Diodes, the physician, has given to panic1 the name of "honey of corn."2 It has the same properties as millet, and, taken in wine, it is good for dysentery. In a similar manner, too, it is applied to such parts of the body as require to be treated with heat. Boiled in goats'-milk, and taken twice a-day, it arrests looseness of the bowels; and, used in a similar manner, it is very good for gripings of the stomach.

1 See B xviii. c. 25.

2 "Mel frugum."
