* Illi robur et aes triplex
Circa pectus erat, qui fragilem truci
Commisit pelago ratem
Primus . . . . . . . . . . . says Horace, undoubtedly with
the Mediterranean in mind. The In English this would be, roughly:
"That man had a heart of oak and three-fold brass, who first entrusted
his frail bark to the stormy deep."
