Querʹno

.

Camillo Querno, of Apulia, hearing that Leo X. was a great patron of poets, went to Rome with a harp in his hand, and sang his Alexias, a poem containing 20,000 verses. He was introduced to the Pope as a buffoon, but was promoted to the laurel.

Rome in her Oapitol saw Querno sit.

Thronëd on seven hills, the Antichrist of wit.”


Dunciad, H.
