De ritu bibendi Septentrionalium populorum


CAP. XXXVII.

                                        NEC displicet curiosis inspectoribus interpretationem admittere, Modus absque modo bibendi.
                                        qualis sit modus Septentrionalium gentium in bibendo.
                                        In primis, quod religiosum sit stando pro reverentia
                                        numinum, ac principum bibere, & quasi in agone
                                        per sudorem contendere, quis vno, vel altero, vel multiplicato
                                        haustu amphoram evacuet capitolinam, hoc est ingentem
                                        mensuram: qualem Imperator ille Gothus Maximinus, Maximinus Imp. Gothus.
                                        inter devorandum LX. libras carnium, alacriter hausisse
                                        se videtur, velut alter Vitellius, qui integram avium venationem, Vitellius.
alterque peponum latissimum campum vnico pastu absumpsit, & forsitan
Milo aliquis, vnius bovis comestione satietatem non relinquens. Sed transeant illaMilo.
tanquam sparsa in gurgite spatioso. Videntur itaque in mensa ( suprapositæ imaginis )
quasi coronati sedere, ac tali forma vasis potare: quod forsan inexpertis generare
posset admirationem. Sed mirabilius esset longo ordine intueri ministros, Ordo portantium vasa.
quasi cornutorum cervorum pastores gregatim incedere, vt ea vasa cereali liquore repleta,
propinent convivis. Sed neque his contenti cerimoniis, etiam contendunt monstrare
sobrietatem, vt vase tam alto, repletoque, nudo capiri superposito, choreamSobrietas mentita.
gyrando reducant: similiter & alia vasa manibus vtrisque allata, vino, cervisia, medone, Chorizantes vasa in capite gestant.
aut mulso, vel musto repleta, convivantibus ad æquales haustus exhibeant
epotanda. Nec excusatio opponi solet, quod in tali certamine provocatus non exeat
victor: vt sententia Platonis lib. de legibus, bonus socius, & illustrisPlato bibulos vocat bonos socios.
appellari mereatur. Bonum socium Plaso appellat, qui bibendo,
& judicando novit evitare ebrietatem.
