    • 1321, Dante Alighieri, La divina commedia: Inferno [The Divine Comedy: Hell] (paperback), 12th edition, Le Monnier, published 1994, Canto XXIX, lines 145–154, page 454:
      E questi sette col primaio stuolo ¶ erano abitüati, ma di gigli ¶ dintorno al capo non facëan brolo, ¶ anzi di rose e d’altri fior vermigli; ¶ giurato avria poco lontano aspetto ¶ che tutti ardesser di sopra da’ cigli. ¶ E quando il carro a me fu a rimpetto, ¶ un tuon s’udì, e quelle genti degne ¶ parvero aver l’andar più interdetto, ¶ fermandosi ivi con le prime insegne.
      And like the foremost company these seven were habited; yet of the flower-de-luce no garland round about the head they wore, but of the rose, and other flowers vermilion; at little distance would the sight have sworn that all were in a flame above their brows. And when the car was opposite to me thunder was heard; and all that folk august seemed to have further progress interdicted, there with the vanward ensigns standing still.
