It is not clear why the figure has two different endings; maybe the second ending was supposed to be used after the first (though there is no indication of how the dancers would know when to use it), or else the second might have been intended as a more exact and complete version. The discussion that introduces the second version indicates that Arbeau was not committed to the terms of the first version, which suggests that the first version may have been only a preliminary attempt to describe the steps.
This music has an uneven rhythm, with seven beats to the bar (7/1 time, modernized as 7/4).
