“The trident of Neptune is the scepter of the world.”*

Seventeenth century bas-relief of Fortuna with sail. The image is carved onto the stern of Fortune's Whelp, representing Fortune and her whelp, the namesake ship.

Edward McNaughton's silver-hilted French colichemarde. The silver hilt has a 1688 charge mark, the year such were instituted, and may therefore be earlier.
