F. [ranco] E.[stius] (Noble Corvinus, the Raven gives you help with a congenial portent; the savage Gaul defiles the soil with his blood. Fortune sides with those who try to achieve something great and the great Gods are touched by brave deeds.) [Latin translation from Leeflang, Huigen, and Ger Luijten. _Hendrick Goltzius (1558-1617): Drawings, Prints and Paintings._ Amsterdam: Rijksmuseum, 2003, p. 90.]
