De machinis, & bombardis castrensibus.


CAP. XVII.


                                        QVANTA compendia mutuæ destructionis parant obsidentes, Humiliati bello cautius agunt.
                                        ac obsessi, satis provide præter hanc imaginem consyderat,
                                        qui bellorum incommodis fuerat humiliatus, ne frustra
                                        per beatum Iob scriptum videatur: Fiat illi sicut RegiIob.
                                        meditanti bellum &c. Cernuntur hic primo ex altioribus
                                        muris cbsessorum immensæ trabes funibus ligatæ, ad levem
                                        funiculorum incisionem super capita aggredi præsumentiumTrabes pendentes.
                                        ad casum relaxandæ. Præterea in suburbiis arcium majores
                                        bombardæ sitæ videntur, præsertim ad infringendum, vel
impediendum quarumcunque machinarum intrusionem, vel admotionem. Sed quæ
secretius ex arcibus, aut propugnaculis in obsidentes eiicienda per calcem vivamInstrumenta castrensium obsessorum.
& bullientem, picemque ardentem, resinam inflammatam, cuspides ferreas & hamatas,
circulos igniferos, & harpagines ferreas, ac indissolubiles tripennes cum asperrimis
tribulis, & quadratis stylis ferreis, atque ignitis sagittis excogitata, & callide
eiicienda sunt, nil amplius eorundem malorum expertis opus erit inferere declarationem, Mala omnia expertis nota.
cum alibi de fundis, & telis ignitis, pro parte videatur ostensum. Quid
vero obsidentes pro sua securitate, speque victoriæ consequendæ ex opposito meditantur,
et agunt, satis deprehenditur e rotatis machinis in obsessos pertinacius admovendis.
Tegminibus enim tabularum quercinarum cuneato ordine in machinis elevatarum,
locum demoliendum invasuri accedere solent, eo præsertim animo, vt vel viribus
obsessos invadant, vel minacibus armis exterreant, & fatigent, aut eorum inanem
fiduciam adimant, aut seditionibus eos angustiatos involuant, aut ab impetu
cedendo remissius agant, aut aliquem eventum expectent, quo tepido aggressu videanturModus obsidentium aggrediendi.
nil agere velle, aut posse amplius in obsidione manere, vt sic tergiversando,
& cunctando ( donec occasio emergat ) vnanimi insultu insuperabiles fiant: quo casum
non trabibus, calcino pulmente, tribulis, aut ferreis stylis, sed ensibus, scutis,
sic contis cominus adhibitis, obsidio tantopere firmata, & tantis angustiis servata, Horrenda prætium cædes.
necessario est dirimenda: taleque spectaculum illico eveniet, vt alii intereant, alii ferro
stringantur captivi, alii vitam mercaturi fide militari obligentur, alii irrumpentes
retrudantur, alii clamoribus dissonis in præcipitia ruant, vel extrudantur. Nec
