Matham sculp. et excud; below image: Alma Venus quocunque venis tua magna potestas, / Imperium sine fine tuum; supera infera Mundi / Obsequijs devota tuis: tu gaudia nutris, / Et pecudum omne genus iucundo pascis amore: / Blanda quies homini, divûmque aeterna voluptas, / Qua caelum, ventos, tempestatesque serenas. / Te penes arbitrium pelagi, Dominamque fatentur / Neptunusque pater Phorcique exercitus omnis. / Lucem vidit post obitum Inventoris.
