Stoa: Disticha in omnes fabulas Ovidii

Disticha in omnes fabulas P. Ovidii Nasonis Metamorphoseon by G. F. Quintianus Stoa (1514)

This retells the stories from Ovid's Metamorphoses in the form of distichs. For example, here is the death of Pentheus:
Penthea, quid lacerat mater? lacerantque sorores;
Non aprum violant, Penthea sed feriunt.
