Liber XII

Isidore of Seville or their common origin of the Etymologies OF THE BISHOP OF BOOK OF 12


I, AND OF THE PECORIBVS IVMENTIS. [1] for all living things first know the meaning conveyed to the man, do I call the name of a present to every one according to the condition of the institution of nature to which should serve. [2] but that the Gentiles to every one of animals out of their own languages;. But it does not, according to his tongue and his Latin in Greek, or whatsoever, among the barbarous nations they set them on the names of the man, but in the language which before the flood, were all of one, which is called the Hebrew. [3] In Latin they are the living creatures, animate and inanimate been said, that animated the life of the spirit of and are moved. [4] four, being called, and the four feet, because their course upon this: they are similar and this, when the cattle, under the care of the human, however, there are none: as an hart, fallow deer, wild asses, and so on. But neither they are but beasts, that of a lion, nor beasts of burden, as the use of men they can help. [5] that the flock, we call everything and statues, like the tongue of men are without result. Strictly speaking, however the name of these beasts of cattle is wont to adcommodari which are either suitable for food, like sheep and pigs, or for use by men, like horses and oxen. [6] But it differs among the cattle, and to victims; but in common to the For the ancients, the signification of all the animals of cattle, they said; the cattle 's only, those living creatures which they are edible, as it were pecuedes. In general, it; everything alive by feeding him was called herd, from the. [7] the names of the cattle he dragged that our work or burdens by their help in carrying or plowing be my joy. For the ox draws the waggon, and the clods of the share, a most cruel of the earth now turned the horse and the ass carry burdens, and that of men in the toil on with walking. And so also the beasts of burden are called from that which can help the men: for they are creatures of mighty strength. [8] Likewise, and herds of, or because they are fit for arms, that is, for war, or that we use them in arms. Others only the herds of oxen, do understand, from the plowing, as it were aramenta [or because they are armed with horns]. But there is a distinction between the herds and the flocks of: for the herds of horses and oxen are, and the flocks of goats and sheep. [9] A sheep wool of the tender cattle, an unarmed body, the breath of calm, from the offering has been said to him, since among the ancients [in the] first you have not a bull, but sheep for the sacrifice of slay. From all this certain sacrificial sheep, which they call them, which are among their eight are higher than the two teeth which have a pagan, in most of all a sacrifice. [10] from the powers of another weather or what was said that the greater intensity of the rest of the sheep, or that one be a man, that is, a male, or that at the head of the worm may have, of which the itching, stimulated by one another to shake, and fighting with the strike with great violence. [11] or apo tou ram BE DRY, that is, from Mars, called to be: thus, with us among the flocks of the males the males are said to: or, that this is the first herd, from the Greeks, is offered in sacrifice to the altars. The ram, which place their altars. And so is that (Sedul. 1,115):

The ram is sacrificed to the altar.

[12] although the Lamb and by the Greeks call apo tou the Lamb, as it were a pious, of the Latin But it was just to have a name they think this, because the reason that because the mother of other living creatures the recognition; so much so that even if it is a large flock, have gone astray, to the bleating of immediately recognizes the voice of the parent. [13] by eating from the Haedus called for againe. Infants just ones are very fat and taste delicious charming they are, from whence [, and to eat, and so] he took the and is called Adar. [14] an animal and a goat is a wanton and being fervent in the wild are ever towards the carnal union; on account of whose eyes look towards the lust in desire for the transverse, whence its name attached to him. For sexual cravings are of the corner of the eyes, according to Suetonius (Prat. 171); whose nature is so very hot, as the adamant stone is the stone that he had, nor fire, nor iron so expert to tame it is worth the matter, blood alone will dissolve. The great ones are said to he-goats, from the river of the Cinyphian Cinyphe in Libya and, where the great are born. [15] from the she-goats, and goats on gathering, the undergrowth of some have maintained. Others say that it acquire harsh to us. Not a few from the clashing of the legs, and so was called the crepes them and these are the wild she-goats, which the Greeks virtue of this that they have very sharp, that is, OKSUDERKESTERON, DORKA have called. Abide in the high hills for us, and though from afar, but it seems so all who come. [16] Now the same and goats: the same wild goats, Avicia, as it were, because he had on the pattern of the thickets, and the high places of birds, hold and dwell in them? To a high, so that from the loftiness of the gazes of scarce human should be open for. [17] And so wild goats and the southern part of the birds are those who, the flowing of the Nile they are gone. This, therefore, the living creatures, as we have said, in the rocks of the high places of residing there, and if at any time of wild beasts or of men feel adversity, from the highest of peaks of rocks shall be plunging themselves in their own [himself] lived unharmed through the horns of the receive. [18] of the said the Stag KERATON apo ton, that is, from the horns of; KERATA the horns of the are said for the Greek. These are the enemies of serpents, when they feel weighed down by weakness, the spirit of them they take them out of the nostrils out of the holes, and overcome the destruction of their poison with the food is repaired. Dittany the grass they have projected; have been fed for at that it receive them rid themselves of the arrows. Marvel at the sound of the pipes. [19] the ears of Shameless, diligently and carefully hear, the low nothing. If at any time or accumulate large rivers to swim across the seas, the heads of the buttock that go before them and they help each succeeding beyond the spare no paines weight of their senses. [20] Tragelaphi called by the Greeks, who, when they be such as to the same species of deer, villous and yet they have so that the flanks of his he-goats, and the minds promises, hair all over their beards, who, not elsewhere, than in those about the "pheasants. [21] are the children of young roes that are deer, [from the of the said to imply that, because the mere will of mother 's and concealing themselves]. [22] fallow deer, being called, and that out of the hand to flight by a fearful animal "and" unfit for war, of which Martial (13,94):

It is feared the boar attacks with his fang, is defended the horns of the ccrvum;
What have you dainty deer we are the prey?

