Brawn's Head

The head of a brawn, brought to King Arthur's court by a mysterious boy. Thrice he waved a wand over it and said, There's never a traitor of a cuckold, who can carve that head of brawn. Sir Kay was the only knight in Arthur's court who succeeded in doing so.

The same boy brought the Cuckold's Horn and a mantle which no one could wear who was unfaithful in love, false in domestic life, or treacherous to the king.
