TO THE Much Esteemed ALLEN PENINGTON Esq Doctor of PHYSICK: AND TO William Pennington Practitioner in Physick, his Son and Heir. IT may be thought a Presumption in me (having been brought up only in Herauldry) to Treat of things above my Sphere, and what belong more properly to Doctors, and Chy∣rurgions. It is true, et give me leave to make this Appology; that though for the Practick there may be pleaded an insufficiency; yet as a lover of Arts and Sciences, it cannot be taken amiss to have the Theorick, and be acquainted as with their Instruments (which are in Arms) so with their Terms, which is for Gentlemens discourse; therefore as it is necessary for the Ingenious to know the one, so it is much satisfaction to be acquainted in the other (for Knowledge is no great Burthen) which is here drawn up into an easie Me∣thod for the benifit of such as be Discreet. And therefore is hoped will with others be as willingly accepted by You, which is all that is desired from him who is Your Devoted Friend Ready to Serve You, Randle Holme.


1. I Have long insisted on the bearing of Animimals, or living Creatures unreasonable; distinguishing them according to their kinds, and forms; and as they had a similitude one too anther, which being finished; we proceed in the next place to treat of the most nobler Creature, which above all others is in dued with reason and understanding; I mean Man: whom GOD hath given a reasonable Soul, and for whose sake He created all other things: subjecting them to His Soveraignity, that they should▪ serve Man; and Man only should serve, and Glorifie his God, and Creator.

Man in the Creation of his Body is subject to a three sold Estate; to Live, to Dye, to Rise again. The first is to have a Body to live, and have a being therein: to en∣joy that outward form and lineament of the Body; which as it is in its self, is divided into several parts and members; not the least, but it hath its peculiar term, or name, by which it is distinguished from its other (whither) external, or internal parts.

We shall then in the first place give you the several terms of Art used by Anatomists, and Chirurgions; for the sundry part of the Body: and to begin with the internals.

2. AS all the Senses do derive their original from the Head, the seat of all. So I shall in the next place give the Reader some Terms of Art used by the natu∣rallists in the handling of the said Senses; which say the most, are in number five: the first and cheifest place (as being the most excellent Sence) is assigned to that of touching, or feeling. Aristotle calleth it, the Sense; as if he should have said, the Sense of Senses: being the most excellent, and eminent Sense of all.

Terms of Art that the Learned use about the Sense of Touching, and Feeling.


A Tactation, or a touching; is that whereby we dis∣cern the difference of objects, and the nature of things: as by

  • A Tactation, or Digitation; which is a bare or simple touching of a thing, whereby we perceive the object touched to be either hot, cold, or luke-warm.
  • A Palption, or Palmation, or Tractation; is the handling, or gentle stroaking of a thing, by which the object is discovered to be either rough or smooth, hairy or naked.
  • A Manupulation, is a griping touch by which we know a thing, to be either wet or dry; sollid or porous or spungy.
  • A Depression, or Compression; by pressing, thusting together, we know the thing to be hard or soft.
  • An Ellevation, or Tollation; is the lifting up of a thing, which shews it to be light or heavy.


A Sensibility or Sense of Felling; is that feeling which is in our selves, and this is communicated to us in divers manners: as,

  • A Titillation, or a Tickling; which is when we are touched with a soft fine and gentle touch.
  • A Pruriginous, or tickling Itch, is when we feel a pricking tickle, being a smart between both.
  • A Punction, or Punctious feeling; when we are pierced (as it were) with sharp pricks, or sharp pain.
  • A Uerminous feeling; is when one is gnawed and pulled in the Belly with Worms.
  • A Uerberation, or Uerberous feeling; a smart∣ing pain, as when we are beaten with rods, whips, or scourges.
  • A Flamation, or Flamatious feeling; as the pain of burning and scalding: or through hot raging di∣stempers.
  • A Dolorons feeling; is any kind of paine or grief of the Body.
  • A Torturous, or Tormenting feeling; is when pains bring horror, and amazement: and that there is a continued grief without ease. This is that which the School Men term Poena Sensus, an Intollera∣ble painful feeling which with patience cannot be un∣dergon.

