1 "Aqua mulsa." See B. xiv. c. 20, where it is described as Hydro- meli, or Melicraton.
2 Fée says that this must have been a wholesome beverage, but that it would cease to be so after undergoing fermentation. In the description of its uses there are some errors, Fée says, combined with some rational observations.
3 See B. xviii. c. 29; also c. 61 of this Book.
4 This seems to be the meaning of "præparei" here, though it generally signifies "niggardly," or "sordid."
5 Fée combats this theory at considerable length; but there can be little doubt that the same substance has not the same taste to all indi- viduals.
6 Seneca makes a similar observation, De Ira, B. iii. C. 10.
7 "Animi seu potius animæ."
