Used in:  Ekskybalauron*, on the extra-ordinariness of his invented language: "insomuch as one word will hardly be believed by our fidimplicitary gown men, who, satisfied with their predecessors contrivances, and taking all things litterally, without examination, blate-rate, to the nauseating even of vulgar ears, those exotick proverbs, There is no new thing under the sun, Nihil dictum quod non dictum prius, and, Beware of philosophers; authoridating this on Paul, the first on Solomon, and the other on Terence."


*Full title: Ekskybalauron or, The discovery of a most exquisite jewel, more precious then diamonds inchased in gold, the like whereof was never seen in any age;: found in the kennel of Worcester-streets, the day after the fight, and six before the autumnal √¶quinox, anno 1651. Serving in this place, to frontal a vindication of the honour of Scotland, from that infamy, whereinto the rigid Presbyterian party of that nation, out of their coveteousness and ambition, most dissembledly hath involved it.
