Image: Iuppiter, Bona, et Mala


M0773 - M0774 - M0775

774. Iuppiter, Bona, et Mala. Bona omnia a Malis, quod fluxa et caduca essent, accusabantur; quapropter sese in caelum receperunt. Mala vero Iovem interrogarunt quomodo inter homines versari deberent. Quibus ille respondit ut singula singulos invaderent, et modo hunc, modo illum attingerent. Hinc itaque Mala, cum prope nos degant, continuo homines premunt; Bona vero tardius e caelo descendunt.
