Rest: this is puzzling device, but the more probable interpretation is that it represents a spear rest, though possibly in one or two cases a horn from had drawing, has been mistaken for it. The device is called by Leigh and others Sufflue, and by Guillim Clarion, though he hints that it may be a rudder. Gibbon proposes the term Organ-rest, but mentions a MS. wherein it is called Claricimbal, or Clavecimbal. Morgan terms it a Clarendon, obviously a mistake for Clarion. It is otherwise called a Clavicord. Rest, however, is the term generally used for the device.
