Abstract

The paper analyzes the symbolic meaning of sheep and wolf, lion and fox in the frontispieces of the third Latin translation of Machiavelli's Prince, made in 1699 by Kaspar Langenhert, and of the second Dutch translation by Daniel Ghys, dating 1705. These animals take different political meanings due to the indications suggested by the translator to a particular reader for a specific use of Machiavelli's treatise.
