1 See Theophrastus, B. iv. c. 5.
2 Dalechamps and Desfontaines are of opinion, that the pistachio, or Pistacia terebinthus of Linnæus, is here alluded to; but Fée considers that there are no indications to lead to such a conclusion.
3 It is not improbable that he may here allude to the cotton-tree, of which further mention is made in c. xxi. of the present Book.
4 Fée is of opinion that Cynorrhodon here means, not the dog-rose, but the gall which is formed on the tree by the sting of the Cynips bedeguar.
