ORPHEOREON.

ORPHEUS.

orpheoreon family. The player probably tuned as he chose. The forms 'Orpharion' and 'Pandora' occur in a book on the Lute and other instruments, entitled 'The Schoole of Musicke,' by Thomas Robinson, London, 1603. A copy is in the British Museum. There is another instrument which Prætorius describes as being like a pandore in the back; this was the Quinterna, or Chiterna. It differed, however, in other respects, as the ribs, belly, etc., were of simple outline, and the bridge was straight. He says it was tuned like the very earliest lutes (g), and depicts it in his illustrations as not unlike a guitar.
