Illustrated: Piscatores et Piscis Insperatus


M0851 - M0852 - M0853

852. Piscatores et Piscis Insperatus. Piscatores, iactis in mari retibus, diu multumque fatigati, nil ceperant. Et iam taedio, labore, ac desperatione victi, abire decreverant, Fortunam incusantes, cum, insperato, piscis immanis, ab alio actus, in ipsam piscatorum tristium scapham insilit, quem hi, supra modum laetantes, comprehendunt et Fortunae Deae acceptum referunt, quod ars diu tentata negaverat.