[23] Hare, Lightfoot, and quickly because it is running. And so, both in Greek for the course of BIRD is said to shortly I must for the animal is timid, and has sufficiently. [24] The mines in the country of animals of the said kind of like a little dog, because dogs are to be taken with nets or be excluded from the caves. [25] The sow that was been said, that may force the pasture, that is the land brought under subjection to let him seek after food. O Verres, that he has great strength. Pig, as it were nasty. For the mire and gorges, immerse clay and mud that it is applied. Horace (The Epistle of 1,2,26):

And a friend of clay pig.

[26] Hence, too, or of sticks, called the bastards. We call the hair of age of swine, and from the age of his words: from whom also are called cobblers, as much as bristles forth his ice, that is, consuant, the skins of. [27] from the fierceness of the boar called to be, taken away and replaced by the letter f, P. And so also the SUAGROS among the Greeks, that is, the fervor, it is said. For everything that is, which is untamed, unmerciful, and, loosely, we call the wild. [28] bullock what was said that to help insure their use of the land with agricultural operations, or because among the Gentiles to Jupiter invencus inmolabatur always and everywhere, never a bull. For even with the victims of age was a consideration. Taurus, the name of a Greek, and so does these?. [29] the Indian bulls is of a tawny color, the speed of the bird, the hairs to the contrary winds being changed; circumflectunt the head of flexibility which we desire; the hardness of the rear all they desire is a weapon with harsh ferocity. [30] An ox or a BOUN they say the Greeks. This man of the Latin stars were so called because the land issue, as it were terionem. Naevius (trag. 62):

Bears the moderator here a rustic.

