De saxis gigantum , & scaturigine fontium


CAP. XXXII.



                                        QVEMADMODVM superius lib.I dictum est de obeliscis
                                        gentilium,Regum,pugilum,&gigantum,quibus gesta eorum
                                        magnifica putabant fieri notissima perpetuæ posteritati,
Saxo.                                        prout Saxo Sialandicus meminit de suo Regnero Danorum Rege,
Regnerus Rex Danorum.                                        qui quinquennali prælio contra Moscos,Russosque in Aquilone
                                        commisso,res gestas reliquerit in rupibus altis,ne oblivione
                                        evanesceret,quod tot angustiis, & difficultatibus pro claritudine
Gothorum reges rebus præclare gestis clarverunt.                                        honoris sui perpetrasset: Ita et de compluribus Gothorum,
                                        Sueonumque Regibus,ac heroicis viris : quorum adhuc
magnitudo gestorum discernitur in eminentissimis locis Septentrionalium regionum.
Inter quos præclarioris memoriæ recensentur,&æstimantur,qui curam bellicæ gloriæ
Vbbo,& Scarinus, ac Ericus reges.sic moderati sunt,vt publicæ omnium commoditati profuisse viderentur:qualis erat excellentissimus
ille Rex Vbbo conditor antiquissimæ civitatis Vpsalensis, atque Scarinus,
et Ericus cum plerisque aliis:quorum indelebilis memoria nedum in saxis campestribus,
Carminibus patriis memoria manet.aut montanis conscripta videtur,sed patriis carminibus, ac musicis instrumentis
celebrioribus locis,ac diebus sempiternis tripudiis continuatur. Horum nanque fidelior
cura suit provincialibus præsectis(pace vbique data) committere,yt præter arma etiam
venarum scaturigines præcipiti casu labentes, incolarum ministerio subderent molendinis,
aut necessariis fontibus ad publicam vtilitatem vbilibet construendis. Manant
insuper ex rupibus multis in locis tam abundantes,& copiosi latices, vt naturæ, artisquæ
agilitate deducti longo, sed pulcherrimo aspectu XV. aut XXX. aquea molendina
Falonia.revoluant . Falonia Vesgothorum nobilis provincia ,ac populosa Helsingia,
Helsingia.prout inferius de ferrariis artificibus ostendetur, talia , tamquæ commoda spectacula
Aquæ defectu pereunt animalia in Africa.monstrant.Nec opus est ab partibus Africanis, vbi aquarum penuria plurimæ creaturæ
periclitantur,ad has frigidas regiones advocare peritos aquæductores, eo quod & nix
perpetua ,& amnes ,ac fontes innumerabiles vbique reperiantur : immo & homines
naturæ indiciis tam sagaces,vt in superficie terræ infallibiliter prædicere valeant, quot
vlnis , aut brachiis , seu pedibus suffossa terra effundet aquas , quorsumquæ venæ curvantur ,
aut currunt.
