Alciato's Book of Emblems
One ought to beware of prostitutes
It is said the powers of Circe, offspring to the Sun, were so great that she turned many men into strange monsters. Picus, tamer of horses, is proof, likewise biform Scylla, and the Ithacans, pigs after they drank the wine. Circe, by her famous name, discloses the prostitute, and whoever loves her, loses the reason of his mind.