Its latitude color of their skins, from the chin to the legs dewlaps, they are said, from the skin itself, as it were pellearia, which is a sign of good breeding in with an ox. Of oxen, his rare filial devotion in his comrades; now the one the other he inquires, with whom he is wont to lead off the neck of the plows, and a frequent bellowing, testifies that the affection of a pious if by any chance shall have failed. [31] Vidi said, as if boacca. For it is from the character of the mobiles of the names, as a lion a lion, but the dragon Dracaena. [32] The calf and the heifer, from the fresh and greene, are called to, that is, a green age, just as a staff. , Therefore, to be a heifer of a small and not yet given birth to: for thou who didst bring the heifer is a cow, or. [33], called by the derivation of a buffalo, that they are like the bulls; so much so that, in comparison of an untamed ferocity to the yoke their necks had not, they may receive. [34] Africa, creates these. Uri, the wild oxen, they are in Germany, and have a horns, stretching out to such an extent that the capacity of a striking of the month of the king 's of them WORKER BEE things be done. [Dict OREON of Uri, the apo ton, that is, from the mountains.] [35] gave a name to the cause of camels, or that when the victims to the burden, as the humble and meek, and shorter than the come to pass, reclining, because the Greeks common father of a low and a short time, they say, or because the curve is the back. KAMOUR the Greek is the word which signifies a curved piece. These have it in for other districts and they send, but Arabia, most of them. Differ, however, to himself; Arabic for two of every sort on the back of truffles they have, the countries of each of the other. [36] Dromeda kind of camels, the younger, indeed, of the stature, but quicker. And so also has a name that, for the SPARTAN RACECOURSE in Greek and the speed of the course is called. For a hundred thousand, and more, is wont to go in one day. That an animal, just as an ox, and sheep, and the camels, the cud. [37] is so called chewing the cud [is] from the Ruma, projecting from the parts of the throat, through which the food should be set at liberty he is recalled for certain animals. [38] from the donkey and the young ass of the said sitting still, as if asedus: but this name ", which is more fitting for their horses, for that reason he took this animal: Before the horses they caught the men, they began to preside over it to this. An animal for slow and by no means resisting, he was as soon as he did he want and spread it under a man. [39] A wild ass wild donkey of a donkey is interpreted. ONON an ass, they call for the Greeks: AGRION a wild one. These Africa, has a great and untamed, wandering about, and in the desert. Let each of the flocks, while women are over. Coming to birth and the testicles of the males and their little jealous of the bite of hacked, that the mothers caventes them in the secrets of places is obscured. [40] the said Arcadian asses, because he had been carried from Arcadia, the first are the high and the high. Minor, moreover, the young ass of the field more than he is an indispensable, because it and the labor of the negligence of bears with it and almost does not object. [41] The horses of the said, because he had when the team were joined together, level with, and Even the form of the course, and such like he was connecting. [42] caballus before the said Capo, for the sake of the hoof of that is going concavet fixed on the earth, that the other animals do not have. [43] From this and his charger, and the feet of sounds. The longevity of the horses of many things: For men rejoice in the fields of; He smells the battle; are raised with the sound of trumpet to a close engagement with the voice of the course was kindled for the appeal; they grieve the defeated to one; surpass in the rejoice with. Even if the enemy in time of war they feel, so much so that the bite of the adversaries ask for them: Some peculiar to recognize his masters, they had forgotten if they are changed of meekness; the back of some "except the Lord they admit none: them that are slain, or dying, many weep for their masters. The soil is the horse for the sake of man tears at the emotion of grief and feel the loss. And so [and] in the centaurs of horses and men are intermingled. [44] as a matter of deep distress or of horses or readiness of view of future events to gather to battle with. Your age, aged Persian horses, Hunnicis, the Epirotes, the Sicilians, and in the years to more than fifty, but shorter than the Spaniards and the French Numidians, and a general view is that. [45] In the horses of good pedigree, so that as the ancients said, the four are seen: a form, the beauty of, the merit of and color. The form of, so that the body is to be valid and solid, the height of his strength of fitting, the side of a long, narrow and round most of all the haunches, and the breast an open far and wide, the body of the density of all the muscles are knotted, and the horn of the foot of the concave surface of dry stable. [46] The beauty, that it may be the head of a small and dry, the skin near the bones sticking, ears, short and neat, the eyes large, the nostrils spreading, the neck erect, and tail, thick hair, the hoofs of solidity of their round shape '. [47] The merit of, as be of good courage, bold, with quivering members, which is of strength is a sign, from the most high and those who can easily be stirred up quietly, and / or stirred up is bound to not be difficult for haste. But the movements and in the ears of the horse is understood, the strength in the members of trembling. [48] The color of this one is chief, as a show: Badius, golden, rosy, myrtle, of a deer, CREAM-COLORED, gray, dappled, light gray, brilliant white, the white, guttatus, black. And on the following order, the different "distinct" from the black badioque; the rest of the color or gray worst speaker. [49] then he, Badius gage Now the ancients used to say, that is between the more strongly let him go, all the other animals. He is the spadix, whom they call the phoenicatum: and the said spadix from the color of a palm tree, which they call the spadicam the Sicilians. [50] Glaucus, the painted, is like the having eyes and the brightness of a certain bathed. For glaucus old said he was. But the dun color is whitish, and comes from Melos. Guttatus, the intervention of a white with black points. [51], and a white radiance, but they differ in one another. For the ordinary white with a sort of paleness is: is white like snow, but the pure, shining light poured over him. Light gray, canus the said, because out of a white color and black. Dappled is so called because the spheres, which they haue between the purple robes of bright white. [52] Varius, but that may have the colors of the ways of odd. But he that for white feet only, they have, called petili, who the front of a white, hot. [53], is commonly called cervinus, guaranen they say. Aeranen the same as the common folk call, which, like a aerial is of color. Oppressed with the myrtle, however, is in the purple. [54] Dosina But what was said that his is the color of an ass: the same, and of ashes. But there are the rustic These were of the kind of a beginning, so equiferos whom we say, and, consequently, to the dignity of the city can not pass to. [55] Mauron is black;; black MAURON For the Greeks call it. The manna of a horse but shorter than the [is], whom they call the common people brunicum. SWIFT HUNTING-HORSE the ancient said, that they can ride the carts of, that is, to lead on public roads and / or that they run, and the carts of by means of which she was wont to go. [56] of the horse there are three kinds: the one by a noble, fit for battles and burdens; other, the everyday, and for riding, to the a common, not to ride and to fit for the third, since the admixture of a different kind is rising, it is also said that because the HYBRID is born out of diverse, such as the mule. [57], however, mule, along, from the Greek word "has. For in Greek it this or that slow the yoke of the baker had he been driven GRINDING lead unto the round about the jaws. The Jews say that Ana, grandson of Esau, herds of mares by the ass in the desert, he himself hath done have gone up to the first, as a result new mules against the nature of the animal would have been born. Wild asses were also to be admitted to this end to the the asses: and the same kind he had found his bed, so that swift out of these would have been born of an ass. [58] Industry as men 's various animals were forced in sexual intercourse, and so to the mingling of the counterfeit kind of found something else, just as contrary to nature, and Jacob, he procured the likenesses of colors. For the sheep of the fetus such concipiebant of that, as the rams of the waters from above, that go up in the mirror, considered. [59] Finally, and this gives the same injunction in the herds of mares to be made it is said, that some may object, gentlemen, with eyes that of the one conceiving horses, those which are about to conceive and to create "they may be. For the lovers of pigeons and they put the most beautiful embroidered doves in the same places in which that they are present, which carried it off like a vision to be generated. [60] Hence it is that a certain child saw no bids women to look at the basest character of animals countenances, such as cynocephaloi and apes, came in the way with eyes that do not like to let them bear the fetus. For this is that the nature of the women perceive to as what the nature or they formed an idea of pleasure at the end of the heat, when they are conceived, and such, and gives birth to offspring. In truth, in the use of an animal from outside the forms of Venus, transmits within, and their printed hath been glutted snatches away their images into its own quality. Among living things the bigenera things are those which are born out of diverse, such as the mule from a mare and an ass; the burdon of a horse and the donkey; hybrida from the wild boar and hogs, Tityrus from the sheep and he-goat; musmo from the goat, and a ram on every. But there is leader of the flock.

