Roque (1 syl.)

.

A blunt, feeling old man in the service of Donna Floranthe. (George Colman: The Mountaineers.)

Saint Roque. Patron saint of those who suffer from plague or pestilence: this is because “he worked miracles on the plague-stricken, while he was himself smitten with the same judgment.”
