Velocimane (masc. nn.)
(from Lat. velox, -ocis [speedy], and manus [hand]).
Special locomotive device for children, resembling a
horse, mounted on three or four wheels; also called
At once from life and from the chariot driv’n,
Th’ ambitious boy fell thunder-struck from Heav’n.
The horses started with a sudden bound,
And flung the reins and chariot to the ground:
The studded harness from their necks they broke,
Here fell a wheel, and here a silver spoke,
Here were the beam and axle torn away;
And, scatter’d o’er the Earth, the shining fragments lay.
— Ovid, Metamorphoses
Willingly would I burn to death like Phaeton, were this
the price for reaching the sun and learning its shape,
its size and its substance.