2. Of the beasts. [1], properly speaking, the word of wild beasts, to lions, leopards, tigers, wolves and foxes and dogs and apes and the rest of the very thing which the mouth of rage in that blest his nails, except snakes. Of the beast from the force of the said, by which the rage in that blest. [2] The beasts usually call him that from natural desire to make use of their freedom, and borne along by their. For there are of the free woman of will, and this way and that which the mind is flit about and shall marry, because they are carried. [3] The name lion, leo from Greek origin, is altered into Latin. LEONES for in Greek it is called, and it is a genuine word, because on the part corrupt. The lioness, the entire Greek, and so does Dracaena. "But that the lioness the lioness had borrowed it be said by the poets. , But Leo, in Greek, in Latin means "the king, because of all shall be that the prince of the beasts. The genus is said to trifarium. [4] One of their short, mane crispa are dainty; a simple and locks, long fierce. Our minds in their brow and tail show. The power of them in the heart, the strength of in the head. Of September, the hunters of the land from the survey qno seen this, hunting spears, may be deterred by the less. Fear the noise of wheels, but more frightened by fire. [5] When they sleep, watch for the eyes; with the walk, the tail of his own on its traces, cover them not to hunter to find it. When a cub to have issue, for three days and three nights to sleep is said to a young, then to the senators or a roar, roar, trembling with fear, as it were, resting place is said to raise up a cub to the place of sleeping. [6] Where men are concerned the nature of the lions' is that, unless they can not be angry when a man injures. For it is clear the mercy of their endless examples. They spare being overthrown in; allow the captives to return home whom he met; man who had not, without great kill with hunger. Touching such things as Lucretius, (5,1035):

Scymnique of the lions.

[7] the Tigris is so called because the fowl of panic and flight, for this is what they call the Persians and the Medes at an arrow. It is a beast with various markings, and the speed of the power of wonderful by whose name the the river is called the Tigris, and it is the most rapid of all rivers. Hyrcanus in the more these is generative. [8] the said Panther, or because he is a friend of all animals, except for the dragon, or because of its own kind, and He rejoiced, and the society to the same receives the likeness of whatever pays it back. For all the PAN in Greek it is said. A beast the little wheel superpicta minutes, so that with eye circles of yellow, black or white is distinguished with variety. [9] This is the only time that 's benefit; whose excuse in this case is manifest. For when in a young mother 's womb coaluere maturisque to their births are powerful forces, they hate to the season of delays, and so laden with the young ones that veils her womb, her time as a tear with their nails: pour it out upon that part of, or rather leave the, such as pain compels him. So the replacement is corrupted and the seed of a genital organ of whip scars was infused into the seats does not cling to themselves, but been wasted, flies to pieces. For Pliny (NH 8,43) speak of an animal, with sharp claws to obey a crowded it can not be infected for things moving themselves within the cubs. [10] Pants after the Panther is the second, a race the swiftest and mottled and headlong to the blood. Leap to death begins to fail. [11] Leopard of adultery the fierce lion, and the leopard is born, and a third of the origin of are brought about; as and Pliny in the Natural History (8,42) says, with the lion, a leopard, a lioness, or the leopard to have sex with and sexual intercourse from both degenerate offspring are created, such as the mule and the burdon . [12] Rhinoceron he was called by the Greeks. In a Latin version into the nostrils of the horn. The same and monoceron, that is, and one horn, the horn of him that "one" in the middle of the forehead, four feet, so it has a sharp and strong, so that, whatever inpetierit, or fan, or perforate her. For even when the elephants Often a dispute he hath, and one that is slain in the belly of overthrow. [13] moreover, of such strength to be the power of the hunters that no shall be arrested, but, as they affirm, who wrote the natures of living creatures, O virgin of the girl in charge, which opens the bosom of his coming, with which he laid aside the head of any display of ferocity he sets down, and so to have taken my rest as if disarmed is captured. [14] an elephant by the Greeks the size of the body was called consider that they prefer the men of the form of the mountain; for in Greek it is called the mountain of LOFOS. In India, however at the voice of Barro is called, and so also the voice of his WAR CRY OF THE GERMANS, and the teeth of the oppressed. The beak, however the trunk of it is said, because he brings near to the mouth of them with the food: and it is a snake like that, fortified by the last cast a trench with an ivory. [15] These oxen, Luke, was named after the ancient to the Romans: the oxen, because there is no larger animal is, seemed to have Luke, who was in Lucania them, Pyrrhus was the first in the battle to block the Romans. , For this class animals also contained in it is apt to matters of war; in them says, the Persians and the Indians laid and towers of wood and, as it were, from the wall, fight with javelins. The understanding and the memory of autein with all speed. [16] in flocks they march; motion by which the well worth the advantage, a mouse was almost over; mate together, turned away; When, however, ready to bring forth, in the waters or in the Isle because of the dragons they send the young, because my enemies and from them are entangled in and put to death; moreover to carry the two years of her brood, no more than once the majority do not produce, but to one only; they live [but] three hundred years. With India and for Africa alone, were born before the elephants; them but now a solitary India is generative. [17] is called gryphons, that it is an animal winged and four-footed. "This kind of wild beasts at the Hyperborean is born of the mountains. All the lions are part of the body; face of an eagle with his wings and the like; vehemently hostile to horses. For men seen in the temple and in pieces. [18] chamaeleons has not just one color, but the different is the variety of consparsus, as a leopard. The appointment was made Superior of this, a true chameleon the colors which the corpuscle to the very easy to see the conversion of varied, that of other animals it is not so easy to to the conversion of the grossness of the. [19] the said GIRAFFE is that when they let it be as a leopard with white spots superaspersus, off the neck of his horse like that, the feet of those of an ox, the head of the camel, however, is there the like. This Ethiopia is generative. [20] the said lynx, because in the kind of wolves are numbered; back of the beast with spots of distinct as a leopard, but he is like a wolf, and hence he LUKOS, this lynx. Turn them toward the urine of this hardness of the stone most precious, they say, who is called the lyncurius, which was also to feel themselves have learned this is proved in this document. For the liquid sands have amassed, in so far as they were able, cover, a kind of envy of such a character was not WASTING passes over into the human use. The younger Pliny, have learned this he says (cf. 8,43 NH) is outside the one bring forth young, not to do any. [21] from the Castor and Pollux being castrated has been said. For the testicles of their medicines and be fit to be the cause of the praesenserint with the hunter in, they castrate themselves and the bites of their ability, they cut off. Cicero, in his touching such things as Scauriana (2:7): '; they had, rather to redeem this part of the body, for the sake of that which is most sought after. " Juvenal (12,34):

