penus modo; in classical Latin, penus is food or provisions; hence apparently a cabinet or compartment of a larder. Vesalius mentions the theft of a woman’s body from such a chamber (Bk. 5, Ch. 15 (1555) p. 663), “ . . . the attractive mistress of a monk at the church of St. Anthony here. ... The medical students at the University of Padua had snatched her out of her tomb and brought her around for a public dissection.”
