bolt is described by R. Holme as being properly “an arrow with a round or half-round bobb at the end of it, with a sharp-pointed arrow-head proceeding therefrom” (Nares's Gloss., —where see more concerning it); but it is used to signify an arrow in general: “where the bolt of Cupid fell,” A MIDSUMMER-NIGHT'S DREAM, ii. 1. 165 ; “fool's bolt,” AS YOU LIKE IT, v. 4. 61 ; HENRY V., iii. 7. 119; “a bolt of nothing,” CYMBELINE, iv. 2. 301.
