1773 Excerpt: ...three forms. These men being called by divers
names were men of great esteem in former ages, being sometime
named, but by some part of their function. But now in this word
Herald (which signifieth the old lord or master, and is called: iti
Latin, veteranus, of his years and experience) are contained all
the other names, and functions, which do express some part of his
office. For he is called Faecialis, a f dere faciendo, in
denouncing wars or making peace; he is called Nuncius Regis,

office, which is to deal in matters of peace, and therefore hath
his Caduceus or white Bafton (omitted now, as many other things are
in his creation). The difference of which Faecialis and Caduceator,
is set down by Franciscus Philelphus in his epistles in this sort:

indicebant, if Caduceatores ejfe pads Legates ditlos a Caduceo

herald of the gods to bear, when he went on their message. This
herald is also called Praco; becauso he is to denounce his lords
proclamation and messages, the praises of valiant men, m peace; and
therefore, in blazon of the aims-of any, he must blaze them to the
honour and praise of the bearer, since Heraldus, as one writeth,
eft Praco virtutum, non vitloriarum hominum. Andyetlfind the name
Heraldus in Latin not ancienter than AEneas Sylvius, and no
ancienter mentioned amongst
