Commentary on Emblem 187

The emblem is based on an epigram in the Greek Anthology 9.366.

This emblem first appeared in Alciato's second collection, the edition of 1546. We give the illustration which first appeared on folio 32r.

Geffrey Whitney's Choice of Emblemes (1586) has an English imitation at page 130. You may compare the Latin and Whitney's English in frames.