The Sense of Tasting.

A Gustation is the Sence of tasting, which proceeds from the Instrument of the Tongue, and Pallate; now there are several sorts of tasts: as,

  • The Sapious, or Sapitious, or Savoury taste; is when the Sense is pleased and delighted therewith: as in eating ripe fruit.
  • The Dulceous, Luscious, or sweet tast; as in Hony.
  • The Amarous, or bitter tast; as in Galls and Worm∣wood, &c.
  • The Acerous, or Asterous tast; is a sharp sowre art tast as in Vinegar, and Verges.
  • The Flamous, Keen, smart fiery, and biting tast; as in Pepper and Ginger.
  • The Harsh, or Crabbed tast; in Crabs, and Wild fruit.

The Sense of Smelling.

An Odorous, or Order, and Odoration: the Sense of smelling which is distinguished by,

The Odorifarous, Fragrant, sweet, pleasant scent, a smell that pleaseth and refresheth the Sense.

The Aramatick, or sweet smell; is a pleasant smell.

The Foeteous, or Puteous smell; when it hath a stench and tainteth the Air.

Page  388The Aciduous, or Acid smell; a sower smell, which is troublesome and disturbeth the Sense.

The Luscious, or Fainty smell; is that which is sweet, yet it hath a faintiness in it, that hurts the Sense.

The Ranciduous, or Mouldy scent; which is a smell from things corrupted.

The Sense of Hearing.

An Audiens, or hearing of sounds; hath the Instru∣ment of the Eears, and Head to receive the same: which are several, as

  • A Sound, is any noise.
  • An Eccho, is a sound beaten Back, or the rocoyling of a sound.
  • A Song, or a Tuned Noise; a Musical, or plea∣sant sound.
  • A Crash, a noise proceeding from a breach of a house or wall.
  • A Crack, or Thunder clap; is a sound from the squeezing or pressing of airy things together.
  • A Uoice, is the noise or sound of speaking.
  • A Tinckling sound, is the sound of Mettles.
  • A Rumbling noise, is the sound that proceeds from a violent motion, or blast; as of Wind or Thunder.

The Sense of Seeing.

The Uisus, or sight; proceeds from the Instrument of the Eye, which seeth according to the several distances, as the object is placed: for,

  • The Lippeous, or Sand blind, or Pore blind; sees not the oject except it be near the Eyes.
  • The Blinkard, or he that looks Asquint; sees when the thing is at a small distance.
  • The Lusciosus, or Luscitious; a dimm sight, such as fees the object faintly, and in a mist: that sees a little by Day light, worse at Twi-light, and nothing at all in the Night.
  • The Rolling Eyed, or the Gogle Eyes; Eyes that are always in motion: which see neither near, or far off.
  • The Nocturnal sight, that sees the object in the Night.

The Sense of Generation, or Procre∣ation.

I am not the first which have termed it a Sense, but it is set down to my Hands by that title, who from its de∣light in the act, give it that name. Its pleasure exceeds the delights of all the other Senses, and is contrary to them: hear what my Author saith concerning it, Croo lib. 8. fol. 648. Nature hath endued the parts of Gene∣ration with a most exquisite Sense of tickling pleasure, for the conservation of the species, or kinds of Creatures; so that the Creatures being ravished with an incredible kind of pleasures, do more readily apply themselves to vene∣rial embracements: which otherwise is a thing filthy and abominable, and would not be done; were not the Sense of pleasure, in the case which is variable, according to its several Acts: as,

  • The Dclectation of the Senses, the fountain of plea∣sure: it is the Sense of delight, that Creatures have in the conception of their species or kinds, whose instruments are the weapons of Procreation.
  • The Aspection, or beholding and assosiation, or ac∣companying of the Creatures, each with its desired Mate.
  • The Osculation, or kissing; and the Amplectation, or embraceings of the Creatures.
  • The Surgation, or rising of the instrument of Pro∣creation.
  • The Extention, or Prostitution; the laying out of the Body, the humble of the Creature.
  • The Iungation, or Copulation; the joyning and coupling of the parts.
  • The Stupification, the dulling and besotting of all the other Senses in this act.
  • The Ejection, or Ejaculation; is the parting with of the Spermatick humour, or Semenical liquor which consummateth the action.
  • The Titillation, or tickling pleasure, in Procre∣ation.

