192        DE GIGANTIBVS


Septentrionales minus scribunt, & fortius agunt. laude prosecuti fuissent, si doctius scribere, quam fortius facere didicissent.
                                        Præmium periculosi duelli erant prima
                                        inter foites pugiles sedes: nuptiæ
                                        nacuius genetosæ, aut speciosæ virgiliis
Op um detestatio.                                         Opum vero summa detestatio in
                                        eis fuit, ne virtutem avaritiæ stipendiis
                                        obnoxiam fecisse viderentur: sed
                                        potius honestati intentos, quam quæstui
                                        deditos, pecuniæ cupiditati fortitudinem
Magnanimitas.                                         prætulisse monstrabant: gloriam
                                        non in pretio, sed magnanimitate
                                        repositam ostendentes. Nec semper
victis denegatus erat debitus honor: siquidem victores victos inferiis sæpe pro
Naturæ officia conciliant. sequebantur. Quamvis enim eos mentium discrimina separaverant, naturæ tamen
jura conciliabant: in quibus suprema humanitatis officia inesse rati, livorem fato,
simultatemque funere sopiebant: & quanquam vivis odium intercessisset, alter alterius
eineres prosequebatur. Gloriosum victori erat, victi funus magnifice ducere,
Studium humanitatis. extinctoque studium humanitatis impendere. Nec minus succurrendum putabant luctuosæ
calamitati, quæ vivos interdum damnata corporum parte contingere possit.
Quando enim incolumi spiritu membrorum clades pugnantibus incidit, læsio tot
auri talentis, quot inter pugiles conventum erat, sartiebatur. Enimuero talis fors omni
Mors. fato tristior ducebatur, quod mors omnium memoriam tolleret, vivens vero proprii
Cautela prudentissima contra duella. corporis stragem negligere nequiret. Cavendum tamen est ( referente Saxone
lib. IIII. )ne, dum vltionis effectum appetant in infirmas, & inopes virium manus
stulta secum audacia conserant, dumque alienum affectant exitum, proprium
experiantur occasum, optimæ indolis habitum præpropera laudis cupidine
consumpturi. Quamobrem parcant juventæ, parcant vitæ,
nec temere votum eis incesserit pereundi &c.
quod pugilibus necessum est, etiam vt
deprivatis vltoribus provide
consyderent, qualis
exitus
fiat.
