Commentary on Emblem 85

This emblem first appeared in Alciato's second collection, the edition of 1546. We give the illustration which first appeared on folio 36r.

Geffrey Whitney's Choice of Emblemes (1586) has an English imitation at page 74. You may compare the Latin and Whitney's English in frames.
