De exercitiis gladiatoriis.


CAP. XVI.

                                        DEMVM vt omnia alia, que ad servandas, acuendatque
                                        vires attinebant, assidua ingenii exercitatione tractabant
Gladiatorum exercitia.                                         antiqui Septentrionales: ita a gladiatoribus vitandi inferendique
                                        ictus consuetudinem, studioso exercitii genere contrahebant:
Dimicatores.                                         quorum quidam insigni dimicationis arte callentes,
                                        adversæ frontis supercilium infallibili ictu ferire solebant:
                                        quo si quis recepto versilitate palpebræ timidius conniveret,
Visus immobilis.                                         mox aula ejectus stipendiis defungebatur. Tantum enim
                                        virium animis eorum a natura, & visu insitum erat, vt etiam
receptis in vultum ictibus, ne leves quidem superciliorum nutus ederent, atque
Pugiles Olympici. adversus omne percussoris irritamentum in eodem habitu animum continerent, in nullo
mollius se gerentes, quam pugiles Olympici: de quibus gravissimi autores testantur,
quod durissimas plagas excipientes, & cæstibus contusi, nihil omnino ingemuerint.
Ennii carmen. Enimuero Aquilonaribus viris nullo vnquam tempore jure dici potuit
Salmacida spolia. Ennianum illud: Vos etenim juvenes animos geritis muliebres. Aut illud: Salmacida
spolia sine sanguine & sudore. Sed tales erant, vt eis nullus labor insolitus,
Fortitudo athletica. nullus locus asper, aut arduus erat: non armatus hostis formidolosus,
non mors ipsa terrorem est incutere valuit, adeo vt quandoque
in duello morientes, soluto in risum ore, per summam
doloris dissimulationem spiritum
reddiderint.
