at the other you can see a basin. This design tells us that justice was pronounced without corruption, and that the deceased kept his hands clean.
