Loan 1904, p. 147

Only two upper, no lower corners. Head (and pegbox) not original. Probably a small rather than bass-sized instrument, as Loan 1904 calls the latter “viola da gamba” and this, like other trebles and tenors, “viol”. Compare the “Lira-Viola by Gasparo da Salò, Brescia, 1561” at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (Boyden 1969, no. 9; not in this database), which however has only two lower, no upper corners.
