    Catadromus, mi, m. g. Tranquill. A place where they ronne with horses for price, listes where deedes of armes be practised: also a kinde of engine like a Craine, which builders vse in lifting vp or letting downe any great waight. Fuit & alius Catadromi vsus, quum ex sublimi theatri parte per machinam quis dilapsus aliquem rapit, & secum sursum asportat. Iull. Poll.
