It is not surprising that there have been persons who have made bees their exclusive study; Aristomachus of Soli, for instance, who for a period of fifty-eight years did nothing else; Philiscus of Thasos, also, surnamed Agrius,1 who passed his life in desert spots, tending swarms of bees. Both of these have written works on this subject.
