SPINETUM

SPINETUM
castellum Galliae, ad Suminam, in pago Pontivo, inter Pinquiniacum et Abbatisvillam, cum tuitulo Principatus vulgo Epinay.
Nomen ei a solo, in quo conditum est, spinoso. Sic Spinetum aliud est, iuxta Lusarchias, Espinay: et in Decanatu Linariensi, Espinay sur orge; vici Dioeceseos Parisiacae, aliaque in Gallia loca non pauca, hadr. Vales. At Spineta, vulgo vocatur instrumentum Musicum, compluribus aereis filis constans, in quo ordine digesta plectra subsilientia, corvinarum pennarum cuspidibus, ceu spinis, mucronata, sonum edunt: de quo supra in voce Clavicymbalum.
