Some Readers of John Trevisa.

Notes and Queries 212 (1967): 291-92.

Identifies John of Trevisa's "Polychronicon" as the likely source for the Monk's use of "pileer" distinct from "boundes" (7.2126-27) in his account of Hercules, a distinction also made by John Lydgate in his "Troy Book." Comments on the uses of "Trophe(e)" by all three writers as well.
