Opitz: Florilegium Variorum Epigrammatum

Florilegium Variorum Epigrammatum by Martin Opitz (1644)

The book contains Greek epigrams rendered in Latin by Opitz, along with Latin epigrams drawn from both classical and neo-Latin authors. There are German translations for all the poems also. I can find some good distichs here, too - here's one by Buchanan I don't think I've seen before!

Frustra ego te laudo, frustra me, Zoile, laedis:
Nemo mihi credit, Zoile, nemo tibi.
