TARA'NTULA. n.s.

TARA’NTULA. n.s. [Italian; tarentule, French.] An inset
whose bite is cured only by musick.
This word, lover, did no less pierce poor Pyrocles than
the right tune of musick toucheth him that is sick of the ta
rantula. Sidney.
He that uses the word tarantula, without having any idea
of what it stands for, means nothing at all by it. Locke.