The Sense of Ease and Rest.

If this of Procreation, from its Pleasure, Delight, and Sweetness in the Act be counted a Sense; then I may add one more, to make the number seven; it shall not (as many of our skilful Anatomists, name several Arteries and Sinews, Innominata) be a thing that goes without a name, but it shall be termed

The Quiesceous sense, or requies sensum, the resting sense; it is the pleasure of rest, and sweetness of ease after labour and trouble: Now this sense of se hath many branches in it, which makes it sweet, pleasant, and delightful; as

  • Ambulation, or Walking, it is contrary to the violent and laborious act of running, in which there is no little pleasure and delight; for when Men have oiled themselves in the ways of Sin, if after with David, they walk in the ways of Gods Commands, they will find much delight and sweetness therein, and rest to their Souls, Psal. 1.1.
  • Station, or Standing, hath an ease and rest in it; that is, to stand to the Faith, and confess the Cross, when others are weary and burthened with walking in Iniquity.
  • Sedetion, or sitting, is a sign of Rest and Pleasure for every Man that walks with God, hath that Blessing, to sit under his own Vine and Fig tree, and to eat and drink, and none to rise up against him, or make him afraid.
  • Cubation, or lying down, it is to take our rest, and ease our toiled and weary Limbs; the Bed to ly on, Page  389 is termed by Solomon and the Prophet Isaiah, the place of rest, and pleasure, and delight, to them as ly there∣on.
  • Dormation or sleeping, it is a comfortable ease, rest and repose after toil; the Sleep of a Labouring Man is (saith Solomon) sweet to him; and Blessed are those that are asleep in the Lord, for they rest from their La∣bours.

Now as Physitians say, he that is born Deaf shall ne∣ver speak; so those that do not enjoy this sense of ease and rest, have none of their other senses; so consequent∣ly without sense, senseless Creatures, stupified, infatuated, reprobated.

This is also blazoned a Ro∣mans head, or a Roman Emperours head: for it was a custom amongst them, thus to adorn their heads with Laurel Garlands in their triumphs, and victory over their enemies, and called a Ceasars head because the said Roman Emperours, from Iulius Caesar their first Emperour, were termed Caesars.

The Romans are ever drawn with yellow Carrusters or Tunica imbrauthered with Silver; the Labels of their sleeves, and Short basis, of Watchet; the under sleeves, and long stockins, white; with a Laurel Wreath with a Silver Jewel before: and rays of Gold, issuing from the Wreath.

If the Head have an Imperial crown, it is termed a Kings head.

If the Head have a Duckal crown, the it is termed a Dukes head, and so according to the degrees of Crowns mentioned in lib. 3. chap. 1. numb. 1. to 11.

A Wood-man is ever drawn with an Oak Garland, fructed on his head, and another about his middle, if he be either a Demy, or whole Man, 3 such as this, is born by the name of VVoodman.

A Demy one sans Arms cloathed S. is the Crest of Ougsperg.

There are three sorts of Cuckcolds: the Rame Cu••∣cold, the Goat Cuckcold, and the Ass Cuckcold. The first sees his horns and is contented with them. The second thinks he hath none, because he sees them not. And the last is jealous that his Ears are horns, when they are not.

