Θεόφραστος δὲ τὸ μὲν δένδρον.' πεύκην ὀνομάζει, τὸν δὲ καρπὸν κῶνον. Ἱπποκράτης δὲ ἐν τῷ περὶ πτισάνης, ἐκ τοῦ ἡμίσους μὲν νοθεύεται, ὑπ᾽ ἐνίων δὲ καὶ ὅλον, κοκκάλους: οἱ πολλοὶ δὲ πυρῆνας, ὡς καὶ Ἡρόδοτος ὅταν περὶ τοῦ Ποντικοῦ καρύου λέγῃ. φησὶ γάρ; ‘πυρῆνα δ᾽ ἔχει τοῦτο ἐπὰν γένηται πέπον.’ Δίφιλος δ᾽ Σίφνιός φησινοἱ στρόβιλοι πολύτροφοι μέν εἰσι, λεαντικοὶ δὲ ἀρτηρίας καὶ θώρακος καθαρτικοὶ διὰ τὸ ἔχειν παρεμπεπλεγμένον τὸ ὁητινῶδες.’ Μνησίθεος δέ φησι πιαίνειν αὐτοὺς τὸ σῶμα καὶ πρὸς εὐπεψίαν ἀλύπους εἶναι, ὑπάρχειν δὲ καὶ οὐρητικοὺς καὶ οὐκ ἐφεκτικοὺς κοιλίας.
