Asʹcapart

.

A giant conquered by Sir Bevis of Southampton. He was thirty feet high, and the space between his eyes was twelve inches. This mighty giant, whose effigy figures on the city gates of Southampton, could carry under his arm without feeling distressed Sir Bevis with his wife and horse. (See Giants.)

“As Bevis of Southampton fell upon Ascapart.”


Shakespeare: 2 Henry VI., act ii. 3.
