XIV.—Sylvanus.

Whence, again, has Sylvanus appeared to be a god?  Perhaps it is agreeable so to call him from this, that the pipe sings sweetly because he bestows the wood; for, perhaps, it might not be so.  Thou hast bought a venal master, when thou shalt have bought from him.  Behold the wood fails!  What is due to him?  Art thou not ashamed, O fool, to adore such pictures?  Seek one God who will allow you to live after death.  Depart from such as have become dead in life.
