Alciato Emblem 33: Source in Greek Anthology 7.161
(trans Paton, II, 91)
Antipater of Sidon On Aristomenes, On Whose Tomb Stood an Eagle
"Fleet-winged bird of Zeus, why dost thou stand in splendour on
the tomb of great Aristomenes?" "I tell unto men that as I am
chief among the birds, so was he among the youth. Timid doves
watch over cowards, but we delight in dauntless men."
