¶Of September. Cap. 17.
THe ninth month is called September, and hath that name, because hee is the vii. month of temperate rayne, that is to vnderstand after March: for then ofte is plentie of raine. And this month is called Tarsa among the Hebrewes, & Corios among the Gréekes: and hath xxx. dayes: his night hath twelue houres, and his day xii. In this month is euen∣nesse of daye and night in haruest time: for in the middle thereof the sunne com∣meth into the signe that is called Libra. And this month is the ende of summer, and beginning of Haruest. In this mo∣neth, Grapes be ripe: and therefore hée is painted in a vineyeard, as a Gardener gathering grapes in a basket. And this month is chaungeable and vnstedfast. In his beginning heate is strong, and withdraweth and abateth in his end: and hath haruest coldnesse. Among the He∣brewes this month was full solemyne. For among them the seuenth daye, the seuenth month, and the seuenth yeare, were in great worship.
