And the fig tree said unto them
Rejecting the offer made:
should I forsake my sweetness and my good fruit;
for such the fruit of the fig tree is, sweet and good: so Julian F4 the emperor shows from various authors, Aristophanes, Herodotus, and Homer, that nothing is sweeter than figs, excepting honey, and that no kind of fruit is better, and, where they are, no good is wanting:
and go to be promoted over the trees?
the same is designed by this as the former.
