Commentary on Emblem 183

This emblem first appeared in an edition of Paris: Wechel 1542 (with the facing page translation of Wolfgang Hunger) as emblem 115 (page 252), a late addition to the first sequence (that began with the editions of 1531 and 1534). It was also placed in Alciato's second collection, the edition of 1546 -- we give the illustration which first appeared on folio 6r.
