Pasquier: Epigrammata

Epigrammatum, lib. VII. Iconum lib. II. Tumulorum lib. I. by Etienne Pasquier (1618)

This is a book full of delights! The epigrams are in a variety of meters, and I should be able to find some good distichs here, too! The "icones" cover both ancient and contemporary figures. For example, here is Catilina:
Tu Catilina peris Marco su bsonsule, sed mors
Distulit haec tua, non sustulit omne nefas.
