Phryx Aesopus (Osius, 1574)

285. DE MARI ET AMNE. (Perry 0)

IN mare non reflues quando magis inquit ad Amnem
Nereus, dum recipi tu sinis, Amnis ait.
Est qui largus opum, caret hic bene fine merendi,
Fontis ut irrigui vena perennat aquas.

Phryx Aesopus Habitu Poetico, by Hieronymus Osius, 1574 (artist not identified). Available online at the University of Mannheim. This book clearly recycles a set of images from another book of Aesop's fables. In some cases, the illustration does not match the fable shown, and in some cases I have not been able to identify what fable a given illustration is supposed to illustrate.
