Commentary on Emblem 168

The emblem is based on an epigram in the Greek Anthology 7.152.

First published in the first authorized edition of 1534. The illustration appears on page 119.

There is a French translation of this emblem by Lefevre, conventionally numbered 113 in the unpaged edition of Paris: Wechel, 1536 at the Glasgow University emblem site. You may compare the Latin and French in frames.

Geffrey Whitney's Choice of Emblemes (1586) has an English imitation at page 37. You may compare the Latin and Whitney's English in frames.
