Hieroglyphics of Horapollo, tr. Alexander Turner Cory, , at sacred-texts.com
When they would denote a man who after his former
excesses at length becomes steady, they portray a BULL BOUND ABOUT BY A WILD FIG BRANCH; for if when violent he is bound with a wild fig branch, he becomes gentle.
133:1 Treb. renders, novissima calamitate castigatum, "chastised by a very recent calamity."
