Yet for his land of Arcadie he tooke most care and charge. The Springs and streames that durst not run he set againe at large. He clad the earth with grasse, the trees with leaves both fresh and greene Commaunding woods to spring againe that erst had burned bene. Now as he often went and came it was his chaunce to light Upon a Nymph of Nonacris whose forme and beautie bright Did set his heart on flaming fire.

For though Diana in this chase Should with hir owne shield him defend, yet should this hand of mine Even maugre Dame Dianas heart confound this orped Swine. Such boasting words as these through pride presumptuously he crakes: And streyning out himselfe upon his tiptoes streight he takes His Pollax up with both

. Give attention, all of you. In the first place, Hedylium, my business is with you--you, who are the favorite of the corn-merchants, men who have, all of them, immense mountains of wheat piled up at home; take you care that wheat is brought here for me, to suffice this year to come for myself and all my household, and that I may so abound in corn that the city may change my name for me, and instead of the procurer Ballio proclaim me King lasionsKing Iasion: Iasius or Iasion, was a king of Arcadia, the father of Atalanta, who attended the hunt of the Calydonian boar, and was beloved by Meleager There was another person of the same name, who was the lover of Ceres, and was slain by the thunderbolts of Jove. As he was said to have been the father, by Ceres, of Plutus, the God of Riches, he is probably the person here referred to. CALIDORUS apart.
