Note on the dance:
See Apollo and Daphne.
Georgius in Walsh's Twenty Four Coun' Dances for the Year 1726„reprinted in The New Country Dancing Master 3d Book, [1728], is the same figure set to a different tune.

Note on the title:
Whilst ApoOo and Daphne have a centuries-old joint history, Flora and Phaon appears to be a random pairing of names.