Those who declared themselves
He doeth the eunuch, hoping to escape damage,
the testicles.

[22] They are they, and fibers, by which the dogs are called the Pontic. Is said to bear of their own mouth, so called because it forms the of her brood, began as it were. For is said that they generate the unsightly parts, and the flesh than a mother to be born a certain licks up and keeps the members in the. And so is that:

Thus is formed the tongue, bring forth young, he took out with a bear.

But this rapid parts of face; in short, thirty days after conception. And so it happened that the fecundity of the unsightly down the precipices, to breed. Vrsorum head is not strong; greatest strength lies in its arms and loins; erect this reason bears sometimes ceasing altogether. [23] The wolf in the Greek of a derivation is transferred to our language. For to him that wolves LUKOUS they say: LUKOS from the virtues of the Greek for is called, that the madness of mutual hatred kill the rapacity, and which shall find. Others summoned the wolves as it were leopos they say, that like a lion, so be to him to the feet of the power of, and so also to suppress whatever foot is not alive. [24] The wolf is rapacious desires is borne of blood remains on the beast, and, of which they say country people to destroy a man's voice, if there was prior to the wolf shall see. And so the dumb, and he suddenly it is said: 'The wolf in the fable. " Surely, if he had foreseen; perceive it, the boldness of savagery, he deposes. Wolves, during the whole year, not more than twelve days together; carry the hunger for a long time, and after long fasts eat a large amount. Ethiopia sends that wolves maned neck, and so much that none of the various absent the color of them may say:. [25] The Latin name for dog, seems to have the etymology of the Greek; KUON for in Greek it is called. Although him a certain song from the barking of think that was called, because he sounds in and so also the play on instruments. For there is nothing to the dogs a keener and more than all the other animals for the sense they have. [26] For the only recognize their own names; and love their masters; a mistress' home defenders of a state for their own masters, they bar themselves to death; his own will with the Lord to the prey, run; of his body of the Lord even after death are not left without. The last is external to man is nature, but is not possible. In the it to the dogs there are two things: either the strength of, or the speed of. [27] The young are said to also applied, improperly whatsoever, of wild beasts of the Son. Strictly speaking, they are like young dogs, by a decrease of the said. [28] Lyciscus, however, say, says Pliny (cf. 8,148), the dogs were born of wolves and dogs out, since the chance she hath mingled. Of India the women are wont also to the dogs in the woods at night, bound to them to be admitted to breed with wild tigers, from which the insiliri, and to be born out of the same in the brood of the bravest and most dogs so strong that with the surrounding of lions in the first prostrate ourselves. [29] The fox said, as if pleasure. For there is a volume on their feet, and never the roads right angles, but is running with the bends tortuous, deceitful enemies' treacherous to deceive an animal. For while he has never for the prey, the death of fashions, and so coming down, as the birds of the dead body to the snatches and devours them. [30] is the name of a Greek monkey, that is checked by the tight nose, and so also the apes, we say, that there may be and nostrils suppressing the face of rigor after they had shamefully with wrinkles like a bellows, though they may be pressed and chapels, to have nothing but nose. Others in the Latin language called apes urbitrantur, because he had the likeness of many things which are of human reason is felt, but it is false. [31] These are the new keenly aware of the elements rejoice when the moon, the middle and they grieve for the hollow. The fetus is so, whom they love, carry them about in front of him; about the mother of those overlooked were stuck fast. None of these varieties and five, of which his tailed ape have tails; for a monkey with a tail is, which some call the monkey. [32] are villous on the Sphinx, with streaming hair, the teats are prominent, capable of learning and to forget their wild.

4. OF THE SERPENTIBVS. [1] Snake word for all kind of serpent that can be bent and contorqui: and from thence it is a snake that gaunt, and never rightly. However, there are snakes, for the Gentiles were familiar with the minds of the places have been held ever shall be, from which Persius (1,113):

Ping two snakes: "Children, is the place of the sacred.

