And baccaris, and sagda too.And it is spoken of likewise by Aristophanes, in his Daitaleis; and Eupolis in his Marica says—
And all his breath is redolent of sagda:which expression Nicander of Thyatira understands to be meant as an attack upon a man who is too much devoted to luxury. But Theodorus says, that sagda is a species of spice used in fumigation.
