De pinguedine, carnibus, ossibus, sic coriis Cetorum, ac similium animalium.


CAP. XX.


Cetorum magna vtilitas.                                         CETIS, seu balenis e mari piscatorum arte, ingenio, &
                                        magno labore extractis, sive vi ventorum ac tempestatum,
Currus 300. ex vno ceto replentur.                                         aut inimicorum piscium furia littoribus impulsis, incolæ
                                        prædam securibus, & asciis partiuntur, ita vt ex vnius balenæ,
                                        sive ceti carne, pinguedine, & ossibus, CCL. vel
Ceti carnes & lardum sale condiuntur,                                         CCC. plaustra repleri possint. Carnem & lardum in multis,
                                        & magnis vasis, inter cæteros immensos marinos pisces
                                        sale condiunt: eaque pro commoditate, & esca domestica
Ceti pinguedo maxima.                                         vtuntur, aliisque ad eum vsum vendunt in remotas orbis partes
deferenda: Pinguedo, vel adeps ceti, magna est in toto corpore, sed maxima
in capite circa cerebri medullam: vnde quandoque XII. lagenæ. quarum quælibet
vix ab vno hominem portari potest, quandoque XXX. vel XL. hujus pinguedinis
plenæ (quælibet Barile Romanum magnitudine sua superans ) per totidem viros
Ceti pinguedinis vsus. fortes vix portatu idoneæ extrahuntur, eliciunturque. Vtilitas vero hujus saginæ ea
est, vt lampadibus infusa, & aucta semper, ad altaria, sive alia loca sacra, tam noctu,
quam interdiu continuo lumen administret: privato etiam vsui, ac domestico,
Ossa pro lignis comburuntur. cum in hyeme nulli ibidem dies sint, plurimum deserviens. Ossa præterea eius minora
Pisces & animalia loco lignorum comburuntur.defectu lignorum domestico foco adaptantur: immo & aliorum piscium capita,
vti etiam Solinus cap. XXV. gentem Neurorum ponit, quæ ossibus adolet ignes
socorum. Adest & assertio Volaterrani lib. XXV. qui pro miro adducit, Scythas
animalia, & Tylenses loco lignorum pisces comburere: quod in Septentrione vltra
Nidrosiam non est, quia ibi (lignis ob frequentes tempestates haud crescentibus)continuo
Ceti corio 40. homines vestiuntur.comburunt ossa piscium in maxima multitudine ( vt supra dictum est) captorum.
Ex corio denique balenæ fiunt balthea, loculi, tractorii funes pro vsu campanarum,
diu durantes: immo partita pelle vnius beluæ, XL. homines ex ea vestiri
Chelonophagi.queunt, quemadmodum Solinus cap. LXVII. refert de Chelonophagis, qui
