Cabilliavus: Epigrammata selecta

Epigrammata selecta by Balduinus Cabilliavus (1620)

This book looks to be full of delights, with a lovely distich right on the first page, although most of the poems are tetrastichs, rather than distichs:

Nox et Dies
Mille oculos gerit illa, Cyclops hic errat: at uno
Plus oculo hic cernit: luscus an Argus erit?
