De puerorum exercitiis.


CAP. I.

Exercitia puerorum et juvenum.                                         NE autem Gothorum pueri, & adolescentes ignavia, &
                                        otio torpescere permittantur, aut damnatis artibus primos
                                        annos transigant juventutis, pro consuetudine semper
                                        servatum est, vt diversis exercitiis instruatur exilis ætas,
                                        præcipue militaribus exercitiis reservanda, in sagittatoria
                                        arte, juxta vniuscujusque ætatis capacitatem, vt se
Panis non datur nisi tangenti metam.                                         diligenter exerceant: eo videlicet modo, vt non panis quidem
                                        pueris exhibeatur, nisi sagitta prius tetigerint metam,
                                        instructorum industria collocatam, prout in simili casu
Strabo meminit lib. III. de funditoribus Hispanorum.
Bestiæ rapaces. Hominibus vero grandioris ætatis nulla pœna infligitur, quia mutua æmulatione seipsos
invicem artis perfectione omnimode superare contendunt, maxime vt rapaces
Peritia puerorumbestias continue apud eos sævientes, interimere possint, & patriæ, suamque libertatem
hac arte tueri. Reperiuntur itaque pueri vix XII. annos egressi, tanta peritia sagittandi
instructi, vt jussi telo traiicere caput, pectus, pedesque minimarum avium,
Ballista. a longe positarum, infallibiliter tangant: nec minus senes oculorum aciem adhuc
Calami deni simul eiiciuntur ab arcu. retinentes. Hujus rei monstruosum exemplum Saxo Danorum historicus de quodam
sene adducit: cujus ballista tam portentoso cornu protendebatur, vt denos nervo calamos
adaptaret: hi vegetiore jactu pariter in hostem detorti, totidem numero vulnera
confecerunt: quo facto in memoriam revocatur Periclymenes Neleus,
cui (vt inquit Ovidius ) posse sagittas,
Sumere quas vellet, rursumque reponere sumptas,
Neptunus dederat, Nelei sanguinis autor.
