  • Poem, Stéphane Gascoin to Gaston Duclo; Latin
Source: Gaston Duclo, Apologia argyropoeiae et chrysopoeiae, Nevers: Pierre Roussin, 1592, sig. Ee2v [BP.Duclo.1590-01] [see also BP.Duclo.1598-01]
The passage conveys that even without biological children, one's legacy can endure through significant contributions, like the creation of alchemical arts, specifically the making of gold (Aurificas artes) and Argyropoeia. These intellectual and creative achievements are likened to offspring, ensuring the person's enduring honor and legacy through the ages.