This is also termed Midas head couped; who is fained by the Poets to be the Son of Gordius the Cow-heard, and King of Phrygia, who en∣tertained Bacchus in his house, obtained of him that fa∣vour, that whatsoever he touched should be turned into Gold; insomuch that by his touch the house, tables, beds, yea his meat and drink were converted into Gold: but being ready to starve desired Bacchus to take his gift a∣gain: who counselled him to wash his Body in the River Pactolus, which he did, and returned again to his former condition; and ever since that River hath had Golden sands. Afterwards being desired to be Umpeer between Apollo and Pan (or as other say Marsias) contending for superiority in Musick, Midas passed his verdict against Apollo, at which Apollo being incensed gave him Ass ears, like Pan or the Satyre; which he hid so cunningly that none knew of them but his Barbar, who would not conceal it, but proclaimed it in a Ditch, which he covered with earth, but the Canes or Reeds which grew out thereof, divulged Midas his Ass ears to all the Country.

These are also born full faced; I have seen also a Childs face after this form, which only one long ear on the right side. Born by the name of Grian-thall in Hol∣land.

Page  395XIX▪ He beareth Azure, Moses Face couped at proper, the Garment purpure. In some ancient Bi∣bles, and many pictures of our modern times, Moses is described with horns (or Rays of Glory like the Sun beams) the ground of which absurdity was a mistake of the Hebrew text on Mses descending from the Mount, upon the nearness of the words Kren cora a horn; and ••ran Luco, to shine. The vulgar translation of Exodus agrees with the former viz. Ignorabat •••cornuta esset facis ejus; He was ignorant (or wist not) that his Face was horned▪ but Iunius and Tremelius have it thus, ut ignoraret Mosche splendidum esse factam utem sacii sae. Now Moses knw not that the skin of his Face stone bright. And generally Moses was depicted by the ancients with bright hair, a very beautiful visage, with Radiant Scintillations, or sparklings up like fire in form of two Rays or horns: which in painting is called Glory.

Ater the like manner both our ancient Father, and our modern Artiss, do delineate the Heads of all Saints, and Holy Men: some with the Glory of the Sun, others with bright shining and Splendant circes: but of these I shall have more occasion to speak in the Chapter o Saints: lib 3. chap 4. to which I refer you.

He beareth B. the like Face proper. Born by the name of Fitz-Moses.

XX. He beareth Argent, a Iews head couped at the shoulders, the Cover of the Head Or, Garments Gules. Born by the name of Iewen. The Jews cover for the head, I have seen termed a Cop, and Scarffed; or a Cop Scaffed: and so both Vpton and Legh have it pag. 61.

G. an old Head in the Jews fashion couped at the shol∣ders O. is born by Otten.

XXI. He beareth Gules, a Turks head, couped at the shoulders proper, Cloathed Azure. The Turks head is always known by his Turbot, or Turkish Cap, which is nothing else but a length of fine white Linen, owled up in form of a round Cap like a ball, those of the better sort have them adorned with Feathers, and Jewells of Gold, and precious stones.

So you may term the heads of other Men according to their Contreys and Kingdoms, and according to the se∣veral forms and fashions of things wherewith they usually cover, or wear upon their heads: as you may see further in lib. 3. chap 5. in the habits of Men of most places. Such an head out of a Crown between two Wings per Fesse counter-coloured O. and B. is the Crest of Van Sun∣thausen.

B. 3 Turks faces, Wreathing of the Turbots O. and G. by Van Belo.

XXIII. He beareth Sable, a Mans head without any hair proper, with two Bats (or Dragons) Wings each side his Head expensed, Or. Some term it a bald Head couped at the shoulders, with the Ears coverted into Bats Wings expansed: which is the most com∣pendious blazon.

G. 3 such A. Wings O. is born by Baddelegh.

B the like O. is born by Bawterley.

The like head proper, Wings G. is the Crest of Van Chorleton.

XXIV. He beareth Sable, a Sarazens head couped at the shoulders, proper: adorned about the temples with a Wreath Argent and Gules, the ends turned over his head cloathed of the third, Garnished (or faced or lin∣ed) Or. This is the Crest of VVhittington of VVhitting∣ton, in Cheshire.

