Admittedly I do not have a background in the manuscripts of this period. Perhaps singling out this specific pairing of knight and snail in the marginalia of the time makes sense to the scholars in the know. However, for my part, when I looked at some of the referenced blogs / writings, it seemed to me that there were quite a wide variety of snail activities, including snails and hares at war, as well as snail shells housing other organisms. I rather think that singling out this one aspect of snail depiction may not be the best way to go about identifying its allure and/or purpose to scholars of the time. One may need to look at the whole and not the part.
