IF Martiall deeds, and practise of the pen Have wonne to auncient Grece a worthie fame: If Battels bold, and Bookes of learned men Have magnified the mightie Romain name: Then place this Prince, who well deserves the same: Since he is one of Mars and Pallas race:2 For both the Godds in him have sett in frame Their vertewes both, which both, he doth embrace. Of Macedon, adornde with heavenly grace, Of Romain stout, decorde* with learned skill, The Monarks all to thee shall quite their place: Thy endles fame shall all the world fulfill.