[2] The snake is was said by him, which is enough to worship the shades, and / or that the extension in a slippery ways of winding, sinuous slip and fall. For whatever it is said a slippery slithers when you hold, like a fish, a serpent. [3] 'Now the serpent has received the name of the secret creeps up, not by visible steps, but crept along the effort for the smallest scales. And those who were They try to the four feet, just as the lizard and stiliones, not snakes, but reptiles are named. But the creeping things of the serpents, they are, for the winds that creep, and breast. So many of these how many kinds of poisons, how many kinds is the bane of so many by so much suffering has the color of how many. [4] greater than the dragon of all of serpents, or of all the living creatures upon the earth. DRAKONTA they call this the Greeks, and so also is derived into Latin as a dragon would be said. Who, though often drawn forth from caves is carried into the air, the air is turbulent, because of him. Has a crest, a small mouth, and the art of the pipes, through which it breathes and the tongue that it exerts. Its strength lies not in the teeth, but in its tail, and the word rather than beneath the gaping jaws is harmful. [5], however, is that an innocent man from the poisons, but for this reason be made to her for the death of poisons that it is not necessary, because if a man be bound to death. By whom, are safe for the not even the elephant with its huge size; lurking on the paths of the Even in the matter, through which the elephants used to have their course, their legs fastened to the knots, and kills them by suffocation. But it is produced in Ethiopia and India in the very heights of the burning fires of his. [6] A basilisk in Greek, in a Latin version a basilisk, because the king of serpents, it is, so much so that when they saw him, let them flee, because it kills them with its scent, for and that the man or if he looking at him. If, indeed, the sight of his no bird can fly lived unharmed through passes, but at what a distance to him, his burnt up to be up and devoured in the mouth. [7] A, however, is overcome by weasels, which the men there, they infer that the holes where they in hiding; And so, having a vision, flees; the persecutes and to death. For there is nothing the Creator has made without a remedy. There is a half a foot in length,; with white stripes. [8] But the rule, just as the stings of scorpions and dry and which are waiting on, and now that have come to water, and the lymph UDROFOBOUS they do. [9], who is the same as a hissing, and the rules. With a hiss, for it kills, before it bites or burns. [10] a result the viper been said, that by force prepares for it. For even when in his belly, to groan on to the birth, young do not of nature, waiting for an early solution of conrosis their sides with the mother, they break out by force in destruction. Lucan (6,490):

A result the viper mate together, and, after breaking the body, of the knob.

[11], it is said, however, that a male inserted in her mouth expuat the seed of the viper; comes from pleasure, and she turned to frenzy of desire in the the head of the reception of the mouth of the sea cut off. The result is that both my parents were to die; a male, while the thickens, while the forth, a woman. From the paste, a viper, there are made, who are called by the Greeks THERIAKOI. [12] a snake being called, and that the poisons with its bite and toss inmittat; IOS For the Greeks they say the poison, and from thence a snake, the bite of a poisoned that kill. There are various kinds and species, and with different effects only for harm. It is reported that a snake, when he shall begin to suffer enchanters, who it calls forth some of their own songs in order that she produces from its cave: the former, to come out, he will not, one ear to the ground exerts pressure, and blocks and other with its tail and work, and [thus] the voices of those magic does not go forth that heareth not: to the charming him. [13] snake of thirst, a kind of asp of the Latin and bucket, it is said, for he whom it bites, the thirst is left undone. [14] Hypnalis, a kind of asp, so called because sleep kills them quickly. Decided on this, he proceeded to Cleopatra, and thus death as if by sleep. [15] Haemorrhois an asp, so called because it is the blood of those who let him labor and free from death and has been, so that the dissolution of the veins, whatever there is life, by the blood of acts of. For in Greek it is called the blood of AIMA. [16] in Prestim a snake with its mouth always vaporanti of the patent and is running. The poet remembers, so (Lucan. 9,722):

Distending her face and eager for the smoking "Prestim.

Here is distended by the strike which, put to death the grossness of enormique; extuberatum For it follows rottenness. [17] POISONOUS SNAKE, CORROSIVE a snake, it bites a man who, while they, at once, destroys him, so that the entirely into fluid in the mouth of the serpent. [18] An adder serpent was said, because he had at the head of the like he has horns of rams: the horns of the KERATA For the Greeks call: but they are of four little horns, to him, of which the display of, as it were, the meat, entice those who were acted on animals kills. For the whole body to be covered he hit the sand, nor did any of his token of it grants, except the part which has attracted the birds or the animal is admissible. It bends more than other snakes, so that the thorn does not seems to have. [19] SMALL ROLLER the serpent being called, and that so great a variety of gleams forth, and the rear of the Notes as the grace of looking up to retards the pigrior crawling on and because it is these we catch up with is not valid, a miracle of his astonished, and is admissible. So great was the fervor that even after the severity of the winter the time of the spoils of my needs to expose the body of the running. Out of which Lucan (9,717):

SMALL ROLLER And still sprinkled with frost but now a solitary
the spoils of my position, I advised.

[20] amphisbaena said, because he has two heads, one in its place, the other for a tail, the head of running out of both, a space of circular of the body. This one alone of commits of serpents, it faces the cold, first of all the proceeding. Of which too the Lucan (9,719):

And, terrible to the AMPHISBAENA the head of a twin on the two sides.

[21], as it were, whose eyes glow of the lamp. Enhydris the snake in the water living; UDOR the water for the Greeks call it. [22] a water serpent, Hydro, of whom is struck by obturgescunt; boam disease to which a person they say, because the dung of an ox. [23] Hydra, a dragon with many heads, such as it was the swamp of Lerna in the province of Arcadia. These things in Latin snake it is said, that in one, with the murder grew from the three heads that were. But this is fabulous, is true, for it is established a Hydra was a place for the waters of the evomentem, laying waste to the neighboring cities, in which, in one passage he is shut, are an outburst of many: that Hercules when he saw the terrain too has consumed, and thus water shut the beam. Cover: For by the water is made. [24] snakes the serpent, who is also WATER SNAKE, ðcerimð as it were, because that on the waters and upon the earth abides; for Kherson they say the land of the Greeks, UDOR water. Here the land through which it falls and smoke rising he does, than in that describes the Macer, (8):

Or the back of the foaming exhales poison,
or the land of smoking, which the snake glides DISGUSTING.

