De Vris, & eorum ferocitate.

CAP. XXXV.

                                        ETSI ferocissimum hoc animal, videlicet vrum, Gothia,
                                        aut Suetia non habeat: tamen quia eius figura in Charta mea
                                        Gothica, sive Septentrionali descriptione, præcipue in Lithuania,
                                        vna cum aliis animalibus inserta est, volui eam
                                        huic loco imponere, vt vnicuique bestiæ assignari debeat originis
Vrus.                                         suæ locus. Est igitur Vrus bos agrestis, adeo ferox,
                                        & fortis, vt armatum militem equo insidentem, cornibus
                                        elevet, & prosternat. Neque enim homini, neque feræ, quam
                                        prospexerit, parcere novit: idque crudelius plerunque evenit,
Bubali retrorsum cornua mittunt. quia maximæ velocitatis est, cornua antrorsum quasi directe mittens, velut bubali
cornua retrorsum ad terga mittuntur. Hercinia Germaniæ maxima sylva, versus
Indiam per mare Caspium protensa, hanc bestiam nutrit: cujus cornua in tantum
protensa sunt, vt Isidorus & Solinus dicunt, quod ob insignem capacitatem inter
Cornua vrorum auro argentoque circundantur. Regias mensas, potuum gerula fiant: immo auro argentoque circundari solent,
atque inter amplissimas epulas tabulis Principum præsentari. Caro eius nihil differt
a communi boum carne, nisi solennioribus præparamentis multarum specierum, vt
Vrorum genera plura. viscositas eius totaliter elixetur. Vrorum autem genera multa sunt. Quidam habet
cornua alta, & longa: quidam brevia, & spissa, ac fortissima: & hæc genera
in saltibus Herciniæ sylvæ, versus Lithuanos, & Russos procreantur. Horum similes
Sigismundus rex Poloniæ. plures alias vidi in vivariis Serenissimi Regis Poloniæ Sigismundi primi
M. D. XXVIII. prope Regiam curiarnßalessa, vivente clarissimo viro
domino Boner. Et ii vti reservabantur, dum videretur, ad vsum Regiæ coquinæ.
Meminit etiam horum, Germanicarum rerum scriptor Franciscus Irenicus lib. VII.
Vri taurorum maximi. cap. XIII. his verbis: Sunt & vti taurorum maximi in Germania, pene omnem
tauri speciem habentes, nisi quod barbas longissimas nutriunt, ac cornibus breviusculis
apparent, alioqui pro tanta corporis mole. Cæsar, & Solinus ex eorum cornibus
Virgilius. pocula fieri indicant. Virg. lib. II. Geor.
Sylvestres vri assidue capreæque sequaces
illudunt.
Et lib. III.
Quæsitas ad sacra boves Iunonis, & vris
Imparibus ductos alta ad donaria currus.