XXV. He beareth Vert, a Womans face proper, with a Slop on her head, and Garment couped at the shoulders, Argent. This is of some termed a Nuns head, vailed and vested: but the attire being round at the bottom makes me judge it to be rather some kind of Slop or Maunch for the head, because they used anci∣ently such a kind of Pouch at the sleeve. Some term this a French Hood pendant, or hanging backwards, or fallen back: because the usual way of wearing them, is on the head; see numb. 34. Three such heads, as here is blazoned is the Coat of Checkley.

XXVI. He beareth Argent, a Boys face proper, crined Or: couped below the shoulders, Cloathed Gules; Garnished, Or.

☞ When the couping is below the shoulders, then some parts of the Arms, and Breast appears; but if the couping be at the shoulders then only the very top of the shoulders appears, and no more: therefore care must be taken in the term, at, or below the shoulders. This is born by the name of Boyman, alias Bowman.

B. 3 such is born by the name of VVrinchill.

XXVII. He beareth Argent, Ianus his head coup∣ed at the shoulders, proper: crowned Or. This Ianus is said to be the first King of Italy, who for his Wis∣dom and knowledge of things past, and to come: was Page  396 pictured with two Faces, one looking forward and the other backward. The first old, signifying ancient days past, the other young: shew the time to come. This Coat is born by a German Family called, Luzenweise.

XXVIII. He beareth Or, an Indian head couped below the shoulders, the Head and Body adorned with various coloured Feathers. Some term it an Indian head only, taking no notice of the Feathers, because it is the•• usual way, and custom to adorn, and cover themseves with diverse coloured Feathers. This is te Crest of Captain Smith an Indian Merchant.

XXIX. He beareth Azure, a Maidens face, coup∣ed at the shoulders, Argent: Her hair attired (or platted up) and locks Curled, Or.

☞ This is more often termed by our modern He∣raulds a Maidens head, then a Maidens face: and all the reason as I can give for their so doing, is because Maids heads are generally born full Faced, and not half Faced, or three quarter Faced, and whole Faced as men u∣sually are; as the example of Mens heads and faces doth demonstrate. If so, then let the Reader please to term them which he will either heads, or faces.

This is by some termed a Damsel, or Damosills head: that is a Wench or Girdle or Countrey Lasses head; because the hair is tyed up. The Maids hair being ever born lose, as in the next example. 3 Such is the Coat of Rigmaden.

XXX. He beareth Sable, a Maids head couped at the shoulders, proper; crined, Or. Born by the name of Rgmaidn.

G. 3 such heads A. is born by Faut-le-Rov.

Some term this, a Maidens head, hair dischenelled, others, the hair pendant, and others take no notice of the hair at all, because the Maids heads are always thus drawn with the hair loose and hanging down, if it be otherwise, then to express it.

S. a Chevern O. between 3 such A. crined, and on a chief O. 3 Roses by the name of Ellis.

XXXI. He beareth Sable, a Maids head, proper; Crind and Crowned Or: Cloathed Azure, issuing out of a Cloud.

Gules, our Ladies head proper, with her hair discheveled and crowned with a Crown Or, with a Chaplet of red and white Roses about the Forehead; and in a Robe of crimson, Adorned with Gold, all within a border of Nebule, Argent. A great company ought to have a large train, and he hath fitted them with a long blazoning accordingly; else a more compendiou blazon makes it more honorable.

XXXII. He beareth Sable, a Womans head coup∣ed, Attired with a three cornered Hood, Argent. This kind of hood, or head cover, was used by Women in the time of King Edward the third; as may be seen by many Monuments made in those days, see lib. 3. chap. 1. numb. 81.

This was formerly the attire for Womens heads, which were called French-hoods: they hung down behind the head, and then were turned up to the top of the Head even to the Forehead, and there ended in a round point, or Peak: and were generally black. A cheveron Gules between 3 such heads belongs to the name of Frenchome.

