Ex Actuarii Methodi Medendi, vi.—Haller, iv. p. 243.
This is called by Haller, a “farrago aromatum,” and is said to be from Myrepsus. It is in the text called an antidote of Hippocrates, “quo usus corona Athenis est donatus.” Many virtues are attributed to its employment; its doses are stated, and mode of administration; its preparation is finally given, constituted of about twenty-five ingredients, and no doubt was equally a panacea with the confectio Damocritis, and Theriaca so celebrated by Galen!
