Greyhound

“A greyhounde shoulde be heded like a snake, And neked like a Drake; Foted like a Kat, Tayled like a Rat; Syded like a Teme, Chyned like a Beme.” (Dame Berner.)

“Syded like a teme,” probably means both sides alike; a plough-team being meant.

Greyhound

A public-house sign, in honour of Henry VII., whose badge it was.
