¶Of the Heele. Cap. 56.

THe héele is the hinder part & the ne∣ther of the foote, and is called Calca∣neus in Latine: for with them the fores or steps be pight and printed in the earth as saith Isidore. And the heele is round, that it be not lightly hurt: & it is euen long to be fast sticked and printed: and it is sad, that it be not soone brused: and it is bound to the anckle bone with soft bondes and strings, to moue the casely∣er vpward & downward. And hurtings and woundes of the héele, be harde to heale, both for scarsitie of flesh, and also for continuall mouing, as saith Con∣stantin lib. 2.cap. 10.

Calcanei,*the heeles of a man or wo∣man, may diuers times come by infec∣tions, as the gout, straining, the crampe, the kybes, and such like.
