Ligusticum,1 by some persons known as "panax," is good for the stomach, and is curative of convulsions and flatulency. There are persons who give this plant the name of "cunila bubula;" but, as we have already2 stated, they are in error in so doing.

1 Or Lovage. See B. xix. c. 50.

2 In B. xix. c. 50, where he states that Crateuas has given to the wild Ligusticum the name of Cunila bubula, or "ox cunila."
