The life and writings of Franco are much more interesting than the step on tarot.
The passage speaks of a soul of a soldier who does not have the money to give to Charon to be ferried beyond the Acheronte, because all his money has been lost, both in bed with children, both with whores and finally in playing cards.
Speaking of tarot, the soldier says that he never had the cards in his hand, neither the Angel nor Devil nor the treacherous Justice.

Images of ivory playing cards bought in a Cairo bazar by French traveller Mr. Émile Prisse d'Avennes (1807-1879), during his visit to Egypt in the period 1827-1844. He identified them as Persian by the style and quality.
In the Palazzo Poggi in Bologna some frescos painted by Niccolò dell’Abbate (1512-1571) represent men and women engaged in diverse pastimes. One shows them while playing cards, of which the Six of Coins and of Swords and the Four of Staves are easily identifiable; but since images of triumphs are missing, we don't know if the game was tarot. Bartholomeo Crivellari, from these frescos, created some engraved copies inserted in the work of Giampietro Zanotti, The Paintings of Pellegrino Tibaldi and Niccolò Abbati, printed in Venice in 1757.