And Lucan (9,711):

Dragged the way of smoking snakes.

But always walks directly, for, if tortured him, while the is running, is set tinkling at once. [25] Natrix the serpent poison infecting the water it, for in the fountain has been, inmiscit him by poison. Out of which Lucan (9,720):

Natrix violator of water.

[26] Cenchrae inflexuosa the serpent, which always makes the right path. Lucan, of what (9,712):

And he was always a straight path cencliris decay shall know.

[27] Paris the serpent which is always on the tail, and walks a furrow as doing it. Of whom the same Lucan (9,721):

The furrow the content with the way the tail thou shalt bring forth.

[28] Boas, a snake of Italy, the huge size, the flocks of herds, and pursues a buffalo, or with milk and a very great WATERING binds himself with the breasts and he destroys the sugens, and from thence from the depredations of the boas of oxen, got its name. [29] the serpent like a dart flying. Out of which Lucan (9,720):

Iaculique birds.

For leap forth on the trees, and while some animal, you meet him, to throw himself upon him, and kill it, and so also bore the name of the arrow. In Arabia there are serpents, with wings, which are called sirens, which is more run by horses, but also, and are said to fly; of which is so great a man as death, than you die before you follow upon their sorrow. [30] SERPENTINE been said, that has the color of grains of sand. , Of what poet (Lucan. 9,714):

How small her painted with spots of Thebes, SERPENTINE
wear the color of burnt out and indiscriminately hit the sand,

[31] a small POISONOUS SNAKE The serpent, which not only the body but the bones consumed by the poison. The poet remembers, so (Lucan. 9,723):

Overthrow the bones are CORROSIVE POISONOUS SNAKE with the body.

[32] of so great a of Dipsas of littleness is said to the serpent, so that when trodden underfoot, he does not appear. Whose than extinguishes the poison had been previously should find it that the face death shall prevent it, nor sorrow it takes on the die at all. The poet says of of the (Lucan. 9,737):

Bearer of the young man Aulus Tuscan 's blood
the head of a crooked back and bit him tread down the snake of thirst:
scarce or is the sense of the dens was.

[33] Salpuga the serpent, is one which does not seem to. Caecula said, for the sake of it is because with a small and it does not have the eyes. CENTIPEDE from the large number of feet above. [34] is a kind of reptile lizard, called to be such a way that has arms. The genera of lizards more: we as botrax, the salamander, the saura and the newt. [35] Botrax been said, that he has the face of the frogs; while the Greeks BATRACHON frogs which they call. [36] Salamander being called, and that is over against the fires of it is worth. Among all whose poison of all venomous there is the greatest force of the rest for each find their mark, this destroys the very many together. For if a tree that has crept into, are all fruits infects the poison, and those that were killed ederint, who also was or if he falls into a well, do you want the drinkers were put to death one of its poison. It resists fire, extinguishes the fires alone among creatures; for he ever lives in the midst of the flame and finishing without pain, and not only because it is not inflamed, but the fire out. [37] the upper of Saura, who when it grows old, his eyes are blinded, and enters it in the opening of the wall of the observer towards the east and the rising of the sun and to make plain he intends to. [38] from the color of the newt has a name attached to Him, for it is shield of painted with shining spots in the manner of of the stars. Of whom Ovid (Metam. 5,461):

the color and apt
It is named, the body of the drops of various stars.

Here, however, be so hostile to scorpions when they saw him as the fear of these things may bring and sloth. [39] There are also other kinds of serpents, so that ammodytae, elephantia, chamaedracontes. Finally, how much of the names, the number of merely that he died. All the snakes, by its very nature are cold they are, nor him beat him except when it warms up. [40] For when the cold, they will, they will touch no, and so also their poison day than by night more than they hurt. Grow cold of the night, and rightly so, because of the night are cold they are wet with dew. In the they bring to regard themselves as the vapor of plagues and of the body are cold are cold by nature, and so also are slow to resolve the knots in the winter, in summer are loosed. [41] Hence it is that while the serpent: the venom, whoever is struck, is amazed at the first, and later, when it itself, in that, being warmed with the poison of anger shall be kindled, extinguishes the state of man. The poison has been said, however, because he had through the veins he goeth; infused for plague, as the quickening of the body through the veins of increased dispersed in different directions and drives out life. [42] could be the poison so it does not hurt unless it shall touch the blood. Lucan (9,614):

With a mixture of noxious serpent also has the blood of the plague.

