Luxure.

De grand luxure est symbole, ou marquette.
Rocquette est chaulde, & bouc luxurieux,[1]
Et les Satyrs des Nymphes amoureux.[2]

Ceste enseigne de luxure est prinse sur la nature de
l’herbe Rocquette esmouvant ŕ paillardise, & de la
beste Boucquine tresluxurieuse, donnant ŕ enten-
dre, que luxure eschaulfe ardemment: & puys put
villainement.

Notes:

1.  Rocket is described as herba salax at Ovid, Ars amatoria, 4.22. Pliny, Natural History, 10.83.182 and 19.44.154, lists it as an aphrodisiac.

2.  Satyrs were creatures half-human, half-goat in form, like Faunus, and Pan with whom Faunus was often identified. See emblems 91 ([FALb091]), and 115 ([FALb115]). Cf. Horace, Odes, 3.18.1: ‘Faunus, you who lust after the fleeing nymphs’.
