Éginhard Vita" Caroli magni imperatoris"-Lettrine V historiée Charlemagne assis, abbaye St-Martial de Limoges v.1050.- 11) L'ACADEMIE PALATINE: Le 1° des 2 passages cités exprime l'admiration sincère quoique relative, du docte anglais pour la discipline intellectuelle de la Grèce antique; le second, malgré une touche d'humour, ne dément pas l'impression produite par le précédent. ALCUIN est, somme toute, un bon témoin de la révérence carolingienne envers la culture "classique".

Below: another grotesque with a rodent head and a foliate tendril instead of a tongue & scaly legs