The like Head and Hood, and Garment couped below shoulders G. is the Crest of Oserreicher.

XXXV. He beareth Gules, a Boys face crowned, a little ••der the shoulders, Converted into folding Leaves▪ Or Born by Trailer.

Such kind of Antique foldings is much used, by Carvers, and Stone-cutters, which is termed severally: as,

  • Fruitage, when such folding leaves have pendant from them, several sorts of fruit, as it were all in a cluster,
  • Flowerage, when Flowers and Leaves hang from them, as it were a Posey of several Flowers.

The Actions of the Hand.

The Hand with its Actions and Gestures, of all the Members of the Body, is best to be understood; for,

  • By the motion of the Right hand we crave silence: Acts 12.18. and 13.16.
  • By clapping the hands, we express a Ioy and Glad∣ness, and that we are well pleased at the thing done: 2. Kin. 11.12.

The Hand as it is comely, so it is of most singular use, and the Instruments of all Arts, for by their help there is no invention of Mans wit left unattempted, and brough to perfection; and therefore it is of all other Members, the nimblest, and most universal. Yet it is no longer a part of Man, then it can perform its functions; as Aristotle Writeth.

In the base of this quarter, having no other Room: I have caused the figures of Argus, and a Friers head endor∣sed, to be Graven; of which two persons take this short description.

The Poets say that Io or Isis, was beloved of Iupiter, who that his Wife might not suspect, turned her into the shape of a lowly Cow: which Iuno begged of Iupiter, and delivered her to be kept by the hundred eyed Argus; whose Eyes did half sleep by turns, when the other wak∣ed, and watched; Mercury by Iupiters command, through the Melody of his Pipe, lulled all his Eyes asleep and so killed him, and took away the Cow: but Iuno in revenge, sent a Gad-bee to sting her, which made Io run mad up and down the World, till she came to Egypt, where she recovered her own shape. Iuno turned Argus afterwards into a Peacock, in whose Tail are Argus Eyes still to be seen. He is a Man whom the ancients did Paint his Body, and Face full of Eyes. Argus Head is the Crest of Sewell alias Sawall.

The Fryer, is not properly either a Priest, or Lay-Man, in the Romish Religion: he is ever drawn in loose Garments, with a girdle about his middle, being shaven or shorn bare of his hair, both on his head, and face; only a circle or ring of hair compassing about his head like a Garland: which custom of so wearing their hair was first taken from the Idolatrous Priest of the Heatherns, see the whole form of a Frier, lib. 3. chap. 4. numb. 29.32.

Gules such a Heart between two Wings, Or. Born by the name of VVingham. Yet Guillims fol. 325. makes the Wings (of this Coat) come out from the sides of the heart, as if it were a flying Heart: and no other term can be given it in such a posture, but eithe a flying Heart, or two Wings conjoyned to the sides of a heart, for a heart be∣tween wings cannot properly be understood to joyne to it as you may see in the bearing of Crests.

In the base is a Demy Eye, or the half Eye, not so termed because it is cut off in the middle as in other kind of Demy bearing, but termed only a demy Eye because the one half of it is but seen.

LVII. He beareth Azure, a Mans Leg couped in the Thigh, (or middle of the Thigh) Argent. All couping above the Knee, have the Thigh part thus bend∣ing, or bowed backwards; as this is couped, so you shall have it often born erazed: as in these Coats. Yet Gllims fol. 257. draws the Legs thus couped, and era∣zed, upright: without any bending in the Knee, and holds it needless to mention the bearing thereof to be in ple, because it is natural for a Mans Leg to stand upright, but if it be born in any other sort, then to mention it.

O. such a Leg Azure; born by Haddon.

O∣thers term them three Legs with Feet, Thigh to Thigh in triangle. By the name of Trevet: derived as I suppose from the ancient name Treefeet; or three Feet.

