Subject:    Query: Con

In an Elizabethan allegorical MS, the following is part of an extended 
description of Clementia.

"This scarfe fallynge downe from her shoulder & Commynge under her arme 
shall cover her lyvely sprynge of redde rose water."

I've been unable to find any treatment of Clementia in which such a 
spring (or rose water, or even roses, for that matter) is one of her 
attributes. If anybody has any ideas, please let me know.
