¶Of Ienia. chap. 56.
IEna is a precious stone that is founde in the eyen of a beast that is called Hi∣ena, & if this stone be put vnder a mans tongue, they say, that he shall tell many things that shall befall, as Isidore say∣eth.
(*The beast Hiena is a kind of wild greyhound, very great and strong, & sel∣dome ouercome and taken: and it may be when one may take him, whereas vi. men dare not assault him, that the stone which is in his eye, may haue a working vertue, such as is reported: But it is doubtfull. Read Gesner.)
