Bellis1 is the name of a plant that grows in the fields, with a white flower somewhat inclining to red; if this is applied with artemisia,2 it is said, the remedy is still more efficacious.

1 Probably the Bellis perennis of Linnæus, the Common daisy. Fée remarks, that it was probably unknown to the Greeks.

2 See B. xxv. .36.
