LIBER QVINTVS        159

egit, vetustos continentiæ mores imitans: ac rusticioris escæ paratum appetens, cœnæRusticior esca.
sumptuosioris impendium fastidivit. Igitur profusam dapum indulgentiam aspernatus,
fumidoque, ac rancido cibo vsus, famem eo sapidius, quo simplicius pepulit, Sapidius quo simplicius.
ne veræ virtutis nervos externarum delicarum contagione, tanquam adulterino
quodam dulcore remitteret, aut priscæ frugalitatis normam inusitatis gulæ superstitionibus
abrogaret. Cæterum indignanter ferebat assam dapem, eandemque elixam, Assa daps vel elixa.
vnius cœnæ sumptibus erogari: edulium pro monstro accipiens: quod culinæ
nidoribus delibutum, fartoris industria multiplicis temperamenti varietate perfricuit. Fartor.
Igitur vt Danicum luxum, Teutonum ritu (vnde effœminati fierent ) introductum, Teutonicus ritus.
averteret, inter alia patrio carmine, multis dimissis, sic cecinit:
        Fortium crudus cibus est virorum: Carmina Starchateri de frugalitate.
        Nec reor lautis opus esse mensis,
        Mens quibus belli meditantur vsum
                        Pectore forti.
        Aptius barbam poteras rigentem
        Mordicus presso lacerare dente,
        Quam vorax lactis vacuare sinum
                        Ore capaci.
        Fugimus lautæ vitium popinæ,
        Rancidis ventrem dapibus soventes.
        Coctiles paucis placuere succi
                        Tempore prisco.
        Discus herbosi vacuus saporis,
        Arietum carnes dabat, & suillas.
        Temperans vsus nihil immodesto
                        Polluit ausu.
        Lacteum qui nunc adipem ligurris,
        Induas mentem petimus virilem:
        Esto Frothonis memor, & paterni
                        Funeris vltor.
        Occidet nequam, pavictumque pectus:
        Nec fugax fati stimulum refellet,
        Valle condatur licet, aut opacis
                        Incubet antris.
        Vndecim quondam proceres eramus
        Regis Hachonis studium secuti.
        Hic prior Helgo Begathus resedit
                        Ordine cœnæ:
        Hic famis primæ stimulum licebat
        Aridis pernæ natibus levare:
        Ventris ardorem rigidi domabat
                        Copia crusti.
        Offulam nemo vapidam petebat:
        Quisque communes celebrabat escas:
        Simplici tantum stetit apparatu
                        Cœna potentum.
        Vulgus externum fugiebat esum:
        Nec fuit summis epuli libido:
        Ipse Rex paruo meminit modestam
                        Ducere vitam:
