[sig. (2)8r] Δεκαστιχον in Triumphalem Currum Stibij præparati.

Præterijt Seclum; quo dia Minerva ad Hieram
BasilI Fratris condidit artis opus:
In quo mirandas miranda dividit arte
Virtutes Stibii, quæ latuêre diu.
Jani Tholdi, Vvlcania in arte periti,
In lucem studio jam modò prodit
Tanckius id, Lumen Medicorvm, comprobat Ipse;
Hermetis frangans namque pererrat odor.
Ergò, Mome vale; nihil hîc, quod carpere possis,
Repperies nihil hîc: Mome superbe.

Dodecasyllable on the Triumphant Chariot of Prepared Antimony.

The age has passed in which the divine Minerva, through the holy work of Brother Basil, concealed the wondrous virtues of antimony, which had long remained hidden. Now, by the skill of Janus Tholdius, an expert in Vulcan's art, it emerges into the light through diligent study. Tanckius himself approves it, for he breaks through with the fragrance of Hermes. Therefore, farewell, mocker; you will find nothing here to criticize, nothing to ridicule, O arrogant mocker.
