Translated by Francis Adams
If procidentia ani be attended with a discharge of blood, pare off the
rind of the root of wakerobin, then pound and mix flour with it, and apply
it warm as a cataplasm. Another: Having scraped off the rind of the most
tender roots of the wild vine, which some call psilothrion, boil in a dark
austere wine undiluted; then having pounded, apply as a tepid cataplasm;
but mix also flour and stir it up with white wine and oil in a tepid state.
Another:-Having pounded the seed of hemlock, pour on it a fragrant white
wine, and then apply in a tepid state as a cataplasm.
