Panther, (fr. panthère): this beast is always borne gardant, and generally incensed, that is to say, with flames issuing from its mouth and ears, as in the case of the dexter supporter of the Earl of Pomfret. With the panther may be grouped the lynx(fr. loup cervier) and the ounce, both of which occur in several arms, the latter being found at an early date.
