Inscribed in plate, below image: Felix illa atas omnique beatior avo / Saturno regnante fuit, cum sæcla iuberent / Aurea securam mortales ducere vitam: / Sponte sua tellus, sine rastro et vomeris vsu, / Omnigenas fundebat opes, nec flumina lactis, / Nec latices deerant nunqua mærentis Jacchi: / Mellaz de viridi stillabant roscida quereu: / Aureus hanc vitam in terris Saturnus agebat. / Th. Schrevelius
