Sir Edward Coke, Lord Chief Justice, the great champion of parliamentary rights. 1634, by Nicholas Stone is a magnificent example of monumental hyperbole. (Hyperbole, from a Greek word meaning "excess," is a figure of speech that uses extreme exaggeration to make a point or show emphasis. It is the opposite of understatement.) The latin is said to be clumsy, an extraordinary mixture of Plautus and Cicero, and there are mistakes which are possibly the fault of the man who cut the inscription. Acknowledge, Linnell and Wearing.In Black and white marble. Simple sarcophagus, white recumbent effigy. Noble Tuscan columns left and right, carrying an open segmental pediment on which recline not two but four virtues. There is another monument by sculptor Joseph Nollekens for Jane Coke 1805.
