Prjeconsje, 233, 1.23. I do not find this word in Du Cango, or elsewhere. It sounds as if it would mean sconces, or candlesticks, or lanthorns, or something connected with lights. But in the list of bishop Gravescnd's benefactions, where it occurs, it is classed with vestments;—" casulis, "prasconsis, capis chori, .... aliis vestimentis."
Puoterminare, 101, 1. 5, and 121, 1. 5; to put off a matter for a time. Du Cange does not notice it. Ainsworth gives it as an obsolete word.
Regalia, of a bishop, or "baronia tota;" 104,1. 8; the temporalities, as generally called. See Du Cange, under Regalia (2).
Relevatio, 97, 1. 12; a relief; the fine duo to the lord on an heir succeeding to his estate.
Ribaldi, 69,1. 27; the lowest hangers-on of a court, or followers of an army; men ready to be employed on any ntrocity. See Du Cange.
Scrutinium, 212, 1. 16, and 215,1. 1. See under iNsriRATio,
Scurelli, 92, 1. 1; where we have "mures silvestres, qui "vulgari vocabulo scurelli dicuntur;" squirrels; Fr. ecurcuil.
Seriolius, 235,1. 2; in regular order or series. The word is not in Du Cange. "Seriatim " is the usual form.
Talaris Tunica, 42,1. 13. Where Giraldus speaks of Hugh having put this vestment on, when made a bishop. Durandus (Lib. iii., 10) says, "Post appositam stolam, "pontifex induit tunicam, quaj alibi. . . talaris dicebatur."
Texti -orum; treasured copies of the Gospels, ornamented with gold and silver and precious stones. Texlus -uum is the usual form. See Glossary I., vol. VI. In this sense the word seems certainly used in 32, 1. 2, and 195, 1. 23. So again, almost certainly, in 47, L 14; where, however, I have so stopped the passage, ns to make tcrtis seem the participle of ;i texo," agreeing with auLeis; but where, it now seems clear to me, I ought to have put a comma after pretiosissimis, as I have directed in the table of Corrigenda.
Tiiesaurum, 115, 1. 15; a neuter noun. Not an uncommon medieval form. See Du Cange.
Theta, the Or. letter ©; Obituary, 153, &c., passim. This letter, standing for ©avaro?, iu old days affixed by Greek and Roman judges to the name of a criminal sentenced to death, came to be used iu early Christian aud medieval times to represent "obiit" or "mortuus est," See Du Cange, under TH. It is especially so used in such records as the above Obituary, and even sometimes in regular chronicles. For instance, the Dunstable Annalist uses it continually. Wanley, of course, retained it, in his accurate transcript of the Dunstable manuscript; Hearne also, in his edition printed from this transcript of Wanley. In the edition printed in the present series, Mr. Luard, very wrongly I think, considering it a mere abbreviation of "obiit," has preferred always to place this in his text instead (Dunstable Annals, Luard, Preface, x, note). Another instance of the continual use of 6 will be found in the brief but valuable Tliorney Annals, in Nero, C. vii. (f. 79, &c.) of the British Museum.
Trutannicus, 123, 1. 5; false, lying; of or belonging to a trutanus, Fr. truant, a vagrant impostor. See Du Cange, under Trutanus. Giraldus has, "trutauica potius quam "historica euarratio," in vol. VI., 168, L 7.
Werua, 37, 1. 6; war. The more usual form is Gucrra, as at 103,1. 20.
