The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXVII.

The Astrologer

Indica mihi si nosti omnia. Sciebas quòd nasciturus esses, & numerum dierum tuorum noueras? — Iob xxviii.

THE ASTROLOGER.
He contemplates a pendent sphere. But Death thrusts a skull before his eyes.

Tu dis par Amphibologie

Ce qu’aux aultres doibt aduenir.

Dy moy donc par Astrologie

Quand tu deburas a moy uenir?
