Polydore: Adagia

Adagiorum opus, by Polydorus Vergilius (1532)

You can read about Polydore Vergil in this Wikipedia article; his Adagia are very helpfully divided into the "Profane" and the "Sacred." In addition to the GoogleBooks edition which you can download to your computer, be sure to check out the EXCELLENT edition that Dana Sutton has provided online, which includes an English translation plus notes: Polydore Vergil, Adagiorum Liber (1521 version).
