Sociacus: Epigrammata

Epigrammatum libri septem, odarum duo by Benedictus Sociacus (1616)

This religious poetry is definitely on the long side, although there are some distichs here, too. There is a lot of bleed-thru in the pages; the scan is good but the book itself is a challenge to digitize! Here's one nice distich:

De Sanctissima Cruce
Tartarei posthac ne quis tremat ora Draconis?
Crux caput obtrivit; nunc ubi virus erit?
