582        DE ANIMAL. DOMES.

Equorum ætas. Item ætas longæva deprehenditur in equis Persicis, Episoticis, ac
Siculis in annos quinquaginta: brevior autem Hispanicis, Numidicis, & Gallicis
extendi. Sed nec deest Solinus, qui mentionem facit de equo LXX. annorum.
Varro vtilem equum ad XVI. annum existimat. Nec optandi sunt
equi longævi, quia nec in re bellica, nec in rhedis trahendis, nec admissuris valent:
quia vltra XX. annum generare nequeunt, vt a doctissimis notantum est,
qui de agricolatione scripsere: neque equam vtilite vltra decimum annum concipere
posse iidem affirmant. Senectus equorum notari solet e canis superciliis,
immo etiam e caudarum certis noctis, & immersis oculis, putredine
plenis &c.

De Virgilii sententia in bonis Equis eligendis.

CAP. XI.

Signa boni equi.                                         CONTINVO pecoris generosi pul!us, in aruis
                                        Alrius ingreditur, & mollia crura reponit.
                                        Primus & ire viam, & fluvios tentare minaces
                                        Audet, & ignoto sese committere ponto.
                                        Nec vanos horret strepitus: illi ardua cervix,
                                        Argutumque caput, brevis aluus, obesaque terga.
                                        Luxuriatque toris animosum pectus: honesti
                                        Spadices, glaucique color deterrimus albis,
                                        Et gilvo. Tum, si qua sonum procul arma dedere,
Stare loco nescit, micat auribus, & tremit artus:
Collectumque fremens voluit sub naribus ignem.
Densa juba, & dextro jactata recumbit in anno.
At duplex agitur per lumbos spina, cavatque
Tellurem, & solido sonat ampliter vngula cornu.
Sed Columella lib. VII. de agricultura summa elegantia per singula quæque
membra eximiam equorum formam ostendit, cui nihil adiici potest.
Adhuc alio modo capiuntur signa boni Equi.
Signa boni equi. Auris acuta, brevis, caput exiguum, caro dura,
Et grandes oculi, cervix cum robore forti,
Et nares mundæ, comedens bene, per sine verme,
Et curtæ coxæ, justi vngues, atque rotundi,
Audax hinnitu, sufflans, terram pede rumpens.
Istis quadrupedum signis cognosce valorem.
Ad idem brevius.
Signa alia boni equi. Lucius
videlicet latitudine capitis.
Anguilla
decora longitudine.
Serpens
erecta cervice.
Leo
pectore lato.
Fœmina
rotundis clunibus.
Cattus
celeri cursu.
