When Mercurie had punisht thus Aglauros spightfull tung And cancred heart, immediatly from Pallas towne he flung. And flying up with flittering wings did pierce to heaven above. His father calde him straight aside (but shewing not his love) Said: Sonne, my trustie messenger and worker of my will, Make no delay but out of hand flie downe in hast untill The land that on the left side lookes upon thy mothers light, Yon same where standeth on the coast the towne that Sidon hight. The King hath there a heirde of Neate that on the Mountaines feede, Go take and drive them to the sea with all convenient speede. He had no sooner said the word but that the heirde begun Driven from the mountaine to the shore appointed for to run, Whereas the daughter of the King was wonted to resort With other Ladies of the Court there for to play and sport.

But men thus undistinguished are, in the estimation of Sallust, little superior to the brute creation. "Optimus quisque, says Muretus, quoting Cicero, "honoris et gloriæ studio maximè ducitur;" the ablest men are most actuated by the desire of honor and glory, and are more solicitous about the character which they will bear among posterity. With reason, therefore, does Pallas, in the Odyssey, address the following exhortation to Telemachus: Hast thou not heard how young Orestes, fir'd With great revenge, immortal praise acquir'd ? * * * * * O greatly bless'd with ev'ry blooming grace, With equal steps the paths of glory trace !

And thus we see Creatures in many a wise crooked and ugly The prosperous sweethearts in a high esteem; And lovers gird each other and advise To placate Venus, since their friends are smit With a base passion- miserable dupes Who seldom mark their own worst bane of all.

He not only allowed them to receive, by decree of the senate, immense presents, but also to be decorated with the questorian and praetorian ensigns of honour. So much did he indulge them in amassing wealth, and plundering the public, that, upon his complaining, once, of the lowness of his exchequer, some one said, with great reason, that "It would be full enough, if those two freedmen of his would but take him into partnership with them."
