Table of Contents:
1 In B. ix. c. 18. The Gypsophila struthium, or soap-plant, possibly. Its identitys discussed at great length by Beckmann, Hist. Inv. Vol. II. p. 98—102 Bohn's Ed.
2 "Aureum poculum."
3 Desfontaines says that it is the Periploca angustifolia; Fée gives the Apocynum folio subrotundo of C. Bauhin, round leafed dogsbæ.
4 This is the fact; and hence one of its names "cynanche," or "dogstrangle."