For all the poison is cold, and for that reason the soul, which is the fiery, flees from the poison will serve cold. , In natural good things, which to us and we see that this living thing of irrational in common, a certain sense of quickness of the serpent excels. [43] And so also we read in the Book of Genesis (3,1): '' Now the serpent was wiser than all the beasts of the earth. " But he says, Pliny, if we believe it, that the head of a snake even if it had escaped with two fingers, none the less he lives. And so also for the whole throw his body to head against its assailants. [44] Serpents were less capable he was seen by all. A rare thing in front of them, nor without cause, when in the front of their eyes are not they may have, but in times of such an extent did hear better than all the more quickly they will regard it. No other creature in the tongue moves with such speed so that the serpent, so much so that it seems to have a triple tongue, since one would. [45] are the bodies of snakes is moist, so that wherever they go, as to designate their path with moisture. The marks of serpents, is such as to, they seem to lack with the feet, flanks and the effort for repant scales, from one end of which the throat to the lowest looseness of the bowels disposed to receive the equal way. For the scales as if on claws, as if on legs are supported by the ribs. [46] And so if in any part of the body from the belly is as far as at the head of a blow, it crushes, it is disabled and he can not have, because where the blow should fall, let the thorn he paid, the ribs through which the feet, and the motion of the body was going on. But the serpents, they are said to live for a long time, so much so that laying aside the old off old age and the testimony was that he in his youth he to return to. [47] The tunics of the spoils of snakes are called, because that, if they, when they grow old they put off themselves, which in its youth, stripped of their return. For they are called and the spoils of GARB, because they are clad, and lost their. [48] of the marrow of Pythagoras, he says of a dead man, which is found in the spine, that the serpent to be created which, too, Ovid in the Metamorphoses, from recording the saying, "(15,398):

There are those who shut up, with the spine is rotted in the tomb
they believe to be changed human snake to the core.

That if we believe it, it comes about that the merit of the serpent, as it was by man 's death, so also is a dead man of a serpent. It is reported that the naked man that "the serpent did not attempt to touch them.

V. OF THE VERMIBVS. [1] worm is a living creature, which for the most part of the flesh, and / or of the tree, or wood or some other earthly material, without intercourse or is begotten; although it is sometimes are born from eggs, like the scorpion. But there are worms, or the earth, or of water, or air, or the flesh, or of the branches, or the wood, or in clothes. [2] A spider is a worm of the air, the surname of nourishment from the weather; things that are required long threads brings down the body, and the web were always intent never ceasing to toil, constantly suffering in his own art to be hanged. [3] a water leech has a worm, so called because the blood disappears.

[4] Scorpio, a worm is the earthly, who are better becomes a member of worms, not snakes; an animal armed with a sting, and with it in Greek name, because it should ever print a the tail and spreads the poison through shaped wound. It is proper to that of the scorpion will not sting the palm of the hand. [5] cantharides of earth of a worm [Who in creating man, applied in the body immediately, the, of his burning, bladders full of humor makes].

[8] SILK-WORM is a leaf worm, and from her tissue of SILK GARMENTS is accomplished. But been acclaimed by this name from the fact that while he be swept clean of thread and only air is in him be stayed. [9] a worm caterpillar is a leaf in the manner of herbs, and / or [in the] wrapped up with a tendril, from the erodendo given above. Of Plautus, which it remembers the (Cist. 728):

Followed the wicked and worthless beast and the magicians, wrapped up into a vine; he implicates himself.

Flies up and does not, like the locust, as here, running through the side and the other semipasta not let go, but stays with corn, and perishable slow because of the fall of the bites of pigrisque consumes everything. [10] the Greeks call Teredonas of wood worms, which eat up by rubbing. These termites us we do say. For in this manner among the Latins, the tree of worms, which are the time of the trees were cut inoportuno bear. [11] a worm moth to a garment, so called because he holds, and to this end which insedat erodat. From thence and stubborn, that in the the same thing again and again urges it.

[13] called to be an HEMICRANIA worm of the head. Lumbricus, a worm of the intestines, called as lumbicus, because it errs, or and / or that is in the loins. [14] Ä ascaride Peduculi the rib from the skin by the feet of worms of the said. And so also the peducosi which are said to peduculi effervescunt in the body. [15] fleas you are calling from the dust, that they said, are nourished rather by. Be taken in refuting the tarmus Superior is a worm fat. Tick, ricinus, a worm is a dog, so called because it sticks to the ears of dogs; KUON also have a dog for the Greek.

[17] of a certain son-of-a-bitch of a likeness to the grass he was called, of which the stench of the has. [18] Strictly speaking, however a worm is born in the flesh, rotten, the moth in the clothing of; rocket in the Hole; MOTH on the tree; the tarmus in the bacon. [19] The worm does not like a snake with scales, with visible steps or crept along the effort for, because there is lacks the firm spine, as of a serpent, but in a straight line of the corpuscle of his contracted in administering the parts of the step by step, explains the movement of that stretched to be contracted, and so driven by the glides through.

[4] cattle it and to the beasts and the fowls of the names of the men before they set than a fish, because as I saw before and knowing the are. Little by little, the fish he later was known the names of the kinds of institutions are either from his resemblance to land animals, or from the species of proper or morals [or color, or in figure, or sex]. [5] from resemblance, on earth: that of the calf and the frogs, and lions, and black and I fed the blackbird in a different color, on the back and neck, and painted, and a thrush white speckled, and the rest of the things that were near to the species took vengeance on the names of land animals.

Nothing is in the faster the sea of these; fountains for as a rule the ships fly past. When, however, praeludunt in the waves and the waves themselves headlong masses of the forest, find their mark, the storms seem to signify. These, properly speaking, of Simon are named. There is also a kind of dolphin in the Nile, glowing, on the back, who crocodiles kill by cutting into the tender of its belly. [12] Pigs, of the sea, for they commonly are called the swine, because when they seek food, in the manner of their lands are set to dig deep under the surface.
