Alciato's Book of Emblems

Emblem 14

The Chimaera (those who are stronger and deceptive) to be overcome by judgment and courage

As the courageous horseman Bellerophon was able to overcome the Chimaera and slay the monsters of the Lycian land, so you, carried on Pegasean wings, seek the heavens, and by the judgment of your mind, subdue tyrannical monsters.
