Table of Contents:
1 Judging from the text of Dioscorides, a passage has been probably lost here, to the effect that "it is taken in drink by persons troubled with lascivious dreams."
2 Identified with the Nymphæa alba of Linnæus, the White-flowered nymphæa.
3 "Adversatur ei allium." A corrupt reading, in all probability.
4 The Nuphar lutea of Sibthorp; the Yellow-flowered nymphæa, or Nenuphar.
