¶Of Iuly. Cap. 15.

THe seuenth moneth is called Iulius, and hath that name of Iulius Caesar, because he was borne in that month: or as it is saide, in that moneth he was made Emperour. And this month is cal∣led Canilis among the Hebrewes, & Pa∣netnos among the Gréekes, & hath xxxi. dayes, & his daye hath xvi. houres, & his night hath viii. And this month is most feruent: for in the middle of this month the sunne beginneth to be in Leone, & the Canicular daies begin. And therfore is great passing heate in that time, be∣cause of the hot signe, and also because of the most hot starre. Also yt time all hot passions & euills increase, & that time is most disconuenient & vnaccording to me∣dicine. That time by full great heat cō∣ming inward, & wasting moysture & hu∣mour, the Corne ripeth. And therefore Iulius is painted with an hooke, reaping Corne: for then is couenable reaping time. And this month is changing and unstable, whose heat is strong in the be∣ginning, and slacker in the ende.
