Fureur, & rage.

En l’escu est un Lyon en fureur.
Au tour escript. Des hommes la terreur.
Armes jadis telles avec l’Énigme
Agamennon porta le magnanime.[1]

Icy sont notez les cruelz gens de guerre: qui leur
furieuse, & enragée cruaulté tesmoignent par les
cruelles bestes, & devises blasonnées en leurs escuz.

Notes:
