For diseases of the liver the malundrum1 is prescribed, a plant which grows in meadows and corn-fields, with a white odoriferous flower. The stem is diminutive, and is beaten up in old wine.

1 Clusius and Sprengel identify it with the Lychnis silvestris of Linnæus, the Wild lychnis or Viscous catchfly. Fée considers it to be un- known, but of the two, would prefer the Lychnis dioica of Linnæus, the White lychnis, or White campion.
