ng him to sowe Some part in ground new broken up, and some thereof to strow In ground long tillde before. Anon the yong man up did stie And flying over Europe and the Realme of Asias hie, Alighted in the Scithian land. There reyned in that coast A King callde Lyncus, to whose house he entred for to host. And being there demaunded how and why he thither came, And also of his native soyle and of his proper name, I hight (quoth he) Triptolemus and borne was in the towne Of Athens in the land of Greece, that place of high renowne. I neyther came by Sea nor Lande, but through the open Aire I bring with me Dame Ceres giftes which being sowne in faire And fertile fields may fruitfull Harvests yeelde and finer fare. The savage King had spight, and to th'intent that of so rare And gracious gifts himselfe might seeme first founder for to be, He entertainde him in his house, and when asleepe was he, He came upon him with a sword: but as he would have killde him, Dame Ceres turnde him to a Lynx,

as he flew, the flames of love enkindled more and more By meanes of stirring. Neither did he stay his flight before He came within the land and towne of Cicons with his pray. And there soone after being made his wife she hapt to lay Hir belly, and a paire of boyes she at a burthen brings, Who else in all resembled full their mother, save in wings The which they of their father tooke. Howbeit (by report) They were not borne with wings upon their bodies in this sort. While Calais and Zetes had no beard upon their chin, They both were callow. But as soone as haire did once begin In likenesse of a yellow Downe upon their cheekes to sprout, Then (even as comes to passe in Birdes) the feathers budded out Togither on their pinyons too, and spreaded round about On both their sides. And finally when childhod once was spent And youth come on, togither they with other Minyes went To Colchos in the Galley that was first devisde in Greece, Upon a sea as then unknowen, to fetch the golden fleece.

There while they going to the King demaund the golden fleece Brought thither certaine yeares before by Phryxus out of Greece, And of their dreadfull labors wait an answere to receive: Aeetas daughter in hir heart doth mightie flames conceyve. And after strugling verie long, when reason could not win The upper hand of rage: she thus did in hir selfe begin: In vaine, Mut of hand: And doe not any lenger time thus lingring fondly stand. For ay shall Jason thinke himselfe beholding unto thee: And shall thee marrie solemly: yea honored shalt thou bee Of all the Mothers great and small throughout the townes of Greece For saving of their sonnes that come to fetch the golden fleece. And shall I then leave brother, sister, father, kith and kin? And household Gods, and native soyle, and all that is therein? And saile I know not whither with a straunger? Yea: wh

lightsome Moone I darken oft, though beaten brasse abate thy perill soone. Our Sorcerie dimmes the Morning faire, and darkes the Sun at Noone. The flaming breath of firie Bulles ye quenched for my sake And caused their unwieldie neckes the bended yoke to take. Among the Earthbred brothers you a mortall war did set And brought asleepe the Dragon fell whose eyes were never shet. By meanes whereof deceiving him that had the golden fleece In charge to keepe, you sent it thence by Jason into Greece. Now have I neede of herbes that can by vertue of their juice To flowring prime of lustie youth old withred age reduce. I am assurde ye will it graunt. For not in vaine have shone These twincling starres, ne yet in vaine this Chariot all alone By drought of Dragons hither comes. With that was fro the Skie A Chariot softly glaunced downe, and stayed hard thereby.

Temples decked were with garlands every where, And supplications made to Jove and warlicke Pallas were, And all the other Gods, to whome more honor for to show, Gifts, blud of beasts, and frankincense the people did bestow As in performance of their vowes. The right redoubted name Of Theseus through the lande of Greece was spred by flying fame. And now the folke that in the land of rich Achaia dwelt, Praid him of succor in the harmes and perils that they felt. Although the land of Calydon had then Meleager: Yet was it faine in humble wise to Theseus to prefer A supplication for the aide of him. The cause wherfore They made such humble suit to him was this. There was a Bore The which Diana for to wreake hir wrath conceyvde before Had thither as hir servant sent the countrie for to waast. For m

Howbee't his woorthy fame dooth lyve, and spreadeth over all The world, a measure meete for such a persone to beefall. This matcheth thee, Achilles, full. And this can never dye.

Not Diomed, nor Ajax Oylye durst Make clayme or chalendge to the same, nor Atreus yoonger sonne, Nor yit his elder, though in armes much honour they had wonne. Alone the sonnes of Telamon and Laert did assay Which of them two of that great pryse should beare the bell away.

This Numa thought it not Inough that he the knowledge of the Sabine rites had got. The deepenesse of the noble wit to greater things was bent, To serch of things the natures out. The care of this intent Did cause that he from Curie and his native Countrye went With peynfull travell, to the towne where Hercules did hoste. And asking who it was of Greece that in th'Italian coast Had buylt that towne, an aged man well seene in storyes old, To satisfye his mynd therin the processe thus him told: As Hercules enriched with the Spannish kyne did hold His voyage from the Ocean sea, men say with lucky cut He came aland on Lacine coast. And whyle he there did put His beace to grazing, he himself in Crotons house did rest, The greatest man in all those parts and unto straungers best: And that he there refresht him of his tedious travell, and That
