Cedo Nulli

Erasmus

Terminus in rock form refused to be moved to allow the new temple to Jupiter to be constructed in Rome.

Symbolizing the humanist stance against superstition,

Erasmus adopted the tale as his motto and Holbein depicts him above as the human/rock Terminus, willing to stand down only to death.