In the Medalls of Trajan the Emperour she was fi∣gured red, sitting upon a Sphear, with the Sun in one hand, and the Moon in the other: and in the Medalls of Faustina, she is drawn with a vail, and in the right band the Globe of the World.

Bupalus of Greece, made her in shape of a Woman, with a round Ball on her Head, and a Cornu∣copia in one of her Hands, she is called the Partial Lady, or blind Goddess, by reason of her bestowing of her un∣constant, and mutable Favours. Macrobius sets her forth with Wings. and a Rudder of a Ship by her side; stand∣ing upon a wheele, holding in her right hand a Golden Ball, and in her left a Whip.

Destiny, is emblemed by a vailed naked Woman, who with great fury, with an Iron Bow ready bent, and an Arrow in it, aimes to stick Fortune even at the very heart. Fortune and Destiny can never agree, and therefore as Fortune flyes from Destiny, so Destiny pursues Fortune: and where Destiny sets her Foot, there Fortune is as it were inchanted, as having no power.

Providence, is depicted like a Lady lifting up both her Hands to Heaven: with these words in an Escrowle, Providentia Deorum, or thus a Lady in a Robe; in her right hand a Scepter, in her left a Cornucopia, with a Globe at her Fet.

This is also blazoned Ioves hand, out of a Cloud in the Dexter corner, by which he destroyed Death, and cast him into the burning Lake of fire. This may be termed Iupiters Uictory over the Prince of Ter∣rours: and Christ the Saviour of the World, his Conquest of Sin, Death, Hell, and the Grave. All which ay be understood by his saying, Hosea 13.14. O Death I will be thy Death: Reve. 21.10.14. And He cast the Devil, and Death, and Hell, into the Lake of Fire▪ So that now all the Faithful may triumph over them, and say with the Apostle. O Death where is thy Sting, O Grave where is thy Victory: Thanks be to God who hath given us the Victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1. Cor. 15.55.57.

Men Punished in Hell.

Tantalus, the Son of Iupiter, and the Nymph Plota, for his revealing he secrets of the Gods, and for the inhumane Act of Massacreing his son Pelops, was judged to Hell to be punished with want, by seeing Meat, and to have none; and with fear of a falling Rock, which was placed over his head.

Ixion, the Son of Plegias, who for muthering his Fa∣ther in law, turned a vagabond on Earth: Iupiter at length pittied him, and took him to Heaven, where he fell in love with Iuno; which Iupiter perceiving present∣ed him a Cloud in shape of Iuno, of whom he beget the Centaures. Therefore Ixion was sent down to the Earth, where braging that he had lyen with Iuno, was by Iupi∣ters Thunder cast down to Hell; where being tied to a Wheel he is continually whirled about.

He was said to reach over nine Acres of Ground.

Ocnus his punishment was to make Cords continual∣ly, and an Ass standing by him, bit the ends, as fast as he made it. This Labour and Punishment is fained from one that takes great pains to little purpose; or o one that would gladly grow rich, but he hath a shrewd Wie at home, that spends as fast as he gets.

Some do blazon it a naked Man, with his quiver at his side, hung in a Scars or Ribbon Sable, with a Bow in his Right Hand Or, his Head turned into the shape or form of a Stag, proper. And some again more briefly; a Naked Man with a Stags head, proper: with a Bow in his right Hand Or, and a quiver and scarf Sable. But in the term, or name of Acteon, all these expressions are under∣stood. For this Man was a great hunter, who by mishap spied Diana washing her self, was by her (for fear of his discovering it) turned into a Stag, who was forth with set upon, and torn in peeces by his own Hounds.

☞ Here note that all Persons Metamorphosied (let the shape be what it will, whether Dog, Cat, Lyon, Wolfe, Bear, or Bull &c.) in these draughts, and depictings in History or Armory, they still retain their name and Bodily shape, to shew that they were i∣ther Men or Women: and the Head only Meta∣morphosied, or changed into that shape, that they were by the Poets fained to be in the whole Body turned to.
