Theow rampant (Period)

Theow rampant (Period)

The theow, or thoye, is a rare monster resembling a mastiff or wolf, but with cloven hooves and a bovine muzzle and tail.  It was used as a badge by Sir Thomas Cheney c.1560 [Dennys 161].  The theow does not seem to have a default posture; the illustration shows a theow rampant.
