¶Of ashes called Fauilla. Chap. 9.

AShes be called Fauilla, and haue that name of Fouendo, nourishing & kéep∣ing, for they kéepe fire and couer it, and Cinis is little ashes left of quenching of sparkling matter, as Isid. saith, & Fauilla is small ashes, pale & dry, & light in the vtter part of a firie coale cleauing ther∣to, and dimmeth the shining therof, and slaketh and abateth the strength and the feruentnesse of the coale, and it is spark∣led with a little puffe and blast of wind: & when it is sparkled, dreth it is euer af∣ter gathered again, as Gregory saith. It is soone set on fire and on flame; but for default of féeding, it is sodainly quench∣ed: also fixie embers is rauishing of wind: & when it is quenched, it moueth down¦ward by his own weight: for it moueth downward by his owne mouing and is born vpward, by ye force of other things.
