tetrastichon.

Non hìc (perpetuò quae sunt mansura) trophaeis
Debent insculpi nomina vana Ducum:
Sed potiùs quorum victoria sanguine fuso
Parta fuit, fuerunt nomina digna legi.

quatrain.

Par maint trophée ont acquis grand renom
Princes et Roys (le fait mal entendu)
Car de ceux là y d’eust estre le nom,
Qui au conflit ont leur sang espandu.
