HARPOCRATES
simulacrum in sacris Isidis et Serapidis erat, quod digito labiis impresso admonere videbatur, ut silentium fieret. Hunc Aegyptii silentii Deum esse volebant, fil. Isidis, post mortem Osiridis natum. Revera autem Graecus Philosophus fuit Harpocrates, cuius eruditio ac praecepta eo maxime tendebant, ut silentium praeciperet, et omnibus rebus anteponeret. Hinc reddere
Harpocatem (ut monet Erasmus in Adagiis) proverbialiter dictum pro mutum facere Catull. Carm. 74. v. 4.
---- Et patruum reddidit Harpocratem.
